Logistics Manager

Maersk subsidiary MCC Transport recently announced they have commenced calls at the Haiphong International Container Terminal (HICT) in Vietnam. The Port is the first deep-sea port to be located in North Vietnam. By adding HICT, MCC Transport has further strengthened and enhanced their commitment to opening new trade opportunities for their customers and the South East Asia region.

Chief Commercial Officer of MCC Transport, Naresh Potty explained, “We strongly believe in the future growth of North Vietnam. By calling HICT with 3 weekly services, we can offer our customers the widest coverage from the start which is expected to provide them more opportunities for business all over the world.”

The North Vietnamese port has a deep draft of 14 meters. This enables larger container ships to call at the port directly. This latest development will add a substantial boost to the economic growth of the region along with opening new business opportunities for the rest of Asia.

MCC Transport was one of the first to call at HICT on May 23rd, 2018. The first visit received positive feedback from their stakeholders and customers. MCC decided soon after their first visit to officially add HICT to their weekly services. Trade will now be boosted between Vietnam, China and rest of Southeast Asia with the new NV4, SE1 and SE2 services.
