Deep Sea Terminal for Haiphong

by | Jul 9, 2018

North Vietnam has recently opened its first deep-sea container terminal in the North, with some steamship lines expected to make calls with larger vessels by the end of this year.

Haiphong International Container Terminal (HICT) has been built to serve the booming industrial region and is expected to handle around 150,000 TEU this year.

Restrictions on the River Cam previously limited Haiphong to 2,000 TEU ships, which has meant that only feeder vessels were capable of calling at the port.

However, the new terminal, constructed south of the river estuary on Cat Hai island, will be able to accommodate vessels of up to 14,000 TEU.

Operating with two berths, the terminal currently has two cranes in operation, with four more due to be added by February 2019. This will increase the overall capacity to up to 1.1 million TEU per year.

UniOcean Lines are operating numerous vessel loops from Asia, including our Trans Pacific, Northern Europe, Australasia and Inter Asian services.
