HCMC – Three South Korean shipping lines – Pan Ocean Lines, Hyundai Merchant Marine and SM Lines – have jointly inaugurated a container shipping route linking Vietnam’s HCMC and three other Asian countries – Thailand, China and South Korea.
Container ships active on the route, with a weekly service, will transport cargo from the SP-ITC International Container Terminal in HCMC to Leamchabang Port in Thailand, the Port of Incheon in South Korea, and Hekou Port, the Port of Qingdao and the Port of Shanghai in China.
The new route is expected to contribute to boosting the transport of goods between Vietnam and the three other countries.
In late 2021, the State-owned Vietnam Maritime Corporation opened a container shipping route linking Vietnam, Malaysia and India. With the launch of the shipping route, the transportation time is shortened by 10 days.
