QUY NHON (VNS) — The Quy Nhon New Port Joint Stock Company has put into operation a 220-metre wharf, which can handle 37,500-tonne container ships.
The new facility, which was built next to the main wharf at a cost of VND200 billion (US$9.4 million), aims to ease the overloaded Quy Nhon port, said General Director of the Quy Nhon port Nguyen Huu Phuc on Tuesday.
The Quy Nhon port has received over 1,000 ships so far this year, including 529 from abroad with customs clearance for more than 5.7 million tonnes of goods, a year-on-year increase of 16.6 per cent.
It is expected to have 6.3 million tonnes of cargo passed through customs at the end of this year.
Thanks to its geographical advantages, the Quy Nhon port complex is home to three seaports, including two trade ports, namely Quy Nhon Port and Quy Nhon New Port, and a military port.— VNS
