According to APMT, Cai Mep International Terminal (CMIT) will transform Vietnamese ports because it will handle almost 600,000 teu in 2012 - 50% of the amount currently moving through the Cai Mep area.

Vietnamese ports play a vital role in global sourcing due to the strength of infrastructure, accessibility and productivity. The Cai Mep terminal has only been in operation for a year but already has several competitors.

Steen Davidson, managing director, CMIT, said: “Our productivity has already reached world-class levels regularly exceeding 40 crane moves per hour which shows how competitive Vietnamese ports can be.”

State president of Vietnam, H.E. Truong Tan Sang led a delegation on a recent visit to CMIT. He was accompanied by president of Ba Ria-Vung Tau People’s Committee, Tran Minh Sanh, Ba Ria-Vung Tau deputy party chief, Nguyen Hong Linh, vice minister of planning and investment, Nguyen Van Trung and several other officials visited on a fact finding mission to see how Vietnam’s international ambitions are led by the port.

Mr. Nguyen Xuan Ky, commercial director, CMIT, said: “Given the current surplus capacity in Cai Mep, terminal operators need to attract more transhipment volumes to Vietnamese ports to fuel future growth. To achieve this, we need assistance from the government to make port charges more competitive with other Southeast Asian countries and this is a key message we shared with the President.”
