The 2,274 TEU boxship Maersk Nicolai is the first feeder vessel owned by Maersk Line to call at Tan Vu port, Haiphong, Vietnam.

The ship sailed from Cai Lan and made its first call at the Tan Vu port on April 10, 2015. The ship is deployed on Maersk Line’s NV5 service connecting Haiphong to other ports in Vietnam, Singapore and Tanjung Pelepas (Malaysia).

With a 35,000-ton capacity, Maersk Nicolai is the biggest ship to call at Haiphong port so far. This is the first voyage withinMaersk Line’s upgraded NV5 service.

”We are very optimistic about our long-term development in Vietnam as Maersk Line is still leading the market after 24 years. We are confident of Vietnam’s strong growth potential and the government’s commitment on the sustainable and stable development of the economy,” said Bich Nguyen, General Director, Maersk Vietnam.

”The volumes at Haiphong have seen positive growth of about 15% year-on-year, hence the upgrade of our NV5 service. By deploying this bigger ship, we show our commitment to the development of trade in North Vietnam. We will continue to expand our network and services in Vietnam in line with the market demand.”
