Vietnam’s SSIT Welcomes MSC Boxship

Vietnam’s SP-SSA International Terminal (SSIT) in Cai Mep welcomed its first container vessel, the MSC Rosaria, on June 14.

The boxship, owned and operated by MSC Geneva, will make regular port calls at SSIT in the future.

With effect from June, container operations were added to the terminal, complementing SSIT’s operations going forward.

SSIT is a joint venture port established in 2006 between two Vietnamese companies, namely Saigon Port and Vinalines, and the US-based SSA Marine.

Since October 2014, the port, which is the largest and busiest bulk port in southern Vietnam, has been handling bulk vessels.
