DP World readies Vietnam terminal inauguration

Ho Chi Minh City: October 1 this year has been set as the date by terminal operator DP World for the official inauguration of its Saigon Premier Container Terminal (SPCT). A joint venture between DP World and Vietnam's IPC, SPCT is located on the Soai Rap River 15 kilometres from Ho Chi Minh City.
Glen Hilton, vice president and managing director, DP World SE Asia Region, said: "With 500 metres of wharf and five cranes in Phase I, SPCT can easily handle the largest vessels currently calling at Ho Chi Minh City. Dredging of the Soai Rap River to 9.5 metres, completed by the end of 2010, will cut two hours off current steaming time and double the size of alongside vessels to 5,000 TEU."
A rash of new terminals are opening up south of Ho Chi Minh City. [28/07/09]
