Seatrade Asia Week exclusive: Vinalines lays out plans to treble fleet size to 10m dwt

Singapore: The latest issue of regional shipping e-newspaper Seatrade Asia Week is out and carries a lead story on the dramatic plans for growth at Vinalines. A senior Seatrade correspondent caught up with Vinalines chairman Duong Chi Dzung in Hanoi this week. Dzung revealed plans to treble the size of his fleet in the coming decade to around 10m dwt. The plans call for a greater diversification of the fleet, with more containerships of up to 2,000 teu and a number of aframax tankers.
Inside the newspaper there are reports from across the region, including the worrying rise of piracy in the South China Sea, the Indian flagged fleet surpassing 10m dwt for the first time, while editor Marcus Hand looks at the increasingly tense standoff between shippers and the containerlines in this week's analysis.  
No other shipping title has invested in such a wide, expert network of Asian correspondents. Seatrade Asia Week comes out 50 times a year and is priced at just $300 a year. To subscribe click here.   [24/09/10]
