received Maersk Line’s EEE vessel Margrethe Maersk with close to 20,000 TEU.

Authorisation for the world’s largest container ships

CMIT has obtained permission from Ministry of Transport and Vietnam Maritime Administration to accommodate 214,121 DWT vessels. These vessels are currently sailing the world’s oceans and among the few largest container ships in the world today.

Being one of the market leaders in the Cai Mep deep-water port complex, CMIT has always been pioneer to accommodate big sized container vessels since the very first day of operations. Experience drawn from the successful trial calls of the ultra large container vessels at CMIT built up important foundation for Ministry of Transport and Vinamarine to grant permission for other Cai Mep ports to accommodate big vessels.
