MARITIME CARGO SHIPPING IN VIETNAM GROWS 17 PERCENT IN

In the first half of this year, 254.8 million tonnes of cargoes were handled, via Vietnam's seaports, up 17 percent year-on-year, according to the Vietnam Maritime Administration, on Sunday.

Specifically, Vietnamese container ships carried 69.9 million tonnes of cargoes, up nine percent.

Foreign fleets currently hold a lion's share for the local maritime cargo shipping market.

The Vietnamese fleet has a modest market share, mainly due to lack of container ships, capable of making long journeys, such as those to the United States, Europe and Africa, as well as, lack of a strong logistics system, said local experts.

Only 0.4 percent of nearly 297,000 logistics firms in Vietnam, are maritime logistics service providers, said the administration, under the Transport Ministry.
