Work on the project will begin by the end of this year.

The terminal in the southern province of Ba Ria – Vung Tau will have its width increased from 310 meters to 350 meters and depth from 14 meters to 15.5 meters, according to the Maritime Project Management Board under the Ministry of Transport.

Currently, the terminal only allows ships with 8,000 twenty-foot equivalent units to dock when the tide rises.

The Cai Mep – Thi Vai terminal has seven container ports in operation. It is the first terminal in Vietnam that is capable of receiving 214,000-ton ships.

The government plans to make the terminal an international transshipment hub.
