Capability to receive large ships:
Up to now, CMIT is the only port allowed by the Ministry of Transport to receive large container ships up to 214,000 DWT. Currently, CMIT receives 4 mother ships per week, directly going to both the East Coast and West Coast of the United States, operated by the world's largest shipping alliances such as 2M alliance (Maersk, MSC and Zim), Cosco shipping line /OOCL. The ships docking at the port have gradually increased to 214,000 DWT, thanks to the loading and unloading capacity and the abundant source of goods during Vietnam's sharp increase in import and export activities in recent years.
Mining output has continuously increased over the years (except in 2021, which has a lower growth rate due to the impact of Covid-19) but in general CMIT still fulfills the plan, it is expected that handling and handling output will recover better. in this year.
Over the past 4 years, CMIT has implemented the CMIT Way of Working (Way of Working), building an innovation culture in which Kaizen improvement tools are applied to each department, each department, and each operation.
CMIT is the first port in the port cluster to deploy an automatic customs supervision and management connection system for goods; make e-invoices, e-delivery orders, cashless payments, participate in the TradeLens supply chain platform using blockchain technology, deploy an online cargo portal to report tram operations death.
Advantages of smart port model
Also located in Cai Mep port cluster, Gemalink International Port has just been put into operation, but the volume of goods passing through the port has grown very fast.
The port has a total area of 72ha, currently exploits 800m of berth for mother ships, 260m of berth for feeder ships on an area of 33ha (this is only phase 1 of this port project, handling capacity for 2 phases can be up to 3 million TEU/year).
The port is equipped with a very modern Korean STS 8 super crane with a height of 92m (equivalent to a 22-storey building), 150m long, 27m wide, weighing more than 1,700 tons, with a reach of 24+2 rows. containers. From shore, the crane can reach 70m to the sea, can lift 2 containers of 20 feet or bulk and project cargo with tonnage of 65 tons and 85 tons. Along with the STS supershore crane, Gemalink port is equipped with 18 E-RTG cranes from Sweden and other modern equipment.
Thus, it can be said that, thanks to the timely transformation to a smart port model, increasing the capacity to receive and handle large-scale goods, it is the strong growth of foreign trade activities in recent years that has created new sources of income. stable, abundant goods, attracting shipping lines and shippers to Vietnam's seaports, typically Cai Mep port cluster, putting Vietnam on a more impressive position on the global maritime and seaport map.
