According to MANA, the successful call of the 18,000 teu ship on Monday “is the first step for a regular Vietnamese service”, Maersk Line wrote to Lloyd’s List in an email.
The company said the move came as the global liner shipping market has been experiencing a pick-up since late last year, with a narrowing gap between cargo demand and vessels supply.
