As part of development of the regular sea service FESCO VIETNAM DIRECT LINE (FVDL) connecting ports of Vietnam with Commercial Port of Vladivostok (CPV, a FESCO Group company) FESCO Transportation Group (“FESCO”, the “Group”) has put a second vessel to operate on the line.
Thus, the container service will be served by two container ships - A HOUOU with a capacity of 850 TEU and BAL BOAN with a capacity of 750 TEU.
The line operates on route Vladivostok - Haiphong (Vietnam) - Ho Chi Minh (Vietnam) - Vladivostok. Regularity - 2 times per month. Transit time en route from CPV to ports of Vietnam is 9-12 days.
Starting from November 1, port Ho Chi Minh will also be a transshipment port for shipping container cargo from Thailand, Malaysia, India and Pakistan to Russia, which will reduce cargo delivery time between countries of the Asia-Pacific region and ports of the Far East.
FESCO has launched a regular FVDL sea line in May 2022. During this time more than 6.5 thousand TEUs were transported in both directions.
