Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam National Shipping Lines (Vinalines)’s container shipping centre will be put into operation on December 17, said Vinalines Deputy General Director Do Thi Ngoc Trang.

In the near future, 10 vessels carrying Vinalines containers will be managed by the centre, said Trang, who is also Director of the centre, adding that it will help form a network to professionally tap into Vinalines containers and prevent internal competition among Vinalines container businesses.

Once operational, the centre will help Vinalines become flexible in arranging vessels’ schedule and services.

It will also cut half of management cost, equivalent to nearly 18.7 billion VND (813,000 USD), due to decrease in workforce and office rentals.-VNA
