MOL provides tug service in Vietnam
MOL has established a joint venture with two local companies in Vietnam to launch a tugboat business in the Cai Mep-Thi Vai deepwater container port area, about 50 kilometers southeast of Ho Chi Minh City.
'The number of large-scale vessels calling at the ports will continue to increase, so stable tugboat service is indispensable,' MOL said. The service operates under the name Tan Cang-Cai Mep Towage Services Co. Ltd.
MOL and its partners, Saigon Newport Corp. and Haivan Shipping-Services Corp., have initially allocated two 4,000 horsepower tugs for the service.
