55 container vessels slated to call in March

A total of 55 container vessels are scheduled to arrive at the Yangon Port in March 2024, the Myanma Port Authority announced.
In March, seven container vessels run by Maersk  Line, six each by Cosco Shipping  Line and Samudera Shipping  Line, five each by MSC Line and SITC Shipping Line, four each by CMA CGM Line and Ti2 Container Line, three each by Evergreen Line, ONE Line and RCL Line, two each by Bay Line, BLPL Shipping, Land and Sea, and PIL Line and one by IAL Shipping Line, are slated to enter the Yangon Port. Myanma Port Authority stated that 49 vessels in January and 53 in February docked at the Yangon Port.
Yangon Port handled 629 container vessels in 2023. Thanks to the draft extension, the international ocean liners can access the inner port for now, according to the Myanma Port Authority’s statement on 22 June 2022.
After the new navigation channel (Kings Bank Channel) accessing the inner Yangon River had been explored, the draft extension work was accelerated. After that, the port can now handle larger ships. The container vessel (185.99 metres LOA, 35.25 metres Beam, 29,232 GRT and 2,698 TEU), Hong Kong-based SITC Shipping Line, docked at Asia World Port Terminal for the first time on 22 June 2023, which is the largest ship that AWPT Port handled.
From May 2021, the arrival of the ships at terminals in Yangon has increased again. To fulfil the seaborne trade requirements, three new container vessels by Maersk Line Myanmar (SeaLand Maersk) started to run in 2021. Earlier, the larger ships had draft problems preventing their manoeuvring on the Yangon River. With the draft being extended up to 10 metres, more giant ocean liners can enter the Thilawa Port. — NN/EM
