The Savannah - Vietnam Connection Just Got Stronger

 

 Made for the USA in Vietnam

 The boy may be an American but his baseball mitt was made in Vietnam.  It made its way to him in Atlanta from Cai Mep via the Port of Savannah on one of the growing number of services connecting Vietnam to this port city on the Southeastern coast of Georgia. Indeed the fastest growing and fourth largest port in the U.S., the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA), is now increasingly playing a larger role in U.S.A. trade with Vietnam.  Recently, GPA’s Port of Savannah announced the beginning of the South China/Vietnam/Savannah (SVS) Service. This U.S.A. East Coast service connects Cai Mep (Vung Tau) with Savannah in 34 days.  Its carriers consist of APL, Evergreen, Hyundai Merchant Marine, and Mitsui OSK Lines.

 

In addition to the SVS, the Port of Savannah is connected to Vietnam via the Grand Alliance’s AEX service, with transit times from Cai Mep to Savannah of 32 days.  Its carriers consist of Hapag Lloyd, NYK, and OOCL.  Further, the CKYH Group’s AWE4 service has a travel time to Cai Mep from Savannah of 27 days; its participants are K-Line, Cosco, Hanjin, Yang Ming, and MOL.  The development of these services is ably supported by Bui Quang Hung and Tran Ngoc Thanh, through Barwil Sunnytrans Company Ltd., who represent that Port of Savannah in HCM City.
