Cai Mep Port in Phu My Town, Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, is now among the top 30 largest container ports in the world, according to consultancy firm Alphaliner.

Despite maintaining consistent throughput levels from previous years, Cai Mep Port achieved nearly 5.6 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) last year, surpassing ports like Savannah in the U.S. and Manila in the Philippines.

This ascent propelled Cai Mep Port two positions higher, securing the 30th spot among the world’s largest container ports.

With total throughput of nearly 8.4 million TEUs, Cat Lai Port in Ho Chi Minh City ascended one place from 21st to 20th in the ranking, maintaining its position as the largest container port in Vietnam.

Within Southeast Asia, Cat Lai Port ranks fifth behind Singapore, Port Kelang, Tanjung Pelepas (all in Malaysia), and Laem Chabang (Thailand).

As such, Vietnam had two container ports in the top 30 globally in 2023.
