With over 60 years of experience in providing maritime services, the Vietnam Maritime Corporation (VIMC) has unique advantages in terms of synchronous equipment, and modern transport systems meeting the requirements of the world’s leading shipping lines and multinational corporations. Its large port system, along with modern specialized equipment and warehouses in all three coastal regions of Vietnam will be an important factor in strengthening VIMC’s brand name in this field.
Company heads say that in order to maintain a leading position in the maritime industry, VIMC will continue adopting measures to spur growth of its seaports and sea transport and maritime services. This will also lay the foundation for VIMC to join the international shipping alliance in the future.
To accomplish this goal, VIMC intends to focus resources on three key activities. The first is developing core competencies – an important factor for achieving competitive advantage by providing outstanding value for customers. The second is creating a unique advantage from integrating seaport operations, shipping and maritime services in providing logistics service packages to customers, and the third is applying advanced information technology, especially in the management and operation of seaports to provide leading solutions for users.
VIMC’s maritime services are spread across the country and provided by large enterprises with many years of experience and an experienced, well-trained and enthusiastic workforce. Its state-of-the-art warehouse system includes the ICD Phuoc Long, ICD Nam Hoa, ICD Lao Cai, and the CFS warehouse in Dinh Vu, along with a modern transportation fleet providing inland trucking services across the country, meeting requirements of major shipping lines such as NYK, MOL, K-Line as well as multinational shipping lines operating in Vietnam.
In order to realize the corporation’s policies, the VIMC Container Ship Operation Center has also connected its shipping and seaports services with international shipping lines belonging to the group of 20 largest container shipping lines in the world (such as ONE, HMM, GSL, HPL, etc). The center has also cooperated with the Hyundai Shipping Line (the Republic of Korea) to deploy a common container transport service on the Hai Phong-Yantian-Hong Kong-Da Nang-Ho Chi Minh City route; with the Gold Star Lines/ZIM-Israel shipping lines to deploy joint container transport service on the Hai Phong-Kham Chau-Dachanbay-Hong Kong-Cai Mep Thi Vai-Ho Chi Minh City route; and signed principle contracts with the CMA-CGM, Hapag Lloyd, Cosco, Yangming, PIL shipping lines to transport goods on domestic and international feeder routes.
Apart from the above solutions, the corporation has officially changed its international brand name from Vinalines to VIMC. Its new logo displays a blue and white stylized globe icon, representing the sea and sky, suggesting its development across the world, symbolizing modernity and creativity, conveying a sense of security and friendliness to customers while acting as an active locomotive to spur VIMC affiliates to greater success.
The change in its brand identity reflects the corporation’s determination to innovate its operations and services. Operating as a joint stock company since August 2020, VIMC has set new standards in business, ensuring stable development in the present period despite its many challenges.
Determined to maintain its top position in providing a package of global logistics service solutions in Vietnam, VIMC is committed to providing customers with outstanding value and expanding trading opportunities while ensuring a modern working environment, and stimulating potential and development opportunities for its staff.
These standards are set to guide all activities and plans in order to implement the corporations “exceeding expectations” philosophy for the benefit of customers, shareholders, partners, and society. VIMC is confident of its ability to prove itself as an important link in the global supply chain underpinning globalization, in Vietnam’s international integration and in the leveling of the global playing field.
