Mitsui O.S.K Lines Ltd.(MOL)'s MOL Precision made its first call at Tan Cang-Cai Mep International Terminal (TCIT) in Vietnam on January 15, where a welcoming ceremony was held in commemoration of the event.  

Attended by approximately 200 people, including government officials, this marked the start of a direct service from Vietnam to North Europe introduced by The New World Alliance (TNWA). TNWA created the new route by adding a Vietnam call to their JEX service.

During the ceremony, Hiroki Tsujii, Vice President in charge of Asia-Europe and West Africa Trade Management at MOL Liner, Ltd., said "By having direct access to Europe as well as Transpacific, we hope Ho-Chi-Min and Vietnam economy can grow more and be competitive to the other countries.  We, MOL, as terminal operator / shipping carrier, are willing to support Vietnamese business and wish to grow together."
