The Ocean Drover is one of the world’s largest livestock carriers with 176.7m in length, 13,462 DWT tonnage. The handling time of the ship cargo was estimated at 48 hours. However, with professional staff and modern equipment, Long An International Port managed to cut down the time and completed the handling work 11 hours ahead of schedule, helping the ship to leave the port earlier than planned.
