In the third quarter of 2020, Vietnam Sea Shipping Joint Stock Company (Vosco, HoSE: VOS) recorded a decrease of 12% in net revenue compared to the same period last year, to VND293 billion. Notably, other profits reached nearly 38 billion, while the figure in the same period was only 19 million dong. According to VOS, in the third quarter, the company sold and handed over the Vega Star vessel with a turnover of 36 billion dong.

During the period, financial expenses and administrative expenses increased simultaneously. As a result, VOS reported a loss of nearly 22 billion dong, while the same period saw a loss of over 74 billion dong.

VOS explains the reason because the shipping market continues to face many difficulties with the impact of the second wave of Covid-19 epidemic in many countries. Facing this situation, VOS has applied many measures to manage techniques, fuel, spare parts and materials, at the same time take advantage of opportunities to increase the efficiency of ship operation. In addition, thanks to the handover of the Vega Star vessel in the third quarter, although the business result still suffered losses, the loss decreased over the same period.
