The Compagine Côtière d’Annam (Annam Coastal Company) was established in 1923 by the Denis brothers, and was to link small ports and facilitate exchange between the agricultural Cochinchina, a rice exporter, and Tonkin’s mining regions.
In 1953 the Compagnie de Navigation (Navigation Company) became the Denis Brothers Navigation Company (C.N.D.F.).
In 1954, the Geneva Agreements put an end to the north-south maritime traffic in Vietnam and the Denis Brothers headquarters would move to Paris.

On the Yser embankment, in the middle of the financial district (Bank of Indochina, Franco-Chinese Bank, Bank of Hong Kong and Shanghai), is located one of the oldest buildings in Saigon, built in 1862 out of red brick. It is that of the Imperial Maritime Transport Company, which became the Messageries Maritimes under the Third Republic.
Ships would travel up the Saigon River to the harbor, 83 Km. (51½ miles) from the sea. The docks and M.M. building were immortalized in Jean-Jacques Annaud's film “L ‘Amant” (The Lover), from the novel by Marguerite Duras.

The Messageries Martimes

Les Messageries Maritimes in Saigon

The Far-East is the exclusive domain of the Messageries Maritimes. Saigon is the company’s second home-port, from which radiate small-tonnage ships assigned to local lines. They provide service to Haiphong for the north of the country, as well as for the Poulu-Condor islands and their penal colony built in the 1880’s in the image of the one in Cayenne (Guyana).
During the ‘70's the Messageries Maritimes (MM) and the Compagnie Génèrale Transatlantique (CGM) merged to form the Compagnie Générale Maritime (C.G.M.).

The ship “Argoat” provided daily service from Cape St. Jacques (Rach Dua) to Saigon (dock near the Hotel Majestic), and the other ship providing the connection in the other direction was the “Armor”.
With the Armor and the Argoat Breton sailors were quite in evidence in this part of Indochina!!
At the end of the war in Indochina in 1954, the newly secured road would outpace the river link by halving the travel time, and the line would be abandoned in 1955.
Today the trip by hydrofoil (of Russian manufacture) from Cape St. Jacques (Vung Tàu) to Saigon is made in 1 hour, 30 minutes instead of the 5 to 6 hours according to the tides at the beginning of the ‘50’s.

The majority of black market items come from the post exchanges, clubs, commissaries, U.S. aid and military warhouses and from ships unloading American goods at the docks.
As much as 25 per cent of cargo unloaded from an ocean-going vessel in Saigon harbor may be lost by the time it has been conveyed through the confused system of river traffic to city warehouses and inland stations.
