Vietnam plans second container port near Ho Chi Minh City

THE Vietnamese government is planning to build another container port on the outskirts of Ho Chi Minh City, with several sites under consideration, following the surge in container volumes between East Asia and Southeast Asia, especially Vietnam.

The increased throughput has been brought about by the trade tensions between the US and China with some manufacturers shifting production from China to Vietnam, according to Netherlands Fresh Plaza .



That growth has led to the need for more port capacity and Ho Chi Minh City's transportation department is reviewing four sites in accordance with the port development plan for 2021 to 2030. The department's first choice is a site next to Long Tau River in Binh Khanh Commune.



The consultant for the project, Hang Hai Construction Consultation, said that the port would occupy 250 hectares and can accommodate container ships of up to around 3,600 TEU.



An article on container-news.com explains how the transportation department said that the location is ideal as the port can be linked to the Ben Luc-Long Thanh Expressway, which is under construction. Hang Hai needs to assess how container yard and logistics services can be facilitated for the new port.



A second option, a 50-hectare site next to the Long Tau River in Thanh An commune, was vetoed due to its proximity to a nature reserve and the lack of road connections. The third option is a 150-hectare natural deep-water site in Long Hoa Commune, which can receive container ships of up to 10,000 TEU.
