HCM CITY (VNS) — The Sai Gon New Port Corporation inaugurated the Tan Cang – Hiep Phuoc Port in HCM City's Nha Be District yesterday, six months ahead of schedule.

Considered an extension of the Tan Cang – Cat Lai Port, the new terminal is expected to play an important role in HCM City and its surroundings, where import-export activities are expanding.

Located at a point where the city, Mekong Delta provinces, the East Sea and many industrial zones converge, it is set to be a warehouse for the delta and city industrial zones.

According to the corporation, the terminal, which is on the Soai Rap River, can accommodate fully-loaded 50,000DWT vessels and semi-loaded 70,000DWT vessels with its robust infrastructure that includes a 420m wharf, a 253m pier for barges and a 17ha warehouse.

Since it began its first phase late last year, the port has become a top choice for importers and exporters south of the city and in the delta. — VNS
