DONG NAI (VNS) — Dong Nai Port in the southern province of Dong Nai hopes to be able to handle 20 million tonnes of goods a year by 2020, four times the current capacity.
The port is expected to be one of the leaders in the country in terms of goods handling capacity, said the director of Dong Nai Port JSC, Nguyen Thi Bach Mai.
The port system includes Long Binh Tan terminal on the Dong Nai River and Go Dau ‘A' and Go Dau ‘B' terminals on the Thi Vai River, which are earmarked for expansion.
The terminals are close to major seaports in HCM City and southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province as well as central industrial parks. The port is improving its service because of fierce competition from other ports in southern Binh Duong Province and HCM City.
Dong Nai port has invested more than VND200 billion (US$9.2 million) to build a wharf capable of handling 30,000 tonnes of goods per year at Go Dau terminal. — VNS
