HÀ NỘI — Deputy Prime Minister Trương Hòa Bình on Sunday launched construction on Hà Nội’s inland clearance depot, which will be the largest one in the capital.
The construction of the 47.2ha depot will be divided into two stages, with the first one covering 19.2ha and the second one covering 28ha in Gia Lâm District’s Cổ Bi Commune.
The first stage, costing nearly VNĐ782 billion (US$35.5 million), is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2019. Once completed, it will be capable of handling 380,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs).
The second stage, which costs VNĐ1.78 trillion ($81 million), is designed to handle 760,000 TEUs annually once it is completed in the fourth quarter of 2020.
The project is funded by Hanel One-member Co Ltd and Láng Hạ Tower Co Ltd.
The depot will provide hi-tech logistics, support, storage and distributions services for economic and industrial zones in the east of Hà Nội and adjacent provinces, said General Director of Hanel Nguyễn Quốc Bình.
The Cổ Bi Inland Clearance Depot will be situated in a central location between national highways 1 and 5. It will offer handling and storage services to facilitate import and export activities of enterprises in Hà Nội and other cities and provinces in the North before transporting the goods to international borders and sea ports in Hải Phòng, Quảng Ninh, Lạng Sơn and Lào Cai. — VNS
