HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Finance will reduce tolls for trucks and containers on National Highway 1 by between 10 and 14 per cent.
The move aims to help relieve difficulties for transport companies in accordance with a Government resolution on supporting enterprises.
From September 10, trucks with capacity of 10-18 tonnes and 20-foot container trucks will pay VNĐ120,000 (US$5.4) instead of VND140,000 ($6.3) per trip when using national highway 1 in the central provinces of Quảng Bình, Quảng Trị, Quảng Nam and Bình Định.
Trucks with over 18 tonnes of load and 40-feet container trucks will pay VNĐ180,000 (US$8) per trip instead of VNĐ 200,000 ($9).
The lower toll will also be applied for those who use monthly pre-paid tolls and three-month pre-paid tolls from October.
In July, the same toll reduction was introduced by the ministry for containers and trucks with loads over 10 tonnes at two toll booths on National Highway 1 in Bình Định and Quảng Ngãi. — VNS
