LONG AN — The Mekong Delta province of Long An plans to set up six logistics centres to meet transportation, and export and import demands, according to the provincial Department of Industry and Trade.
The centres are also expected to help local firms improve their competitiveness, the department said.
Of the facilities, three will be located in Thanh Phú, Thạnh Lợi and Lương Hòa communes in Bến Lức District, with a total area of 110ha. The others are at the Bình Hiệp international border gate economic zone, the Mỹ Quý Tây border gate economic zone, and the Long An international port.
The centres in Thanh Phú Commune and the Long An international port in Cần Giuộc District have been put into operation.
All of the centres are connected to roads, waterways and sea routes, providing transportation, logistics and goods distribution services.
Apart from the building of logistics centres, Long An has taken measures to develop a competitive, multi-model transportation sector where information-technology is optimised.
At the same time, it has worked to speed up the implementation of major transport projects to complete the transport infrastructure system connecting industrial clusters and parks with the Long An international port, thus meeting the travel and transportation needs of people and businesses. VNS
