HÀ NỘI – A new international postal service centre was officially opened at the Nội Bài International Airport this morning.
It is one of the largest postal hubs in the northern region to receive and deliver international mail and packages.
The centre, built by the state-owned Vietnam Post Corporation, is spread over 2,700sqm in the Nội Bài International Airport.
“The International Postal Service Centre will improve professionalism, effectiveness and quality of Vietnam Post’s international mail service,” Vietnam Post Board of Members Chairman Đỗ Ngọc Bình said at the opening ceremony.
Besides the newly opened postal centre, Vietnam Post already has plans to build another mail sorting facility in Hải Bối Commune, adjacent to the Nội Bài airport. It is expected to begin operations in early 2018.
Vietnam Post also aims to set up two postal facilities close to the two airports in the central and the southern regions by 2020. One facility will be built at the Hiệp Phước Industrial Park which is located between the future Long Thành International Airport and the Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta. The other 5ha-centre will be constructed at the Hòa Khánh Industrial Park, some 10km from Đà Nẵng International Airport and can be linked by road to the neighbouring Central Highlands region.
“Vietnam Post will build another 23 provincial level mail sorting facilities and invest further in equipment to mechanize all postal delivery processes by 2018,” Bình said. – VNS
