Tân Cảng - Cát Lái Port in HCM City’s newly created Thủ Đức city will temporarily stop accepting imports by businesses that have suspended production so that it can clear a huge backlog of containers that have piled up.
Many container shipping lines have announced further increases in transportation fees starting from late May, which was pushing import-export companies into a lot of difficulty.
Deep-sea port SP-SSA International Terminal said it recently received a 15,000-TEU container vessel, its biggest ever.
The provincial People's Committee told the local transport department and other departments, sectors and localities in a working session on Monday to review all port and logistics projects.
The Ministry of Transport has approved the addition of a weather surveillance radar station to the detailed plan to expand HCM City’s Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport to both the north and south to serve 50 million passengers per year by 2030.
Port operator SP-SSA International Terminal on Friday said the first ship from Petra, a new vessel service, has berthed at the Cái Mép Thị Vải Port in the southern province of Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu.
Development of major ports and port clusters will get priority in the new master plan for the country’s port system for 2021-2030, Deputy Minister of Transport Nguyễn Nhật has said.
