Vietnamese port launches container handling service

Vietnam's Long An International Port commenced container operations on 24 June after eight years of construction work.

Long An International Port is part of the project cluster spanning 19.35 km² in Can Giuoc District, Long An Province consisting of the 3.96-km² industrial park, 2.39-km² industrial services area, 11.45-km² urban area and most especially the 1.47-km² seaport.

The port is the flagship project of Dongtam Group’s Master Development Plan in Long An Province and was established on 24 December 2015 through a US$500 million investment by the Dong Tam Group.

When completed, Long An International Port is expected to have a total of 10 berths having a continuous length of 2,368 metres and capable of receiving vessels up to 100,000 DWT.

In the first phase, the port launches its container handling services with seven berths with the total length from the first to the seventh berth being 1,670 metres. In the next phase of development, Long An International Port will expand to 10 berths, including one berth specialising in liquid/liquefied petroleum gas, three mooring buoys, and one berth to accommodate large cruise ships.

Dongtam Group has heavily invested in the port’s warehouses and yard space of up to 1 million m², truck fleet, modern equipment, and facilities. The port has now a fleet of six STS cranes and 18 RTG cranes, manufactured and assembled by Mitsui E&S Machinery in Japan.

Dongtam Group aims to invest further in box equipment in the future aiming at 1 million TEU capacity.

On 24 June, Dongtam Group, Mitsubishi Corporation - Japan and consulting partner GreenBank, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for research, strategy consulting and service development for Long An International Port.

"It is expected that this agreement will pave the way for many opportunities for cooperation and contribute to achieving the goal of 1 million TEU by 2030," pointed out Dongtam Group, adding the port is built to provide a full range of port and logistics services including transportation, storage and warehousing among others, and will constantly expand its investments to meet operational safety standards and fully satisfy customer needs.
