Vinalines tipped to become leading maritime firm

Vinalines will be responsible for developing some ports at Lach Huyen International Port complex, invested by Haiphong Port Company Limited, to build a Haiphong International Gateway Seaport in 2017-2020. Lien Chieu Port in Danang will be developed by Danang Port Joint Stock Company in the 2017-2024. The Government has asked Vinalines to develop a specialized ship fleet and decommission old vessels too.

Vinalines is required to boost investments in inland container depots (ICDs), logistics centers, and goods distribution centers in Lach Huyen (Haiphong), Hanoi, Danang, Can Tho, HCMC, Bac Ninh, Hau Giang, Gia Lai, Binh Duong, and Dong Nai provinces.

Vinalines has proposed building a logistics center in Phu Dong port on Duong river in Gia Lam District, Hanoi to gather cargo from industrial zones in Hanoi, Bac Ninh, Bac Giang, Vinh Phuc, Phu Tho, Hung Yen, and Ha Nam by water. Cargo will then be transferred from ICDs to seaports for export. It will also serve import demands, have a riverfront length of 1,200m and will be expanded on an area of 40-50 hectares in 2030.
