HCMC – The southern province of Binh Duong has announced plans to construct a river port as a transshipment hub for containers destined for HCMC and Ba Ria-Vung Tau.

The An Tay river port project, which has received approval from the Binh Duong authorities, will help improve the waterway logistics system, connecting the inland province of Binh Duong with deep-water ports like Cai Mep port in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province and Cat Lai port in HCMC.

The 100-hectare project will be located near the Saigon River in the southern An Tay Commune, Ben Cat Town, Binh Duong Province. It is expected to contribute to the development of a comprehensive service network with multimodal transport capabilities within the province.

The estimated cost of the project is around VND2,279 billion, including for compensation, site clearance, and resettlement amounting to VND453 billion. The construction of the port is scheduled to be completed within four years.

It would be able to handle container vessels of 3,000 DWT for inland waterway transportation along the Saigon River.

The An Tay river port will play a vital role in transporting cargo from Tay Ninh, Binh Phuoc, and Tay Nguyen provinces, connecting various industrial parks and alleviating road traffic congestion in HCMC.
