HCMC – The Mekong Delta province of Long An has devised ambitious plans to establish 10 logistics centers by 2030 to fuel economic growth within the southeastern and Mekong Delta regions.
To achieve this goal, the province is centering on logistics infrastructure development, especially roads, warehouses, and hi-tech logistics solutions.
These 10 logistics centers are planned to be strategically located in the districts of Can Giuoc, Ben Luc, Chau Thanh, Can Duoc, Duc Hue, Tan Tru, and Kien Tuong.
The Long An International Port, occupying a sprawling 147-hectare area in Can Giuoc, is envisioned to serve as a comprehensive sea port service complex. It will feature a range of auxiliary facilities, including high-quality warehouses, to support trade activities within the port, both inbound and outbound.
In addition to these developments, the province is focused on enhancing the transportation network by creating intersections that link national-level and provincial-level traffic infrastructure. It also plans to add more entrances and exits along the Eastern North-South Expressway in Ben Luc and Thu Thua districts, aiming to improve inter-regional traffic connectivity and drive socio-economic development.
Simultaneously, Long An aims to renovate 53 existing provincial roads, construct 29 new provincial roads, and upgrade five waterway transport routes.
The province also has plans to construct and upgrade 18 cargo ports, designed to handle both general and bulk cargo vessels with tonnages ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 tons. Additionally, it will establish 17 specialized ports, including petroleum terminals and ports catering to various factories and industrial parks, capable of handling ships ranging from 200 to 5,000 tons.
Long An’s ambitious agenda also includes the development of 14 passenger ports aligned with passenger transportation routes in line with the province’s urban planning initiatives.
Two dry ports, Ben Luc and Tan Lap, are set to be established in Ben Luc and Thu Thua districts. Each dry port will cover an area of 10 to 15 hectares and have a capacity of 150,000 TEUs.
