On August 12, export-import activities were bustling at Tan Cang-Cat Lai Port. Tran Luu Tuong, a staff focusing on seafood export-import oin District 8, said that the port is rather quick in handling procedures with a steady flow of container vehicles going in and out.
Truong Tan Loc, marketing manager of Saigon Newport Corporation, said that the port has taken a number of measures, including accelerating the release of containers and increasing the capacity of container yards inside and outside the port, among others.
Early this month, the port had to temporarily stop receiving imported goods from enterprises that were suspending operations due to COVID-19 as well as commodities that occupied large yard capacity as the port was overwhelmed with container backlogs.
Tan Cang Cat Lai Port now holds over 90 per cent of the container market share in the south.
