Long An International Port is a crucial project that will attract further investment in Long An province. The port is expected to offer huge support to companies in the Mekong Delta as a centre for the import and export of goods in the southern region. Therefore, Long An province aims to transform this international port into an ideal destination for investors.
The port is designed as a harmonious combination of a seaport service complex with an industrial park, a service zone, an urban area, and other projects. The port is expected to add value to customers and contribute to the formation of a multi-purpose and modern seaport city complex.
The development of the port is on the right track amidst the rising global demand to strengthen supply chain resilience, boost logistics automation, and last-mile delivery. The port also features a container bus shuttle which will bring practical value to businesses in the area by reducing logistics and product costs while increasing competitiveness and global integration.
