Hanoi to build VN's largest inland depot
Vns/Hanoitimes 13:31, 2015/02/03
The Hanoi People`s Committee has approved a proposal to build the country`s largest inland container depot (ICD) in Duc Thuong Commune, Hoai Duc District, west of the capital.

The committee's decision allows the State-owned International Investment Trade and Service Group (Interserco) to invest in the construction of the depot, which will cover 18.2ha of land in what is now mostly a rice-cultivation area.

The main construction area spans 64,085sq.m, including a six-storey customs office and a six-storey operations office, warehouses, a bonded warehouse, and an inspection area among other additions to the technical infrastructure.


The total investment of the project is estimated to be VND1.6 trillion (US$75.1 million), with 20% contributed by Interserco and the other 80% coming from other sources.

Interserco plans to begin construction this year and is expected to finish in the third quarter of 2017.

The construction will replace the 52,000sq.m My Dinh ICD, currently the largest ICD, on Pham Hung Road in the south of Hanoi, which connects the northern portal city of Haiphong with International Noi Bai Airport and Huu Nghi border gate, effectively connecting Vietnam with China in Lang Son Province.

The My Dinh ICD offers warehouses, standard facilities and infrastructure, customs clearance, and global freight management. It also has expertise with import-export procedures, packing, loading and unloading services and warehousing and distribution, as well as cross-border logistics solutions and duty-free goods services.

Interserco claimed it had decided to expand the service and move the depot to avoid traffic congestion in urban areas in light of the growing demand for transportation and logistics services.

Last year, the local media reported that the Hanoi Customs Department had achieved a total export and import turnover of  US$18.54 billion, an increase of 16.6% over 2013, adding that My Dinh ICD had contributed strongly to the result.
