(QNO) - The post-Covid-19 shift of supply chain to Vietnam is considered an opportunity to promote the development of large production areas nationwide, including Central Vietnam and Central Highlands, leading to a great demand for logistics there.
Along with containers, the amount of bulk cargo for import and export through the port has been increasing.
So, Chu Lai port (Quang Nam province) under Truong Hai International Logistics Limited Liability Company (THILOGI) has expanded bulk cargo services, facilitating the import and export, and increasing the sources of goods.
An increase of bulk cargo export and import
Asia Creative Energy Joint Stock Company has exported 130,000 tons of bulk cargo through Chu Lai port since early 2022.
All the process of registration, scheduling, loading and unloading is strictly controlled by the port, helping to speed up the progress and save businesses’ time and costs.
According to leaders of Chu Lai port, the bulk cargo imported and exported through Chu Lai port has recently increased dramatically.
The port monthly receives around 35-40 ships with over 90,000 tons of goods, mainly pellets, wood shavings, salt, soda, sand, limestone, etc.
Bulk cargo currently accounts for about 30% of the total goods through the port.
Thanks to the trend of shifting supply chains, more and more FDI enterprises have invested in Central Vietnam and Central Highlands.
Demands for the export and import of goods, including bulk cargo, has increased.
A lot of enterprises (such as Asia Creative Energy Joint Stock Company, Phu Tai, Thanh Thanh Dat, Quang Nam Paper Materials, and Sun Paper Company in Laos) are now cooperating with Chu Lai port to export and import bulk cargo.
Improvement of bulk cargo services
Bulk cargo export and import plays an important role to Chu Lai port, contributing to the diversification of goods through the port.
At present, the infrastructure of Chu Lai port has been upgraded with different logistics solutions, specialised equipment and technological applications to meet clients’ increasing demands and better the competitiveness of the port.
Besides specialised equipment, Chu Lai port is investing in building a port that can receive 50,000-ton ships, a new channel- Cua Lo with a depth of 13.2 metres.
At the same time, the port is planning to dredge Ky Ha channel to receive larger ships.
