Saigon Premier Container Terminal – SPCT, located along the western shore of the Soai Rap River on the 40 hectares Hiep Phuoc Industrial Park and 16km from Ho Chi Minh City center, is a state-of-the-art facility which began operations in October 2009, just two years after construction began in September 2007.
Phase I of the development has 2 berths and storage capacity for up to 15,000 TEU (twenty foot equivalent container units) at a time, including 650 refrigerated container slots.
The continued development of the infrastructure by government authorities includes dredging of the Soai Rap river to a depth of 9.5m by early 2011, allowing SPCT to serve vessels with a nominal capacity of up to 5,000 TEU . SPCT will then be able to serve both the intra-asia market and deep sea trades, further reducing logistical cost for Vietnamese exporters and importers.
The project is an 80:20 joint venture between DP World (UAE) and the Tan Thuan Industrial Promotion Company (IPC) - Vietnamese state-owned company.
It is anticipated that the SPCT development will prove to be a successful formula for additional container terminal developments between DP World and IPC in Hiep Phuoc Industrial Zone and reinforce the Hiep Phuoc area as the new urban and logistics hub for Ho Chi Minh City in line with the city government SEA strategy .
SPCT looks forward to delivering the highest levels of customer service to all our valued clients. We look forward to welcoming customers to our new facilities.
