Seaports Process 112 Million Tonnes of Cargo in Two Months

Vietnam’s seaports managed nearly 112 million tonnes of cargo during the initial two months of 2024, marking an 8% increase compared to the previous year, according to statistics from the Vietnam Maritime Administration.

Export cargo amounted to 28.68 million tonnes, reflecting an almost 8% rise year-on-year, while import cargo stood at 33.884 million tonnes, showing a 16% increase.

Concurrently, container cargo transported via seaports surpassed four million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), indicating a notable surge of 27% compared to the corresponding period last year.

Ho Chi Minh City, Ba Ria-Vung Tau, and Hai Phong emerged as the top performers in the country, with average yearly growth rates ranging from 43% to 53%.

In January alone, the volume of cargo transported through seaports witnessed a yearly surge of 43% to exceed 68.7 million tonnes, as per the data.

Last year, these ports managed 733.18 million tonnes of cargo, marking a 4% increase from the previous year, noted the administration. However, this 4% rise represents the slowest pace recorded in recent years, attributed primarily to incomplete recovery in production and trading, along with the impact of China’s “zero Covid” policy on corporate operations.

According to the master plan for Vietnam’s seaport system development for 2021-2030, with a vision extending to 2050, the administration forecasts approximately 1,422.5 million tonnes of goods passing through local seaports by 2030, including 559 million tonnes of container cargo.
