Depot to provide hi-tech logistics, support and storage and distributions services for capital and surrounding provinces.
On May 15 the Hanoi People’s Committee began construction of a inland customs clearance depot in the capital's Gia Lam district.
Construction of the 47.2 ha depot will be divided into two phases, with the first covering 19.2 ha and the second 28 ha.
The project has total investment of VND2.5 trillion ($114.8 million), the first phase of which will cost nearly VND780 billion ($35.5 million) and is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2017. Once completed it will be capable of handling 380,000 TEUs.
The second phase, costing VND1.78 trillion ($81 million), will allow for the handling of 760,000 TEUs annually once completed in the fourth quarter of 2021.
According to the Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee, Mr. Nguyen Duc Chung, this is the largest inland customs clearance depot in the north. The depot will provide inland clearance points and storage and distribution services for economic and industrial zones in the east of Hanoi and nearby provinces.
