Long An (VNA) – The Mekong Delta province of Long An has planned to set up six logistics centres to meet transportation, and export and import demands, according to the provincial Department of Industry and Trade.

The centres are also expected to help local firms improve their competitiveness, the department said.

Of the facilities, three will be located in Thanh Phu, Thanh Loi and Luong Hoa communes in Ben Luc district, with a total area of 110ha. The others are at the Binh Hiep international border gate economic zone, the My Quy Tay border gate economic zone, and the Long An international port.

The centres in Thanh Phu commune and the Long An international port in Can Giuoc district have been put into operation.

All of the centres are connected with roads, waterways and sea routes, providing transportation, logistics and goods distribution services.

Apart from the building of logistics centres, Long An has taken measures to develop a competitive, multi-model transportation sector where information-technology is optimised.

At the same time, it has worked to speed up the implementation of major transport projects to complete the transport infrastructure system connecting industrial clusters and parks with the Long An international port, thus meeting the travel and transportation needs of people and businesses./.
