With a strategic location and diverse development potential, the Southeast region has always received attention from government and enterprises. With an area of 9% and a population of 20% of the country, the Southeast region has contributed more than 30% to the national GDP and more than 32% of the country's export turnover. The concentration of resources and enterprises here has created an incredible economic potential. However, to maintain and promote this growth, developing a logistics system is essential.

With a favorable geographical position, the Southeast is located in the center of important traffic routes, connecting borders and international seaports. The presence of a gateway seaport, typically large ports operated and exploited by SNP, such as Tan Cang Cat Lai - Ho Chi Minh City area, TCIT, TCCT, TCTT terminals - Cai Mep - Thi Vai deep-water port area, and the ecosystem of logistics facilities, have contributed to facilitating import-export activities and international trade for the region.

This not only helps increase freight capacity, but also creates many new trade opportunities for the Southeast region. In particular, enhancing and optimizing port operations in the Cai Mep - Thi Vai area will help meet the trend of increasing the world's large tonnage fleet, and increasing the volume of imports and exports of goods in the area.
  • Develop potential, improve logistics capacity efficiency: In addition to strengthening the capacity of the seaport system, SNP is a pioneer in providing flexible and sustainable logistics solutions and a barge system aimed at green transportation and ICDs and depots in neighboring provinces and cities.
