Saigon Newport Corporation Introduces Solutions for Connecting and Optimizing the Supply Chain of the Vietnam - Canada Logistics Route

On the morning of November 15, 2023, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce coordinated with the Consulate General of Canada in Ho Chi Minh City, Canadian National Railway Company (CN), Port of Montreal, Saigon Newport Corporation, Vietnam Logistics Association (VLA) and Vietnam Trade Office in Canada jointly organized the logistics event to the Canadian market for the first time in Ho Chi Minh City.

As the world's 10th largest economy in terms of GDP, 12th in exports, and 13th in imports in 2019, Canada has become a potential trade partner of Vietnam. Currently, Vietnam is Canada's leading trading partner in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Canada's 6th largest trading partner in the group of 40 Indo-Pacific countries.
To support the development of bilateral trade between Canada and Vietnam, the conference "Canadian Gateway Advantage: Canadian Logistics Event - Vietnam" was held. The occasion serves as a forum for discussing Canada's benefits and logistical prowess for Vietnamese import-export and logistics firms. Vietnamese companies will also have the chance to network directly with key players in the Canadian supply chain, like the Port of Montreal and the Canadian National Railway Company, thanks to this event.
The supply chain, according to Ms. Annie Dube, the Consul General of Canada in Ho Chi Minh City, is becoming more and more significant in today's interconnected world. It provides the framework for the economic development and connectivity of nations like Vietnam and Canada by facilitating trade and the delivery of necessities to consumers. Since the railway system and harbor are Canada's lifelines, Ms. Annie Dube thinks that by holding this conference, Vietnamese firms would
have a clearer understanding of the benefits of Canadian logistics commerce involving North America and Vietnam

At this event, Mr. Truong Tan Loc, Director of Marketing - representative of Saigon Newport Corporation, gave a presentation on how to connect and optimize the logistics supply chain between Vietnam and Canada from SNP. With the advantage of a port-logistics ecosystem stretching across the country, SNP's deep-water ports such as the Cai Mep Thi Vai regional deep-water port system (TCIT, TCTT, TCTT), the regional HICT deep-water port Lach Huyen, Hai Phong has been the destination of many service routes connecting directly to Canada such as route PN2 connecting to the Port of Vancouver, EC4 connecting to the Port of Halifax.

Global shipping lines are already establishing a trend of larger ships to optimize international logistics and maximize time. As a result, Vietnam's deep-water ports will play an increasingly important role. SNP remains committed to investing continuously and developing methods to make the port and logistics ecosystem more intelligent, deeply linked, sustainable, and efficient to keep up with global supply chain trends and developments.
Following the workshop, the Canadian delegation—which included delegates from the Port of Montreal, the Consulate General of Canada, and the Cancham Association—continued to visit and work at Cat Lai Port to continue discussing future directions for development and cooperation between Canada's and Vietnam's top seaport businesses. Following this discussion and meeting, SNP and the Port of Montreal will go on working to create further logistics plans and approaches and eventually sign an MOU to reduce expenses. fr
