With quality services and flexible policies, Saigon Newport Corporation has attracted more services from shipping lines and has been trusted and chosen by many customers as the port of choice.
The results is quite outstanding. The throughput volume in Tan Cang – Cat Lai Terminal in November has increased 11,5.%. In 2012, Tan Cang – Cat Lai’s market share was 83% of Ho Chi Minh City container import – export throughput, and in 2013, its market share rises to 85%. The growth in both throughput volume and market share is the result of the right strategies from the Communist Party Committee, Board of Directors as well as the will and determination of the employees in the affirmation and development of the corporation’s brand name and reputation as the leading container operator in Vietnam.
