Currently, about 90% of the Mekong Delta rice output is exported through ports in HCMC and Cai Mep. Rice products are packed into containers and transported by barges provided by Tan Cang Waterway Transport (unit of the SNP system), optimizing transportation means and providing end-to-end logistics solutions, saving time and costs for enterprises. Recently, SNP has collaborated with shipping companies and Maersk, the pioneering shipping company opening codes, to bring empty containers to Mekong Delta ports to directly supply empty containers to customers at TC Cai Cui terminal, TC Thot Not terminal, TC Sa Dec terminal, TC Cao Lanh terminal, and TC Giao Long terminal.

The SNP system's ports in the Mekong Delta region are expected to develop into a container'marketplace, attracting domestic and foreign fleets, facilitating inland container transportation and international import-export goods, significantly contributing to developing logistics centers in the Mekong Delta region.

In the context of economic challenges, the Vietnam International Rice Industry Festival in Hau Giang 2023 is a significant event that affirms the sustainable development of Vietnam's rice exports. With the mission of connecting goods circulation and contributing to building and protecting the Fatherland, Saigon Newport leads logistics solutions to facilitate exports for enterprises in the Mekong Delta region, and contributes to boosting Vietnam's import-export activities."
