The HITC, a joint venture between Saigon New Port and Japan’s Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL), Wan Hai Lines (WHL) of Taiwan (China), and Japan’s Itochu Corporation (ITO), is the first deep-water port in the north of Vietnam. 

With two 750m-long wharves, the HITC is capable of receiving vessels up to 14,000 TEU. The goods output through the port is estimated at 1.1 million TEU per year.

Construction of the 45-hectare port began on May 12, 2016 with a total investment of 321 million USD.

According to the Saigon New Port, the HITC has a favourable location as it connects most of inland waterways and coastal roads to Quang Ninh and northern provinces. It also links to feeder terminals New Port 128, New Port 189, ICD New Port – Hai Phong and ICD New Port Ha Nam as well as the northern and central key economic zones and southwestern China.
