Hanoi to invest in construction of Phu Dong Port
The port is expected to handle the North’s transportation demand and help reduce logistics costs and pollution.
Hanoi plans to build Phu Dong container port in Gia Lam District with the capacity of handling 120,000 TEUs, equivalent to 1.5 million tons per year once completed. By 2030, it is designed to handle 3 million tons a year.
This is the latest detailed planning of the Phu Dong Port, in Co Bi and Dang Xa communes, Gia Lam District, signed by Vice Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Duong Duc Tuan.

In terms of scale, Phu Dong port includes four container handlers, three reach-stackers handling cement, and another two for other purposes. The container yard is 66,360sq.m while a cargo yard is nearly 66,600sq.m.
According to the detailed planning, the number of reach-stackers will double compared with the city's approved transport plan. They will be used for the loading and unloading of cement and other construction materials.
The space arrangement, architecture, and landscape will be carried out according to the construction planning for the Red and Thai Binh rivers dyke, which has been approved by the Prime Minister.
The goal of the project is to materialize the transportation planning of Hanoi capital until 2030, with a vision to 2050, which has been approved by the Prime Minister and the detailed planning of the inland waterway port system in the North to 2020 and orientation to 2030 which has been approved by the Ministry of Transport.
