In January alone, the volume of cargo transported through seaports saw a year-on-year increase of 43 percent to over 68.7 million tons.

Export cargo was estimated at 28.68 million tons, up nearly 8 percent year-on-year, and import cargo hit 33.884 million tons, up 16 percent.

Container cargo transported via seaports valued over four million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), surging 27 percent compared to last year's corresponding period.

HCMC, Ba Ria-Vung Tau and Hai Phong recorded the highest growth in seaport cargo transport in the country, with average yearly increases of 43-53 percent.

Last year, 733.18 million tons of cargo passed through Vietnamese ports, up 4 percent from the previous year.

Viet Nam's seaport system has 286 wharves with a total length of more than 96 kilometers and a total cargo volume of over 706 million tons. Of these, two large seaport complexes, Hai Phong and Ho Chi Minh City appeared in the rankings of 50 largest container ports in the world.

The ports will be designed to handle an estimated capacity of 40-50 million tons of goods per year in 2020-2025, receive large vessels with a weight of 50,000- 100,000 tons, 6,000-8,000 TEU ships; and upgraded to serve 100,000-ton vessels and 8,000-TEU-capacity ships since 2030.

In the master plan on Viet Nam's seaport system development for 2021-2030, with a vision to 2050, the VMA forecasts about 1,422.5 million tons of goods through local seaports by 2030, including 559 million tons of container cargo./.
