Eight months from the ground breaking ceremony held in December last year, Vietnam SuperPort, a one-of-a-kind smart logistics infrastructure project that is expected to speed up logistics in Asean, is seeing steady progress after its future operator T&Y SuperPort Vinh Phuc Stock Company (T&Y) signed MoUs with Vietnam’s state-owned transport operators.
Vietnam Airlines has come on board to help boost air transport and logistical support for the future SuperPort, becoming the first airline secured by T&Y to operate in the facility.
Headquartered in Long Bien District of Hanoi, the carrier has strategic hubs that run through the two main airports in Vietnam: Noi Bai International Airport in the north and Tan Son Nhat International Airport in the south.
T&Y and Vietnam Airlines plan to explore ways to bolster Noi Bai International Airport’s capabilities as an export hub to meet the increase in manufacturing and assembling operations in Vietnam. The airport is the largest in the country for cargo transport and second in terms of passenger traffic.
The two parties also plan to consolidate offerings and leverage on their combined networks to promote SuperPort facilities to enhance multimodal cargo transportation in Vietnam. Slated for completion by 2025, as a game changer to meet the future of logistics and supply chain demand to establish seamless connectivity across ASEAN.
Completing the multimodal chain by rail, T&Y, a joint venture between T&T Group Vietnam and YCH Group Singapore, also signed a collaborative MoU with railway operator VNR. YCH Group said the convergence of rail and air transport nodes in Vietnam SuperPort, located in the province of Vinh Phuc near Hanoir, will strengthen supply chain resiliency with increased options to mitigate disruptions where the movement of goods will continue should either one of the options is affected.
