Following governmental policies on equitization of state-owned enterprises to improve business efficiency, the NoiBai Cargo Terminal Services., JSC (NCTS) was established in 2005 based on the capital of three main shareholders - the Vietnam Airlines Corporation, the Transport and Chartering Corporation (Vietfach) and the NoiBai Aviation Services JSC (NASCO).
