Its construction, sprawling over 18.7ha, was pided into two phases at a total cost of 1.5 trillion VND (71.4 million USD).

With a 420-metre-long pier and a 253-metre-long dock for barges to handle 9 million tonnes of cargo per year, Tan Cang – Hiep Phuoc is projected to become a major trans-shipment port for goods from the southern industrial parks in Ho Chi Minh City and Mekong Delta provinces, and serve as a key shipping hub for Asian goods.

It also takes advantage of the Soai Rap channel to save transportation time and cost rather than sailing through Long Tau channel.
