Vietnam has numerous sea ports that are boarding the South China Sea. The two biggest and busiest ports are Cat Lai/Ho Chi Minh City and Haiphong Port due to their proximity to the two major cities of Vietnam, HCMC and the capital Hanoi. All other ports are 10 times smaller than those two on average, but still very effective. All the harbours of Vietnam are well equipped, with good LCL and FCL cargo services.

We can classify the harbours in three categories. The first category is the ports that are located on the north of the country:

  • Cam Pha
  • Haiphong
  • Nghe Tinh
  • Vung Ang

The second category, which includes only one port, Da Nang port, is the category of the port of Central Vietnam.
