Transforwarding Warehousing Joint-Stock Corp., or Transimex Saigon, on Monday started constructing a goods distribution center in Song Than 2 Industrial Park in Di An District, Binh Duong Province.
The distribution center, which will cover a total area of 18,000 square meters, will consist of a 12,000-square meter warehouse system, a parking lot for trucks and a container yard. It will be constructed in four months’ time with total investment capital of VND94 billion.
Le Duy Hiep, general director of the firm, said the fact that the center is located near industrial parks in the province as well as ports in HCMC will help shorten time and reduce costs for transporting commodities of local exporters and importers.
