Ground breaking ceremony in Hai Phong - Vietnam

Tuesday, 17 June 2014.

The ground-breaking ceremony for C. Steinweg Bonded Logistics Hub at Dinh Vu Industrial Zone, Hai Phong City, Vietnam was held on June 17. The ceremony was attended by the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of The Netherlands H.E. Mr. Mark Rutte, a Dutch business delegation, local authorities of Hai Phong City as well as CEOs from various foreign companies in the port city.

"I'm confident that the Steinweg warehouse that will be built here will boost Hai Phong's position as a logistics hub of northern Viet Nam, and provide jobs and income for many people," said the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. "This investment shows how confident the Dutch business sector is in the future of Viet Nam. Your country is developing fast, and we want to work with you. We believe our partnership will benefit us both," he added.

"In the past year, C. Steinweg Group has consulted with existing local and international customers on this potential development and the feedback was overwhelmingly supportive. Customers believed that such a development by Steinweg would provide a welcome boost to trading activities in Hai Phong Port and further deepen its appeal as an international trading and logistics hub," said Mr Ulf Boll, global CEO of the C. Steinweg Group, at the ceremony.

According to the plan endorsed by Hai Phong Economic Zone Authority (HEZA), construction is set to start in July and the first phase of operations is expected to begin in August 2015.
