Currently, there are 42 routes of public maritime routes into the national port with a total length of 935.9 km and 10 channels of specialized ports. The longest channel is Dinh An - Can Tho channel about 130.6 km, the shortest channel is 0.55km long, the channel to Sa Dec port, Dong Thap province (from the confluence of Tien river). The channel for large tonnage vessels to enter the Hau River (via Off channel) with a total length of 46.5km has been completed and put into operation to meet 10,000 DWT full-load ships and 20,000 DWT ships to reduce direct load to regional ports. The Vietnamese seaport system basically satisfies the requirements of rotation of goods transported by sea, positively serving socio-economic development in coastal areas and the whole country.
