The seafood industry business group wants collection of port fees in HCMC delayed until year end since exporters still feel the pinch from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) petitioned for this in a communication to the Ministry of Justice.

The city plans to start collecting the port fees from July 1, but VASEP said the fees would increase the pressure on already embattled exporters, who have to pay billions of dong (VND1 billion = $43,300) to ports.

For instance, a firm in Khanh Hoa Province that ships 3,000 containers through Cat Lai Port in HCMC will have to pay fees of around VND3 billion on top of VND7.5 billion in highway tolls.

For goods that are imported for re-export, the fee starts at VND15,000 per ton and goes up to VND4.4 million ($190.37) for a 40-foot container.

Regarding imported and exported goods, the lowest fee is VND30,000 per ton and highest is VND1.1 million for a 40-foot container.
