Saigon Newport is located on the Saigon River three or four miles north of the Saigon port and just south of the main bridge for highway 1A. Construction of Newport started in 1966 and took fifteen months to complete on an area of approximately one hundred acres of land that had once been part rice-paddy and a swampy, mangrove-covered area, which at high tide was covered by water. Great quantities of rock and sand were brought in by barge and truck for fill. One of these berths would be able to handle roll-on and roll-off ships. Another draft would be able to handle container ships plus facilities to include two ramps for landing LST's, a wharf to handle up to seven barges, and a landing craft ramp. There would be warehouses and open storage behind each pier. In April of 1967 the first deep draft vessel would be discharged at Newport. The first container ship to unload at Newport would not be until October, 1967.
