Royal Cargo Vietnam is the official logistics service provider of all the medical and hospital equipment donated by the French government to Vietnam’s Can Tho General Hospital.
As the nominated logistics company by a well-established firm, Royal Cargo has been tasked to carefully handle the trucking, barging from Ho Chi Minh port to Can Tho, and delivery of medical equipment with an approximate weight of 400 tonnes.
“These are very important and sensitive shipment, ensuring the safety and security of these machines until it reaches Can Tho Hospital is our main priority,” said General Director for Royal Cargo Vietnam, Mr. Tuan Van Nguyen. He also added that a crane lifted large-size equipment that did not fit the elevator, making the movement more challenging. “We are happy that we have successfully delivered the initial batch of shipment safe and sound, we’re excited to transport the upcoming shipments from the Official Development Assistance (ODA) of the French Government.”
The project is part of the Advanced Health Equipment package donated by France’s ODA that aims to equip Can Tho Hospital with over 3,000 advanced machine including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner, computerized tomography scanner, Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) machine, and dialysis machines. After completing the project, Can Tho General Hospital is expected to become the specialized medical centre for the entire Mekong Delta Region.
