Insights on Freight Forwarding
In Vietnam, freight forwarding activities have been increasing since the federal government implemented the open-door policy to join the free-trade agreement. Traditional forwarding activities include two arrays, which include companies engaged in the delivery of containers, such as Gemadept, Hai Min Corporation, and SoTrans. CFS (Container Freight Station) service/consolidation services are dominated by foreign companies, who mainly dominate the market. A series of trade agreements signed by Vietnam over the past two years turned out to be a fruitful decision for Vietnamese trade, which increased the trade flow in the country. Presently, around 1,300 logistics firms are active in Vietnam, including multinational firms.
Majority of the local firms are operating on a small- and medium-scale for SMEs. Large local logistics enterprises from Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi are also active players in the market. There are some large domestic firms, like Transimex Saigon Corporation, Sai Gon Newport Corporation, Gemadept Corporation, and Transport, and Chartering Corporation (VIETFRACHT), which are present in the market and operate as 3PL service providers.
In 2017, Trinity Logistics USA and Etihad Airways collaborated to operate a 777F freighter between Vietnam’s Hanoi International Airport (HAN) and Ohio’s Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK). This move represents that for the first time airports have been directly connected, making the transfer of goods between the two countries faster than ever.
Insights on Warehousing
Warehousing in Vietnam can be divided into two major segments, namely, dry goods storage warehouse and cold storage. Operation of the storage system is quite simple, with the goal to preserve goods effectively and optimize inventory costs. Major players in the warehouse management business include BS Logistics, Sotrans, Transimex, Gemadept, U&I Logistics, Vinafco Draco Seaborne, BK Logistics, ALS (Aviation Logistics Corporation), and ITL (IndoTrans Logistics Corporation). The big suppliers of commercial cold storage are mainly concentrated in the southern areas of Vietnam, due to the growing demand for storage of seafood for export. Some of the prominent local providers are Hoang Lai, Hung Vuong, SATRA, and Phan Duy. In particular, the two companies, Hung Vuong and SATRA, are part of the first few companies to implement cold storage solutions. Initially, their capability was focused on their needs but have now integrated backward as a provider for other enterprises.
There are large investments being made in the cold storage sector in Vietnam. A recent example is the collaborative investment project between Mekong Group's Gemadept and the Minh Phu Seafood group, with a capacity of 50,000 metric ton. The facility was built in the Industrial Park Song Hau, Hau Giang province, with a total investment of USD 46.1 million.
