FACTS OF VIETNAM'S LOGISTIC

According to a report by HKTDC Research, Vietnam,situated to the southeast of the Indochinese peninsula and with a 3,200km coastline, depends heavily on sea freight transportation for its external trade. Since 2007, Vietnam’s container port throughput has been expanding at a compound annual growth rate of 12.5%, reaching 8.1 million TEUs in 2013 (double the volume seen in 2007).

Driven by exports from foreign-invested manufacturers and by the import of intermediate and capital goods, Vietnam’s external trade again flourished in 2014, with exports and imports growing by 14% and 12%, respectively.

A recent report from the Vietnam Logistics Business Association said that the sector recorded average growth of 20 to 24 percent each year despite the outsourcing logistics market only accounting for 3 to 4 percent of total GDP. In 2014 and 2015, 80 percent of enterprises in the sector reached or exceeded their annual plans. Seventy percent of logistics enterprises recorded profits while only 1 percent went bankrupt; much less than in other industries. A number of large firms, such as SNP, Gemadept, Vinafco, Transimex Saigon, Vinafreight, Viconship, Vietfracht, and Sotrans were viewed as operating in a very professional manner.

Figures from the Vietnam Logistics Business Association also show that the average charter capital of logistics companies is about VND4-6 billion ($180,000- $270,000); three or four times higher than in 2007. The number of small and medium-sized enterprises account for 72 percent, while the remainder are large enterprises with charter capital of more than VND20 billion ($890,000).

The number of enterprises using integrated logistics services providers or a third-party logistics provider (3PL) has grown over recent years and now account for 15 to 20 percent. The sector has continued to embrace information technology, with 10 percent of enterprises being equipped with Enterprise Resource Planning systems, 17 percent using Electronic Data Interchange, and most using customs and accounting software.

In transport, 19 percent of enterprises use transportation management systems and 29 percent use GPS. Meanwhile, in warehousing, nearly 17 percent use bar code systems and warehouse management software. Vietnam’s logistics industry has built trust with not only domestic but also international customers, leveraging local advantages and cooperating with foreign firms to integrate logistics activities.
