Export activities in Vietnam as well as local and international trade have been developing, leading to increasing demand of logistics. Businesses should improve their awareness of the service to improve export competitiveness, they said.
A synchronous supply chain should be built to bring more efficiency in production and trading as it plays an important role in growth model reform and the economy’s restructuring, they added.
The Vietnam Logistics Research and Development Institute has proposed exporters to contact and negotiate with the service’s potential providers to build a transport plan suitable with their financial and production activities.
