US logistics company C.H. Robinson has opened a fully owned global forwarding office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
C.H. Robinson’s increasing involvement in the Vietnam market is part of the company’s aggressive plan to offer expertise on both a local and global scale in key markets across the world.
Vietnam represents a growing economy with significant opportunity for experts in the field of transportation logistics, with Ho Chi Minh City handling about 70 per cent of the country’s total cargo volume.
“Adding an office in Vietnam gives our Asia network the opportunity to further enhance our growth in this part of the world,” said Andy Wang, President of C.H. Robinson, Asia.
In addition to offering traditional global forwarding services such as ocean, air, and consolidation, C.H. Robinson will provide customers with domestic supply chain services including surface transportation, warehousing and customs clearance from the new Vietnam office.
“We are optimistic about future growth in Vietnam and increasing the breadth of services we are able to offer our customers in this region,” said Tony Tan, Regional Manager for Southeast Asia at C.H. Robinson.
The new office will be managed by Roy Chau, who has served as the sales and marketing manager for C.H. Robinson over the past six years.
