Vietnam’s Logistics Sector Emerging as a Leading Force in Asia

With a rapidly growing economy and a young, educated workforce, the potential for success in Vietnam is infinite. Vietnam’s favourable population distribution, strategic location in Southeast Asia, and investments in infrastructure provide investors with easy access to a large and growing market, especially in the logistics area.

The logistics industry in Vietnam offers a wide range of opportunities, including warehousing, transportation, and distribution, as well as value-added services such as packaging and customization. With a bottom-heavy population of over 97 million people, a median age of 30.5 years, growing middle class and increasing consumer demand for high-quality products, Vietnam's logistics industry is poised for significant growth and is expected to achieve continuous growth due to thriving imports and exports. 

In fact, import-export trade exceeded to around US$700 billion in 2022 and is expected to have a 7% export growth rate. Vietnam also established major trade agreements, such as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), which has boosted trade and logistics in the region.

This is further pushed by the government's initiatives to improve the infrastructure and increase capabilities. The government has implemented policies to encourage foreign investment, and the country has made significant progress in improving its infrastructure, legal framework, and business environment. Vietnam's transport ministry announced the development of a 1,800-kilometre highway connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi that will significantly enhance the transportation of goods across the entire country. The government has set a target to achieve a cargo transportation capacity of 4.4 billion tons and an annual road transport capacity of moving 2.7 tons of cargo by 2030.

In summary, Vietnam's logistics industry represents a promising frontier for growth and investment. Fueled by economic prosperity, strategic positioning, and active participation in international trade agreements, the country offers a wealth of opportunities for stakeholders. With a clear commitment to infrastructure development and an expanding role in global trade, Vietnam is well on its way to becoming a pivotal player in Asia's dynamic logistics sector.
