CH Robinson has opened a global forwarding office in Ho Chi Minh City, where it will offer ocean, air and consolidation services, as well as additional functions.
The office will allow it to take advantage of the growing Vietnamese market. Ho Chi Minh City is responsible for the handling of approximately 70 per cent of Vietnamese cargo.
Andy Wang, president of CH Robinson Asia, said: “Vietnam is one of the fastest growing Asian economies. Adding an office in Vietnam gives our Asia network the opportunity to further enhance our growth in this part of the world.”
In addition to offering traditional global forwarding services, CH Robinson will provide customers with domestic supply chain services including surface transport, warehousing, and customs clearance from the new Vietnam office.
Tony Tan, regional manager for Southeast Asia at CH Robinson, said: “CH Robinson continues to expand and build its business in various parts of the world to meet the demands of its customers. We are optimistic about future growth in Vietnam and increasing the breadth of services we are able to offer our customers in this region.”
The new office will be managed by Roy Chau, who has served as the sales and marketing manager for CH Robinson over the past six years.
