Ocean Freight to Vietnam

With a population of 96 million people, Vietnam is one of the most densely inhabited countries in Southeast Asia. Vietnam is bordered on the north by China, and on the west by Laos and Cambodia.

Through the Gulf of Thailand, Vietnam shares a border with Thailand. The East and South China Seas are where Vietnam’s major marine trade activity takes place.

For numerous decades, the Vietnamese economy was plagued by wars caused by Chinese intrusion in the medieval era and subsequently French colonization in the late 18th century.

During the Indochina War, the French tried to regain their position in Vietnam but were defeated.

Later, the country was divided into two groups, one sponsored by China and the Soviet Union in the north and the other by the United States in the south, resulting in many years of conflict.

Vietnam became one of the major emerging economies in Southeast Asia during the twentieth century. The country is primarily reliant on agriculture and agricultural goods, while the government’s recent reformative policies are increasing import and export. Bauxite reserves in Central Vietnam are utilized to produce aluminum.

Broadcasting Equipment, Mobile phones, Integrated Circuits, Linen Footwear, and Office Industrial Machinery are among Vietnam’s main exports, with the majority going to the United States, China, Japan, South Korea, and Hong Kong.

Integrated Circuits, Telephones, Memory Chips, Light Rubberized Ribbed Fabric, and Telecommunication Accessories are among Vietnam’s major imports, with most coming from China, South Korea, Chinese Taipei, Japan, and Thailand.

FCL & LCL Sea Shipping to Vietnam

FCL stands for ‘Full Container Load,’ and it refers to a container that is only used by one consignee. In international shipping, an FCL refers to a single container reserved only for the transportation of the shipper’s goods. The shipper is not required to share the container with other shippers’ cargo. This improves cargo safety and streamlines the management of ocean freight transportation.

Less than Container Load, or LCL, is used when the exporter does not need to book a full container since the goods do not require that much room. An LCL container is used for smaller shipments that need to be shipped cheaply and in a time-sensitive way.

Major Sea Ports in Vietnam
01 -
Hai Phong Port

The Hai Phong port is one of Northern Vietnam’s largest and most important seaports. Although it was constructed by French conquerors in the late 1800s, it has recently been renovated to improve traffic flow. It is also one of Southeast Asia’s most modern seaports, having excellent navigation and networking capabilities.

The Red River Delta, which is an important site for trade and international affairs, lies adjacent to Hai Phong city. This city is a busy business hub due to its closeness to the China border and great connectivity with the main northern towns of Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho, and Da Nang.

The city of Hai Phong has rail, road, aviation, inland canal, and ocean connections. The Hai Phong port can receive and store 10 million metric tons of cargo each year. 40,000 DWT and 700 DWT are the smallest and largest vessels that may enter, respectively. The Hai Phong Port has an average channel depth of 8.5 meters and a total wharf length of 3567 meters.

Da Nang Port

The port of Da Nang is one of Central Vietnam’s largest. With a total coverage area of about 300,000 square meters, it serves as a point of connection between South and North Vietnam.

Tien Sa-Son Tra, Tho Quang, and Lien Chieu are the three berth sections of this seaport. The port’s maximum vessel size is 45,000 DWT, although port infrastructure is being developed to expand that capability to 50,000 DWT. It is a medium-sized deep-water port that is strategically located in the South China Sea for marine commerce.

The Vietnamese Navy uses the west bank of the D Nang harbor, while commercial ships dock on the eastern bank. The entire Da Nang port is a natural harbour with a channel maximum depth of 13 meters near the entrance of the Han Giang River, as well as an oil storage connected to the Bay through an oil pipeline.

The Da Nang port’s channel depth spans from 10 to 17 meters, making it suitable for all types of cargo ships, bulk carriers, and liquid carriers. The port contains a 29,000-square-meter warehouse and an 184,000-square-meter open storage yard.

Saigon Port

Saigon was an old name for Ho Chi Minh Metropolis, Vietnam’s largest city and the country’s most significant trade center. The Saigon River, which opens up in the South China Sea 20 kilometers northeast of the Mekong Delta, is surrounded by Ho Chi Minh City.

The Saigon Newport Company, a governmental enterprise, manages and operates the port. The French colonists opened it to foreign trade in 1860, and it has been supporting the country on the sea trade field ever since.

The port serves as a vital hub for the Mekong Delta and Vietnam’s southeast area. Ho Chi Minh City is Vietnam’s main industrial hub, with shipbuilding, chemical manufacture, seafood processing, agriculture, and construction as major industries.

The Saigon Port is a deepwater port with channel depths ranging from 8.5 to 9.1 meters depending on the terminal. The Saigon port has a variety of terminals that serve various functions. For example, due to its deepwater capabilities, the Cai Mep terminal is one of the most preferred ports for Australian and US freight liners, but the Cat Lai Terminal, despite being one of the most advanced, only handles Asian lines due to the shallow channel depth.

The not-so-old port of Saigon is 500,000 square meters in size, whereas the new port is 452,700 square meters. The former port’s maximum vessel capacity was 50,000 DWT, however the new port can accommodate boats up to 30,790 DWT.

Vung Tau is a town in Ba-Ria Vung Tau province, located on the bank of the Saigon River. The port of Vung Tau is situated on Vietnam’s southeastern coast. The port is part of a complex of ports that primarily serve as Vietnam’s oil and gas trade center. Vung Tau, along with Ho Chi Minh City, is the country’s main international gateway.

The Vung Tau port is 14 kilometers long, with an average channel depth of 4.5 meters. 8000 GRT is the largest vessel size that can be accommodated at the port (gross register tonnage). For seafood transhipment cargo, the port includes a warehouse of 12,000 square meters and 950 MT of cold storage. Electrical repairing capabilities, general ship maintenance, and modern telecommunication and navigation systems are all available at the shipyard in the Vung Tau port.

The Vung Tau port is also being expanded to accommodate passenger traffic. The port cluster serves as a major trade hub for south and southeast Vietnam, as well as being strategically important due to its closeness to Thailand and Malaysia.

Shipping cargo: Vietnam <--> UAE

Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on economic and trade cooperation, in a bid to boost bilateral trade. The agreement was signed in Hanoi on 12 November 2014 by Vietnam’s Minister of Industry and Trade Vu Huy Hoang and UAE’s Minister of Economy Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansoori. Under the agreement, the two countries will work towards reducing trade barriers and promoting investment and tourism. They will also cooperate in the fields of agriculture, industry, science, and technology.

The agreement is seen as a boost to Vietnam’s economy, which is expected to grow by 5.8 percent in 2014. It is also a positive step for the UAE, which is seeking to diversify its economy and reduce its dependence on oil. The two countries have had strong economic ties since the UAE established diplomatic relations with Vietnam in 1976. Bilateral trade between the two countries has grown rapidly in recent years, reaching US$2.6 billion in 2013.

Market Update 2022

In 2022, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates will continue to strengthen their economic ties, with trade between the two countries expected to grow significantly. The UAE is one of Vietnam‘s major trading partners in the Middle East, and the two countries have enjoyed close economic relations in recent years. The expansion of trade between Vietnam and the UAE is expected to continue in the coming years, as the two countries look to capitalize on their strengths in different sectors.

The UAE is a major market for Vietnamese exports, including seafood, textiles, and agricultural products. In return, the UAE exports petroleum, machinery, and chemicals to Vietnam. The two countries have also been working closely together on a number of infrastructure projects in recent years. The expansion of trade between Vietnam and the UAE is a positive development for both countries. The two countries have complementary strengths and are well–positioned to capitalize on the growing demand for Vietnamese goods and services in the UAE.

The expansion of trade between the two countries is also expected to create jobs and spur economic growth in both countries.

Offenders may be subject to fines, jail time, or both. In some cases, the death penalty may be imposed.

Documents &amp; Customs Clearance

According to the Vietnam Customs Department, the clearance of cargo generally includes four steps: declaration, inspection, customs clearance, and release.
1. Declaration: The importer/exporter or their authorized representative must submit a customs declaration form to the customs authority. This form must include all required information such as a description of the goods, their value, and the country of origin.
2. Inspection: Customs officers will inspect the goods to ensure that they match the information declared on the customs declaration form.
3. Customs clearance: Once the goods have been inspected and verified, the customs authority will issue a clearance certificate.
4. Release: The importer/exporter can then take possession of the goods.

Rules &amp; Regulations

The shipping industry is heavily regulated in order to ensure the safety of both the workers and the cargo. When shipping to Vietnam, there are a few specific regulations that must be followed in order to avoid any penalties or delays. First, all cargo must be properly labeled with the correct destination. Second, all shipments must be insured in case of damage or loss. Finally, all shipments must be accompanied by the correct documentation, including a bill of lading and a certificate of origin. Failure to follow any of these rules can result in significant delays or even the confiscation of the shipment.
