(VEN) - The Delta International Co., Ltd. is making greater efforts to realize the vision of becoming the leading provider of supply chain management services in Vietnam.
The country’s international economic integration process has entered a new stage with strong growth of trading activities. Therefore, the logistics demand of domestic and foreign companies has been increasing.
The Delta International Co., Ltd. was founded in 2004 with only four employees, handling mostly air cargo at Noi Bai International Airport. After 13 years of development, the company has become an official member of the Vietnam Logistics Business Association (VLA) and the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA). Tran Duc Nghia, director of the Delta International Co., Ltd., said the company provides customs clearance, inland haulage, warehousing and international freight services.
Delta has been offering customs clearance services to foreign direct investment projects. As a result, the company has worked with many foreign investors in Vietnam, especially Japanese investors. The company has dozens of Japanese customers nationwide and most of them are operating in electric and electronic industries.
Delta has a team of more than 30 customs clearance agents licensed by the General Department of Vietnam Customs. This is the highest number of licensed workforce in the industry, ensuring that the company can meet all customers’ demands in all types of goods, import or export.
In terms of inland haulage, Delta’s truck fleets have been continuously expanded, consisting of various types from 1.25-tonne box trucks to container tractors. Every truck has been equipped with GPS equipment to enhance the safety and provide accurate and timely information of goods transported.
Regarding international freight, the company has a worldwide network of agents in Europe, North America and Asia to meet all customers’ demands in this business. Delta has also been offering warehousing services in the south. The company has achieved optimistic business results thanks to providing these four services. Nghia said that the company has seen strong development of scale, human resources and means of transport. The company’s sales increased by more than 30 percent in 2016 and are expected to increase further by 2017.
In addition to investment in human resources, science and technology, the company will continue to pour capital into infrastructure development to serve its operation. However, Nghia said that small to medium-sized logistics businesses face many difficulties posed by the 2013 Land Law, which specifies that if the land is leased with annual rental payment, it is not considered as collateral for loans. Therefore, the state needs to review and adjust this content to support logistics businesses. In addition, the government should better implement the planning to optimize logistics costs.
