In a new development, the company announced that it is going to enter the Vietnam market with the launch of its Advanced Express Delivery Service. The announcement was made at the launch ceremony of the same that took place at Ho Chi Minh City on October 11. The company has been expanding aggressively in South Asia and the move comes after the company launched its express delivery services across Thailand earlier this year. Vietnam is one of the fastest-growing economies in Asia and it is only natural for BEST Inc to launch its services in the country.
The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the company Johnny Chou stated that entry into Vietnam is another landmark in the company’s quest to grow its footprint globally. He went on to state,
“We hope that our technology-enabled solutions will contribute to the advancement of logistics and digital economy in Vietnam and across the region. Our enhanced logistics and supply chain services provide a high-quality option for Vietnamese merchants and consumers and can be scaled as ASEAN grows into an increasingly important economic center.”
The company is going to use its superior technology in order to deliver its services to as many businesses in Vietnam as possible. BEST Inc is going to operate as many as seven sortation centers across Vietnam and one of those is going to be a flagship center in partnership with BW Industrial. The flagship facility is going to span an area of 4.5 hectares and the company expects that it is going to be completed by April next year.
