UPS have revealed their Inaugural flights into Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) and Hanoi of Vietnam to enable the delivery of urgent shipments from key markets.
The latest destination added to the intra-Asia route flown by UPS will improve shipment times by one day and expand capacity for Vietnam-based businesses to deliver more, faster.
“These new flights are a reminder that Vietnam, fresh from concluding landmark trade deals such as the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement, is continuing to grow its global trade footprint. UPS, with its smart, global logistics network, is dedicated to enabling businesses along their journey to expand across borders. The country’s dynamic workforce, market liberalization and strategic location, will ensure its position as an important manufacturing base and link in the global supply chain, now and into the future,” Russell Reed, Managing Director, UPS Vietnam and Thailand told Vietnam Insider.
Businesses across the country in North, South, and Central Vietnam will be able to receive urgent shipments in China, Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia to Hanoi and HCMC in one day.
Time-sensitive shipments from Australia, Europe, and the US can be delivered within two days. This means that important imported items can be received quicker whilst also allowing exports to start their journeys to the rest of Asia with greater ease and confidence.
UPS’s flights into Hanoi operate every Saturday and ply the US-Asia route, reflecting Vietnam’s growing importance along this strategic trade lane.
With the additional flight in Hanoi, capacity will also increase to better serve the needs of customers that seek to connect from Asia to the US.
