DocShipper services in Vietnam
Sea freight from/to Vietnam
Sea freight is the most widely used method of transportation because it allows us to ship large volumes to the other side of the world at a competitive price. You have the possibility to send your goods under 2 formulas:
- Less container load (LCL): You group your goods with other shippers in a single container.
- Full container load (FCL): You reserve the whole container. The container is sealed from departure to arrival.
Air freight from/to Vietnam
Although it is not an expensive and polluting transportation solution, air freight makes it possible to ship goods over long distances and quickly. A few days of transit and your parcel to cross the world. Once again, you have the possibility to choose between 2 formulas:
- Conventional Air Cargo: You use the space available in conventional airlines such as Air France, American Airlines, Qatar Airways...
- Express Air Freight: If you have a small parcel - usually less than 100 Kgs - we recommend to send your goods with an express company such as DocShipper, DHL, Fedex, TNT, UPS...
Road freight from/to Vietnam
Road freight is usually an indispensable method since it will simply link the different terminals: your office, warehouse or home and the departure/arrival terminals such as ports, airports and train stations.
Please note that for short distances, we can use the truck for a door-to-door solution directly. This is for example the case for cross-border transport.
Post-transport services in Vietnam
We offer a multitude of post-transport logistics solutions in Vietnam. You need to store your goods for a short or long period of time? You can rent a space in our warehouses.
We also offer a packing service. A point not to be neglected since it will condition the rest of the operations: if your goods are packed in the right way, everything should go as planned. However, if you neglect this step, you may have unpleasant surprises.
Vietnam customs clearance services
It is simply an mandatory step in international logistics. When your goods arrive at the border of a country, they will necessarily have to obtain the approval of the customs authorities to enter the destination market. This means preparing the entire documentation package to certify the conformity of the products.
