DocShipper’s services in Vietnam
Sea Freight from/to Vietnam
Ocean freight is the most popular form of shipping. It allows large quantities of goods to be transported cost-effectively from one country to another using sea containers. Ocean freight is the most versatile, reliable and cost-effective form of shipping. Compared to road and air transport, it has a minimal effect on the environment. You have two options for shipping your items:
LCL (less than container load): With this service, you can combine your products with those of other shippers in one container.
FCL (full container load): You reserve the entire container and keep it closed from start to finish.
Air freight to and from Vietnam
The transportation of goods by air is called air freight. Although it is not a cheap or environmentally friendly mode of transportation, air freight allows you to transport items quickly and over long distances. In just a few days, your package will be halfway around the world. There are two ways to ship your stuff by air freight:
Traditional air freight: You lease space on established air cargo carriers such as Air France, Qatar Airways and American Airlines...
Express air freight: The three categories: tracking, on-time delivery and door-to-door. For small products weighing less than 100kg, we recommend using an expedited shipping service such as UPS, Fedex, DHL, TNT...
Road freight to/from Vietnam
Many terminals, such as your warehouse, business or residence, are connected by road freight to departure/arrival terminals, such as ports, airports and railway stations.
Road freight is the most convenient and fastest mode of transportation, but it is also the least environmentally friendly. For short distances, such as cross-border travel, road transport offers a direct door-to-door alternative.
Sourcing services in Vietnam
Sourcing is a service that facilitates the export and import of goods. Its purpose is to meet your company's growth objectives and product and service expectations. You don't need to go to great lengths to choose the most cost-effective content distributor. The following objectives will be followed throughout the sourcing process:
Sourcing: We will find the right vendors for your project.
Price negotiation: Take advantage of our years of experience in the import/export industry to get low prices.
Is it necessary to test your product before it goes into production? If you wish, we can send you a sample by e-mail.
Compliance: Asian items may or may not comply with the laws of your market; this last element is crucial!
Quality Controls: We evaluate your shipment based on two major considerations: the volume to be controlled and the degree of control required.
Finally, we take care of all the logistical needs up to your warehouse.
Post-transportation services in Vietnam
We can help you pack your goods. This is a crucial issue because it affects the rest of the process: everything should go well if your items are properly packed. If you skip this step, you may find yourself in a difficult situation.
In Vietnam, the company provides a wide range of post-transport logistics services. Do you want to keep your goods for a longer or shorter period? We invite you to use one of our facilities to rent a space.
Customs clearance services in Vietnam
Once your goods have been delivered to a national border, they must be cleared through customs in order to reach the final market. This step consists of gathering the necessary documents to verify the conformity of the items. In the logistics process, this is a critical step.

International Airports in Vietnam
Noi Bai City is home to the Noi Bai International Airport
All flights to Hanoi land at Noi Bai International Airport in Soc Son District, 45 kilometers north of the capital, Hanoi. Although it is smaller than the country's other two international airports, it was the second busiest in terms of passenger numbers after Ton San Nhat in 2005.
The airport, originally built by the North Vietnamese Air Force, became Hanoi's main airport after Vietnam's reunification in 1975.
Despite its modernization and expansion, Ton San Nhat remains the country's second largest airport in terms of air traffic and passenger numbers.
Tan Son Nhat International Airport
This airport is located in the Vietnamese city of Tan Son Nhat.
The busiest airport in Vietnam is Tan Son Nhat Airport, often known as Tan Son Nhut Airport. It is located in the center of the city and serves as an arrival hub for all flights arriving in Ho Chi Minh City.
Tan Son Nhat Airport is always busy, with about 38 million passengers passing through in 2018. It has two concrete runways that can accommodate up to 25 million people per year.
Due to the large amount of passengers on domestic routes, which has congested Terminal 1, another airport, Long Thanh, will take over sections of Tan Son Nhat's operations in 2020, with a capacity of 100 million passengers per year, mainly for domestic routes.
During the Vietnam War, both the U.S. Air Force and the South Vietnamese Air Force used Tan Son Nhat as an important air base.
