Norbert Dentressangle has opened a new office in Hanoi, Vietnam, to focus on traffic between Vietnam and China.
HSBC said trade between the two nations is expected to rise by 18 percent in the next two years, and Vietnam has set a 2013 Chinese export goal of $126 billion.
Norbert Dentressangle’s Guillaume Col said while the office will limit its service to Chinese customers in the short term, he’s already looking forward to expanding its services to other Vietnamese trading partners.
“We continue to strengthen our freight forwarding operations in growing markets and the new office in Vietnam gives us a presence in one of the most dynamic emerging countries in the East Asia region,” he said in a statement. - Jon Ross
