If you’re an Australian business wanting to find new markets for goods exports, why not consider Vietnam? There are many good reasons that choosing to export goods to Vietnam is a wise move. This Southeast Asian country has seen rapid economic growth over the last 20 years or so. It also has a young and increasingly wealthy population of around 93 million. This has led to an increased demand for imported goods, creating brand new opportunities for Australian businesses. To find out more about exporting to Vietnam, you can read the country’s market profile compiled by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade).
Trade between Vietnam and Australia is covered by the ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (AANZFTA). This pact delivers extensive tariff reduction and greater certainty for suppliers of services and investors. The countries of the ASEAN (the Association of Southeast Asian Nations), after all, belong to one of the most dynamic economic regions in the world. The AANZFTA has eliminated many of the import tariffs for trade between these two countries since it came into force in 2010.
At the time of writing, the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP-11) had also just been signed – but was not yet in force. This agreement covers Australia and Vietnam, along with nine other countries. You can find out the latest on this and Australia’s other free trade agreements from the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
If you’re going to carry out freight forwarding to Vietnam, you need to know you’re doing it with a service provider you can fully trust. Freight forwarding is a specialised industry, and operations between Australia and the rest of the planet are made all the more complicated because of our geographical distance from the majority of other countries. While Papua New Guinea, our nearest neighbour, is just 6km away at the nearest point, Vietnam is a colossal 5,200km away. This is huge compared to Asian and European countries who often share borders, making importing and exporting goods much more straightforward.
If you’re looking to export to Vietnam from Australia, you’ll need to decide whether sending the items via sea or the ocean is the best option for your needs. As a quick guide, air freight to Vietnam takes around 1-6 days with TSL Australia and is the more expensive option. It is best used for cargo that is relatively light and does not take up too much space. Sea freight takes longer – think in terms of 20-30 days – and is more suited to consignments that are heavy, oversized or bulky.
