List of Electronics Manufacturers in Vietnam: An Overview

PCB assembly

Electronics is Vietnam’s top export category, largely thanks to large facilities operated by Samsung and other major electronics brands. That said, its domestic OEM electronics manufacturing base – open to all buyers – is booming in the country.

While it’s still far away from being comparable to Shenzhen, electronics manufacturers in Vietnam offer an alternative to companies looking beyond China for their next manufacturing project.

What types of electronics suppliers can be found in Vietnam?

Most electronics manufacturers in Vietnam are Electronic Manufacturing Service (EMS) companies. To put it simply, an EMS provides outsourced production facilities, labor, and procurement services for international customers.

Some EMS companies may also offer engineering and prototype development services.

That said, EMS companies don’t develop their own ODM products. Instead, they expect the buyer to provide a complete technical specification. Continue reading List of Electronics Manufacturers in Vietnam: An Overview

List of Sourcing Companies in Vietnam: Top 7 Agencies

vietnam sourcing company

Vietnam is quickly becoming a serious manufacturing alternative to China, especially for American importers vary of the ongoing US-China trade war. That said, Vietnamese suppliers are not as easy to find on Alibaba.com or Globalsources.com, compared to their Chinese counterparts.

As such, many importers turn to Vietnam based sourcing companies, with vast local supplier networks.

In this article, we list five of Vietnam’s leading sourcing agencies, all located in Asia’s fastest-growing manufacturing hub – Ho Chi Minh City.

Do I need a sourcing company when importing from Vietnam?

You can of course attempt to source Vietnamese directly, using Alibaba.com or even a Google search. However, Vietnamese suppliers tend to have a rather small online footprint, making them harder to find.

Those that do have a larger online presence tend to be larger suppliers, which tend to have little interest in working with small buyers.

Vietnam based sourcing companies can bridge that gap, using their local network and expertise to match you with a qualified supplier.

I’d say that sourcing agents provide more value in Vietnam, compared to more developed manufacturing countries like China. Continue reading List of Sourcing Companies in Vietnam: Top 7 Agencies

List of Shipping Companies in Vietnam: Top 7 Forwarders

Vietnam forwarders

Exploring your options to shift production from China to Vietnam? You might find that your existing freight forwarder network doesn’t even operate in the latter. To make things a bit easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of shipping companies based in Vietnam. In addition, we also cover the following:

  • What should I look for when selecting a freight forwarder?
  • How do I get the cheapest freight rate from Vietnam?
  • I need to ship materials and components from China to Vietnam. How do I arrange that?

What should I look for when selecting a freight forwarder?

You don’t necessarily need to work with a forwarder that is headquartered in Vietnam, to import goods from the country. That said, far from all freight forwarders operate in Vietnam, which is, therefore, the primary selection criteria.

Keep in mind that most forwarders covering Vietnam don’t have their own offices or warehouses there, but work closely with local agencies. There’s nothing odd with this setup. It’s simply the way the logistics industry works. Once you’ve worked out whether your forwarder can manage shipments from Vietnam, I suggest you ask them the following questions:

  • Which ports in Vietnam are covered in your network?
  • Do they have their own offices in Vietnam, or do they work with third parties?
  • Do they offer land transport between Vietnam and China?
  • Do they offer domestic land transportation?
  • Do you handle both sea and air freight?
  • Do you offer LCL shipping?

Looking for qualified shoes and footwear suppliers in Vietnam? In this article, we list some of Vietnam’s leading manufacturers, while also explaining what brands must know about the following:

  • Buying custom designed or private label footwear
  • MOQ Requirements
  • Finding shoe suppliers online
  • Relevant trade shows

Custom Design or Private Label?

Small importers tend to assume that manufacturers operate as design houses, developing their own yearly collections – for others to buy at factory prices, and resell with big profit margins.

That is not the case, as footwear manufacturers generally expect the buyer to provide a complete specification, including the following:

  • Design drawings
  • Bill of materials
  • Label files
  • List of standards

Some suppliers have basic ‘template products’, but don’t expect them to be on par with major brands. Continue reading List of Shoes & Footwear Manufacturers in Vietnam
