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

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?

  • Buying custom designed or private label footwear

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

How to find Vietnam suppliers online using Alibaba

There are multiple supplier directories in Vietnam. Yet, Alibaba.com is the largest online supplier directory for those looking for Vietnam based factories.

Alibaba.com has a dedicated section for Vietnamese suppliers, and they are becoming increasingly prominent when searching for many product types.

Alibaba.com allows users to filter suppliers based on country. Thus, you can decide to limit your sourcing to Vietnamese suppliers only.

Alibaba.com also verifies all Gold Suppliers, including those based in Vietnam. Thus, they provide one of the few reliable sources of supplier data in the country, including the following:

  • Company name
  • Registered address
  • Legal form
  • Registration No.
  • Issuing Authority
  • Date of issue
  • Applicant name
  • Applicant job title

Globalsources.com also have Vietnamese suppliers listed in their directory. However, the number of suppliers is far lower than on Alibaba.
