Further, there’s no local equivalent to Alibaba.com. That said, there are a number of both Vietnam-based and international supplier directories you should check out if you’re looking for manufacturers, trading companies and wholesalers in the country.

Vietnam is quickly becoming a serious manufacturing alternative to China, especially for American importers caught in between the US-China trade war. That said, Vietnamese suppliers are not as easy to find on Alibaba.com or Globalsources.com.

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

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

Listed Companies

  • AGS Vietnam
  • Create Global
  • Sourcify (Vietnam)
  • Seditex
  • Dragon Sourcing
  • Modern Sourcing
  • Vietnam B2B Direct

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, on average, sourcing agents provide more value in Vietnam, compared to more developed manufacturing countries like China.

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?
