European approach in Vietnam
A local presence in Vietnam is crucial in order to offer a good service with regards to local trucking, customs and documentation.
We have our main office in Ho Chi Minh, which is the main business centre of Vietnam. It is the biggest city, with officially 12 million people and is more flexible than the capital Hanoi.
Our main advantage is we understand the way how business is done locally and how to pass the information to our partners in Europe. The way of how business is done is quite different and has a very different approach. In this way not a lot of Vietnamese do direct business with Europeans but also vice versa.
We offer the following added services:
- Specific export for parallel markets, where we buy products ex Works through our Belgian company and arrange the transport up to the port and arrange the necessary paperwork.
- Additional Cargo Insurance
- Export documentation
- Additional documents such as Certificate of Origin, Phytosanitary Certificates
- Correct declaration of the HS Code for import formalities in Europe or country of destination
- Assistance with additional information and documents at the country of destination for easy clearance

Free Trade Agreement with Europe
What does the EVFTA mean?
Almost all import duties on both sides will disappear. In short the Trade Agreement means Vietnam will eliminate 99 percent of its import duties over 10 years and the E.U. will do the same over 7 years.
