The Transportation and Logistics Sector Committee was officially established under EuroCham in 2009, to provide an advocacy forum for all EuroCham members in the transportation and logistics sector.
Vietnam, with its favourable conditions in terms of geographic location, labour force, stable political environment, has seen a strong growth of its manufacturing sector and corresponding import and export volumes. Whilst in recent years the Government has taken steps to improve the Vietnamese transportation infrastructure, and import-export procedures, it is recognized that still more needs to be done to enable Vietnam’s industry to be competitive worldwide in supply chains and to opens future markets for Vietnam, e.g. as a regional transportation/transshipment hub.
Since its establishment, the TLSC has established close relationships with Customs departments, regulatory authorities and other logistics associations. Building on these links, the TLSC has a proven track record in voicing the legitimate concerns of transport and logistics companies, and has been effective in driving regulatory or operational change, to create a better business environment for our members.
The TLSC members represent the vast diversity of companies in the Transportation and Logistics industry including, but not limited to, shipping lines, airlines, freight forwarders, logistics service providers, air express operators, warehouse operators, and other companies with related services.
The aim of the TLSC is to support its members in the development of Vietnamese transportation and logistics industry. Where challenges are encountered, or opportunities are identified, we will raise these issues, with a unified voice, to the appropriate Ministries or Government Departments, to seek change in regulations or operational practice.
The TLSC is open to all such international companies, regardless of whether their headquarters are based in Europe or on other continents. Our group operates under the management of an Executive Board with 6 members and has 4 Working Groups all working towards achieving the above.
- Shipping lines & Terminals
- Forwarders & Airlines
- Manufacturers & Logistics Providers
