Vietnam’s e-commerce

Vietnam’s e-commerce acceleration to gain a boost from DHL e-Commerce NEWS AND MARKETS DHL e-Commerce, a division of the logistics company, Deutsche Post DHL Group, has launched its nationwide domestic delivery operations in Vietnam. The domestic delivery network will offer a high quality delivery service across Vietnam and a range of services, tailored for the booming e-commerce industry, helping small, medium and large e-tailers and marketplaces increase their share amidst the rapidly growing Vietnam e-commerce segment. “The Vietnamese e-commerce market represents a huge and relatively untapped potential for local retailers, e-tailers and marketplaces: in 2016, total e-commerce spending hit US billion despite barely over 50 % of the population being online,” said Charles Brewer, CEO, DHL e-Commerce. “With e-commerce spending expected to grow at around 23 % per year between now and 2020, local e- tailers need scalable, high-quality logistics solutions with nationwide coverage more than ever before.” DHL e-Commerce Vietnam offers domestic delivery nationwide across the country, managed by hubs and depots strategically located throughout the country. DHL e-Commerce’s fleet of vans and motorbikes, coupled with regular air and road connections between its hubs, will support next-day delivery in Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi and other primary markets. “Our new domestic delivery service brings to Vietnam DHL’s extensive experience in designing comprehensive logistics networks, coupled with tailored e-commerce solutions to tackle some of the most pressing roadblocks to e-commerce growth,” added Brewer. “With e-commerce, consumers are increasingly expecting greater choice, convenience and control in their delivery experience and we aim to deliver a smile in the last mile by providing an amazing and customer-centric delivery solution.” When using the network, local e-tailers can easily assign shipments requiring cash on delivery service through DHL e-Commerce’s online portal, allowing for faster remittance and simpler management of shipment information.

That, combined with concerns about the hassle of returns and refunds, has made growth an uphill battle for many local e-tailers,” said Thomas Harris, Managing Director, DHL e-Commerce, Vietnam. “We recognize that having a fast and reliable delivery service won’t solve these issues alone, which is why we’ve tailored our nationwide network to seamlessly handle cash payments with next day cash remittance and returns to take the burden off local e-tailers so they can fully focus on growth and customer experience.” Electric motorbikes in Vietnam as part of DPDHL’s 2050 Zero Emissions commitment In line with the DPDHL Group announcement to reduce all logisticsrelated emissions to zero by 2050, DHL e-Commerce has begun deploying the use of electric motorbikes in its domestic delivery operations in Vietnam. The current fleet of vehicles includes a range of electric motorbikes and the company will be exploring plans to roll out more. “Practical innovation lies at the core of our domestic delivery networks all around Southeast Asia, and Vietnam is no exception with its fleet of environmentally friendly electric motorbikes already in action on the streets,” added Thomas Harris, Managing Director, DHL e-Commerce Vietnam. “Coupled with advances in technology, we are optimistic that environmentally-friendly delivery methods such as electric vehicles will be the future of domestic B2C delivery and we’re pleased to be able to introduce this into Vietnam.” DHL e-Commerce is part of Deutsche Post DHL Group. In Vietnam, DHL has been present since 1988. DHL e-Commerce focuses on three main product pillars: first and last mile delivery or domestic delivery in selected markets; simple and affordable cross-border international shipping for e-commerce businesses; and fulfillment solutions.
