This marked further progress for Viettel Post as it implements its logistics infrastructure planning strategy, including a logistics park - center, bonded warehouses, and dry ports to connect raw material areas, agricultural areas, and aquatic products with transportation hubs such as railways, seaports, airports, and border gates to reduce time and cost in goods circulation.

In Nanning City, Viettel Post aims to become a leading enterprise in building cross-border logistics infrastructure. As the first Vietnamese logistics company to collaborate with local authorities in China to enhance cross-border transportation infrastructure, it aims to optimize logistics costs, reduce transportation time, enhance the competitiveness of Vietnamese goods, and improve Vietnam’s logistics position in connecting ASEAN countries and China.

In Pingxiang City, Viettel Post has reached agreements with local enterprises on three main points. Firstly, the two sides will efficiently exploit seamless transportation employing road and railway transportation via Yen Vien commune in Hanoi - Dong Dang commune in Lang Son - Pingxiang - Nanning route. Secondly, they will establish the China-ASEAN agricultural commodities trading center. Thirdly, the parties will exchange knowledge, design, and technology to jointly promote the implementation of smart border gates.

The completion of the cross-border transportation infrastructure by Viettel Post aims to enhance the competitiveness of Vietnamese goods, contribute to resolving congestion and damage issues at border gates, and elevate Vietnam’s logistics position in connecting ASEAN countries and China.
