It will accommodate about 250 booths of enterprises, showcasing products in the field of transportation and delivery, warehouse and stevedoring services, packaging, and IT.

The expo is expected to promote the development of Vietnam’s logistics industry commensurate with its potential, contributing to attracting more foreign investment and establishing a green logistics ecosystem.

In particular, the exhibition will be held at the same time and the same venue as the 27th VietFood, Beverage and Professional Packing Machines (VietFood & Beverage – ProPack) International Exhibition, which will feature about 550 booths. The two events will attract businesses from 20 countries and territories worldwide.

Experts said logistics is one of the fastest growing and most stable industries in Vietnam, with an annual average growth of between 14-16 per cent, reaching 40-42 billion USD per year.
