Nowadays, with global economic integration, logistics plays an indispensable role and an important bridge in the process of bringing the country into the world. Currently, despite the continuous Covid-19 pandemic, Logistics, as well as the Logistics center, are still making a breakthrough and bringing many important contributions to the development of the national economy.
1. Logistics situation in Vietnam
In recent years, the logistics industry has been illustrating its potential and development prospects when making a significant contribution to increasing the import and export turnover of the country. Specifically, in 2021, although the epidemic situation has not shown any positive signs, the total turnover in Logistics reached a record number of USD 668.55 billion. Thanks to this remarkable result, Vietnam is honored to be in the top 20 leading economies in terms of international trade. However, according to the current circumstance, Vietnam has up to 90% of domestic enterprises operating in Vietnam’s logistics industry, but only accounts for 30% of the market share, the remaining 60% belongs to foreign enterprises. In addition, although up to 1000 enterprises operate in this industry, there are mainly small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Thus, it can be seen that, although the Logistics industry as well as has great potential and prospects, the capital source is not guaranteed gradually to the organizational structure of the enterprise. To be specific, the scale is not expanded, and the representative offices in foreign countries cannot be organized, so information sources are limited. All jobs related to foreign countries must go through agents of multinational companies.
In addition, the infrastructure and quality of Human Resources are also weaknesses that need to be overcome promptly in the Logistics industry as well as the Logistics center. Experts said that the infrastructure for this industry is still weak, has not been invested in a methodical way, and has not been improved in the equipment. Consequently, those issues would lead to frequent congestion of goods, and seriously affect the transportation process.

Due to the 2025 Vision, Vietnam strives to achieve service growth of 15%-20%, contribute to GDP growth at 8%-10%, and reach the top 50 countries ranked by the national logistics capacity index (LPI) in the world. With this goal and vision, Vietnam needs to provide clear directions and strategies to overcome current barriers.
- Completing policies and laws on logistics services
- Giving supportive policies to promote the development of the logistics service industry
- Improving logistics infrastructure
- Applying Information technology application, digital transformation, and innovation
- Promoting international cooperation in the field of logistics
2. Importance of Logistics Center
Nowadays, with its development potential, Logistics has made a significant contribution to promoting GDP growth, economical development, and countries’ competitiveness. Besides, Logistics is considered a service industry that potentially brings added value.
The bridge linking economic activities within the country
Logistics is a bridge linking economic activities from production to trade, closely coordinating to create common development. Therefore, the development of the logistics center in Vietnam has created leverage, promoting the growth and development of all other economic activities and the overall development of the country’s economy.
Strengthen international collaboration
Logistics, as well as Logistics centers, is an important factor in promoting economic cooperation relationships between countries around the world. Logistics links domestic trade activities with other countries, thus, helping the country’s economy easily integrate into the world’s common market. Particularly, through transnational corporations (TNCs), trade and investment activities are promoted more than ever before.
Promote national competitiveness
Logistic activities will help the national economy to integrate with the global economic market and this is an opportunity to demonstrate the advantages and potential of each country in the “race” for economic rankings. Thus, it can be said that Logistics as well as Logistics centers not only create opportunities for the country’s economy to reach out to the world but also improve economic competitiveness between countries.
