Swiss transport and logistics company, M+R Spedag has shifted from commercial representation to fully operational offices in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and Haiphon Port in Vietnam. The company, which as been serving Vietnam for many years in cooperation with local partners, said the significant investments demonstrate M+R Spedag’s commitment to Vietnam.
“Following the opening of the first branches of M+R in Asia in 1985, we have continuously expanded our network of own offices in this region to now over 45.
The expansion into Vietnam represents the logical next step of our way to cover all the emerging economies in Eastern Asia”, says Daniel Richner, owner and CEO of the group.
“We are proud to finally extend our coverage in Vietnam from a commercial representation to fully operational offices under the name of M+R Forwarding Co Ltd. We firmly believe in the fast growing market of 93 million people and the talents of the Vietnamese people to grow their economy exponentially over the next years.” says Gareth Evans, executive director of M+R Forwarding Pte Ltd, Singapore.
With exciting changes inside and outside the country such as with the TPP in pipeline, M+R considers itself now well positioned to expand business and its services for its network and direct clientele. It was a natural progression after years of on the ground work in procurement and development, it said. The new office in Vietnam will report directly to M+R Singapore, which acts as a regional logistics and transshipment hub for Southeast Asia.
