International Shipping Services To And From Vietnam
Vietnam is fast becoming one of the most exciting new markets in the global logistics scene. Though it can be complex and undergo constant changes, a few basics are worth understanding first.
In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the considerations at hand when shipping goods in and out of Vietnam.
There are two delivery options for international shipping services to and from Vietnam: Air freight and sea freight. It’s important for you to choose the right type of transport to make the shipment more time and cost-efficient.
- Sea freight is the perfect option to ship heavy machinery, equipment, cars, or any other large-sized products that would be difficult to fit in an airplane.
- Air freight is the fastest and, therefore, most expensive shipping method. It’s recommended for smaller packages.
When it comes to deciding between sea and air freight there are a few considerations at hand. As you may have guessed, air freight is faster. But that isn’t always the top priority — certain goods just can’t fit or are too risky to do air. In that case, it’s worth outlining a plan that allows for more time so that safe freight can be accommodated.

SHIPPING OVERSIZED ITEMS TO AND FROM VIETNAM
The way you pack products can potentially reduce your shipping costs. Appropriate packaging might also help to bring down the total weight of the package.
To make sure you choose the right international shipping method, it’s essential that you know the volume, weight and dimensions of your items. Large shipments may incur an exceeded dimensions fee.
According to traditional shipping guidelines, packages are considered as oversized when they:
- weigh more than 150lbs (70 kg),
- are larger than 108 inches in length,
- have large size-to-weight ratio, or
- include an item larger than 165 inches in length and girth.
Oversized packages should be sent on pallets in order to minimize the risk of damage. Pallets also help your items stay upright and protect them during loading and unloading.

Strong, right-sized pallets keep items stable and ensure they are moved efficiently. They also save storage space and reduce unnecessary costs. If you are planning on shipping oversized products overseas, you should consider choosing pallets that have been fumigated and heat-treated, as some countries have restrictions on the import of wooden items.
