KUALA LUMPUR, Nippon Express (Vietnam) Co Ltd (NX Vietnam), a group company of Nippon Express Holdings Inc, recently launched a service providing north-south rail transport between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

This daily rail transport service covers 1,700 kilometres between Hanoi in the north and Ho Chi Minh City in the south in about 48 hours, to lower susceptibility to traffic congestion and meet the logistics needs of its customers.

According to a statement, rail transport is capable of transporting large volumes of cargo with far fewer carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions than truck transport, helping to reduce companies’ environmental impact.

The Vietnamese economy has experienced remarkable growth in recent years, spurring a rapid increase in logistics needs across a variety of industries, including manufacturing and retail sales.

The logistics networks linking the country’s north and south are in particularly high demand as key routes between manufacturing bases and consumption centres, resulting in sev
ere and chronic traffic congestion in Vietnam, adding to the time and cost of truck transport.

In addition, a new environmental protection law came into effect in the country in 2022, requiring companies to make even greater efforts to reduce their environmental impact.

The NX Group will continue providing high-quality logistics services to meet the needs of its customers even as it strives to reduce CO2 emissions, achieve sustainable societies, and grow alongside local communities worldwide.
