With the opening of an additional office on the border between Vietnam and China, DB Schenker has further boosted the capacities of its road transport services within Asia – the Asia LANDbridge. The office is located at the Huu Nghi border gate in the north of Vietnam. It is one of the busiest border posts between the two countries. Now DB Schenker has representative offices at all key borders connecting China to Southeast Asia.

 

While DB Schenker had already been operating a facility on the Chinese side of this border crossing, the additional office will simplify procedures significantly – not least because local regulations require drivers on cross-border trips between China and Vietnam to change trucks. “We opened the new facility because there is a clear customer need,” said Hoai Thanh, Head of Land Transport for DB Schenker Vietnam. “With hundreds of trucks passing the border every day carrying time-critical cargo, it is vital to have the infrastructure in place to enable smooth customs clearance and secure transfer for our customers.”
