How to Ship Commercial Goods in Containers to Vietnam from the United States

Most major businesses in the United States that sell and ship their products to Vietnam from the United States ship inside containers.  Containers are shipped on vessels over the ocean and come in several sizes.  The most common container sizes are 20 foot, 40 foot and 40 foot high-cube.  International container shipping to Vietnam is available from most major ports in the United States.  The most common ports offering international shipping services to Vietnam include the ports of New York, Baltimore, Norfolk, Charleston, Savannah, Jacksonville, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles, Oakland and Seattle.  

In addition to shipping services from the major sea ports, service is also available to companies located in the mid-western states.  We can ship from major rail stations in Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Kansas City, and Memphis to Vietnam.  You can ship steel-making material, plastic, industrial engines, machinery, cotton, yarn, fabric, electrical machinery and other commercial cargo in containers to Vietnam from the United States.  Container shipping service is available to the ports of Haiphong and Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam from the United States.

Do you have cargo to ship to Vietnam but it will not fill up an entire container? You can ship partial container loads to Vietnam as well, this service is called less-than-container load (LCL) / container consolidation.  LCL service will only charge you for the amount of space you take up in the container.  If you do not have a full container worth of cargo, this is a cheaper way to ship commercial cargo to Vietnam.

How to Ship Cars, Trucks and Buses to Vietnam from the United States

In addition to shipping commercial cargo, you can ship cars, trucks, scooters, motorcycles and buses from the United States to Ho Chi Minh Vietnam on roll-on / roll-off car carrier vessels.  Roll-On / Roll-Off (commonly referred to as ro/ro) vessels are specially equipped to handle “rolling” cargo such as cars trucks and buses as well as cargo that is too big and/or heavy to ship inside a container.  International car shipping to Vietnam is available from most major east coast ports including New York, Baltimore and Jacksonville as well as the gulf coast port of Houston.   Overseas car shipping on ro/ro vessels is normally the best shipping option as it is inexpensive and oftentimes cheaper than container shipping.

In addition to handling cars, ro/ro vessels also handle construction equipment and heavy machinery.  If you are a heavy equipment dealer with a customer in Vietnam interested in purchasing an excavator, bull dozer, wheel loader, motor grader, crane or other type of equipment, we can ship your equipment to Vietnam on ro/ro vessels.
