Yamato 365 Express Cold Shipping in Vietnam

The transportation ensures that fruits and food remain as fresh as at the place of production.

Mr. Dinh Vinh Cuong – representative of Yamato 365 Express, said that the demand for cold supply in Vietnam is very high, ranking 17th in the world. With over 95 million people in the country having high demand for clean food such as fruits, vegetables, fish, and meat. However, transporting from production areas to consumers still has many limitations.

According to him, the actual loss rate in transportation, storage, etc., accounts for a percentage from 25-30%, and for items like fruits and vegetables, it can reach up to 45%. The main reason is that the cold supply transportation in Vietnam is still limited. The trend of using clean, imported, organic food, and food and beverage chains will help develop the cold supply market in the near future.
