Our client had to deliver IT equipment into their Vietnam data center. Without an importer or business license, they needed a full service supply chain provider to properly import the specialized equipment into Vietnam on their behalf.
The client wanted to procure the equipment in the USA from their preferred VAR, configure it at their head office, then ship it into Vietnam. Previous attempts using an integrator like FedEx or UPS, resulted in the shipment being held indefinitely and ultimately returned to their head office in the USA.
Working with FGX gave the client the confidence and peace of mind that they could procure their IT hardware in the USA and successfully deploy it to their data center in Vietnam.
Importance of Valuing Your Shipment
Clients must be aware that valuing each commodity according to its real market value is critical when shipping IT equipment into Vietnam. During customs clearance, Vietnamese customs agents verify stated values against the researched value of the goods. Mismatched valuations may result in a failed quality inspection and denial of a certificate of conformity.
FGX was able to handle the entire logistics process from local collection to final delivery. Our team in Vietnam was able to handle the shipment effortlessly through the custom process allowing for expedited clearance timeline. The client was able to procure their hardware in the USA and seamlessly ship it to Vietnam.
