Set up a logistics company in Vietnam

According to the judgment of the World Bank, Vietnam has always been a destination for foreign investors, because from now to 2020, development is expected to grow at an annual rate of 12%, and the import and export trade volume will reach US$623 billion by 2020. The need to improve logistics is accompanied by this extraordinary growth, while striving to qualify economic development and maximize the interests of manufacturing companies. This has led to the recent surge in demand for the establishment of logistics companies in Vietnam, and domestic and foreign investors believe this is right. In order to provide key information on the start of an organizational agreement to engage in logistics business, the Vietnamese law firm hopes to provide clients with conditions and procedures so that investors can legally conduct business in Vietnam.

Setting up a domestic logistics company is much simpler than setting up a foreign company, which is reasonable. If a domestic investor establishes a company with 100% domestic capital, in addition to implementing the establishment procedures in accordance with the 2014 Corporate Law and Decree No. 78/2015/ND-CP, the investor is also required to obtain a business license for certain logistics services in the country Authorized agencies depend on the services provided, for example: Vietnam Civil Aviation Administration, Vietnam Maritime Safety Administration,…

These establishment steps include:

Step 1: Submit the establishment of enterprise files according to the form of the Ministry of Planning and Investment;

The file includes:

Business registration application form;

company policy;

List of members or shareholders (if the company is a multi-member limited company of a joint-stock company);

Individual: ID card or valid passport;

Organization: Decisions or equivalent documents regarding business registration or certificates, identification documents of authorized representatives and power of attorney (if the founder is an organization).

If the member is an organization, decide to contribute

Vietnam Power of Attorney.

Step 2: Notify the organization information (the content of the business license organization and the information of the business line.)

After issuing a business license organization, the company must publicly announce it on the national business registration portal.

Step 3: Establish the company seal and notify the company seal
