Another SE Asian country looking to ramp up motorcycle exports is Vietnam. We’ve written about the Vietnamese scooter rebuilding companies trying to make a name for themselves with varying degrees of success, but Vietnam is moving into building and exporting brand new motorcycles, too. It’s not a big industry yet, but you can be sure it will be. They’re aiming at $300 million worth of exports by 2010 with steady increases afterwards.
The tip for this information came from the newest site in our network, Export Logistics Guide, a great place to keep up with the latest exporting news and how-to export information. The writer (who just happens to be my wife) knows the exporting business. She has a lot of experience moving big and heavy cargo, the kind that doesn’t fit in a FedEx box, REALLY big stuff, like cargo that might require an Antonov AN-225 cargo plane and even things that won’t fit into one of those, like large numbers of railroad locomotives and she ships to every continent, well not to Antarctica, … yet. So if you want to get the word from a real export expert, if you need to know about letters of credit, export packing requirements, the Ex-Im Bank or anything else pertaining to global exports, check out her site.
