The view of Inland Container Depot My Dinh

From a manpower exporting station, after 35 years of development, Interserco has become a substantial company with many subsidiaries and member companies, operating in the mother-member company model. Interserco is widely known in the fields of logistics, manpower export, commerce, import and export services …

Linking the services

Mr. Phung Tien Toan – Chairman of the International Investment Trade and Service Company (Interserco) shared that after many ups and downs, Interserco has brought thousands of Vietnamese workers aboard to work in many countries such as Russia, Czech, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore and the United States… in a wide array of fields such as welding, precision engineering, electronical assembly. Interserco has also left a strong impression in these fields by becoming a professional contractor in supplying experts and skilled workers.

Importing and export services, despite its late establishment, are closely linked with transportation, and together they support each other in servicing and supporting customers. Notably, Interserco has provided complete packages of transportation and its accompanying services.

In 2001, Hanoi People’s Committee issued Decision No. 5542/QĐ-UB, assigned Interserco as the investor for the Inland Container Depot My Dinh Project in My Dinh ward, Nam Tu Liem district with a total area of  55.250 m2. After 3 years of  implementation, in October 2004, the first phase of the project has been completed and put in use. The Project is awarded “The 50th Anniversary of Hanoi’s Liberation” by the Hanoi People’s Committee.

Putting ICD My Dinh in operation has brought enormous economic and social benefits, providing good support for the import and export companies, creating new jobs for thousands of workers in the early years. Average annual imports and exports last year has reached over 1,700 million U.S. Dollars, annually contributing over 1,500 billion Vietnam Dong to the state budget.

Changing the model of business

Mr. Toan said that toward the end of 2015, Interserco will convert to the joint stock company model. Along with this conversion is the attracting investment, contribution of strategic stockholders and other economic entities. The equitisation process will bring new aspects for Interserco in production and trading.

Realizing the positive influences of the success of the TPP negotiation toward Vietnam’s economy in general and the import, export activities between Vietnam and the Member States in particular, in the coming 5 years, Interserco will continue developing and expanding ICD and invest in a logistics center to cooperate domestic and international activities to support and connect logistics services, manpower supplying, trade and manufacturing.

The activities of the mother company and its departments shall be publicized so that the entire system is improved and developed to meet international standards. Besides, Interserco will also be focusing on developing its personnel. “Aside from recruiting high quality staffs, we will be training personnel, especially the middle level personnel. They shall be the ones implementing the strategies outlined by the leaders – they are the workers directly creating values for the company” – Mr. Toan emphasized.
