US-China Trade War and the Covid epidemic results in trillions of capitals leaving China, most of them ended up in Vietnam. Chinese manufacturers are themselves moving to Vietnam to save on labor costs and expand their production capabilities. Vietnam’s proximity to China makes importing goods from China easy by road, while labor costs remain 1/3rd of China’s. Shipping from Vietnam takes the same to reach international markets in the US and Europe, providing great savings for businesses in both production and tariffs costs.

While many new factories and power stations are being built in modular manner – with components designed with efficient transport and installation in mind – older facilities pose unique heavy transport (đặt back link về dịch vụ heavy transport) challenges. Few were designed with relocation in mind and their buildings and components must be carefully handled for the whole process. PPL’s clients, ranging from small businesses to multinationals, are reassured by our reputation and experience of machinery moves across many market sectors. Moreover, with the advantages of cross-border transport and customs process, we are able to fulfil any requirement from customer, moving from any country to Vietnam.

Location and site access are always key factors in relocation projects. The removal of plant from an industrial area, a desert or an urban space will have different implications in terms of planning the safest and most sustainable operation with minimum disruption. It will define the heavy transport equipment options, as well as the techniques used. PPL approaches relocation projects by paying specific attention to safety, cost-effectiveness, the schedule.
