Some examples of what you will see in a typical Vietnamese clothing factory.
Another great example.
Chinese manufacturers have been moving their factories to Vietnam since the early 2000s because sourcing from Vietnam offers refuge from the brutal competition of Chinese businesses. This is turning a large portion of Vietnam’s manufacturing industry into an extension of China’s industry.
Whether a factory in Vietnam is run by a Chinese or Vietnamese owner, the factory still benefits from Vietnam’s prime location. Not only can it quickly outsource clothing production materials and equipment from China, but it can also ship finished goods from one of the country’s many international trade ports. Shipping by ocean can be 6 times less expensive than by air so manufacturing in a country with several trade ports is a huge cost advantage and Vietnam has many ports.
If you haven’t considered sourcing in Vietnam then it’s something you should. Check out our main page to find out more about Finding Vietnam Clothing Manufacturers
