Abstract

Indochina has undergone tremendous change in the past decade to achieve good economic performance. However, the continuation of this strong economic performance depends on an efficient logistics infrastructure. Examines the region’s logistics realities. Specifically, the paper finds that the logistics infrastructure is still rather backward with inadequate transportation networks, inefficient customs procedures, and basic materials handling facilities. Based on this, proposals are made regarding some strategies for managers, MNCs and logistics providers who are keen to enter this emerging market.
