Hanjin Group, a conglomerate of the Republic of Korea (RoK), signed a cooperation deal with Vietnam-based Hop Nhat Corporation (HNC) on March 13 to forge international express services between Vietnam and the RoK.

HNC is the first private express firm in Vietnam that was granted a licence for customs clearance of export-import cargo sent via international airway express service by the Vietnam Customs.

The corporation has more than 1,200 employees working in over 140 branches and offices and four logistic hubs nationwide.

A Hanjin’s senior official said through this agreement, the company will be able to handle more international express shipments to Vietnam.

Established in 1945, Hanjin Group has grown to become one of the largest transportation and logistics corporations in the RoK that offers a wide range of logistics solutions, including in-land, sea and air transportations.

It also owns Korean Air, the RoK’s biggest airline, and Inha University in Incheon City where many Vietnamese students are studying.-VNA
