Accordingly, the two sides agreed to cooperate in transportation services, postal services, as well as delivery, finance, insurance, goods distribution, and marketing and advertisement services.
In particular, VNPost will prioritise using VNR's railway transport services for its postal packages, while VNR will prioritise VNPost services, such as delivery of packages, documents, and goods at home and abroad in its network.
The two groups will also consider cooperating in transportation of all-in packages for customers and transportation of goods by rail from Vietnam to China.
VNR chairman Vu Anh Minh emphasised that the cooperation will help the two companies increase their competitiveness. "VNR is making a comprehensive revamp, including investments in railway stations, warehouses, and inland container depots (ICDs), while at the same time developing post-transport services," he added.
VNR is striving to increase operational efficiency by strengthening cooperation with other state-owned corporations.
In July this year, VNR also signed a cooperation agreement with Vietnam National Petroleum Group (Petrolimex) to strengthen cooperation in investment and business activities in the future.
In April, VNR inked a deal with Saigon Newport Corporation to build two inland container depots (ICDs) in Binh Duong province and Hanoi.
