Vietnam is known as the world´s sixth largest producer of rice and the second largest rice exporter. Half of Vietnamese rice is derived from the Mekong Delta, and 90% of Vietnam´s rice export comes from this area. The dependency on the freight transport system has always been a key issue in the rice production industry in the Mekong Delta. Therefore, the goal of this study is to investigate and assess the influences of freight transport management on rice logistics in Vietnam. The focus of freight transport management in this context refers to public decision-making addressing freight transport issues like the development of new logistics locations or improvement of transport infrastructure. Based on the investigation, effective measures will be recommended for improving transport system thereby improving rice logistics in Vietnam.
