THACO said it has been boosting market research and seeking chances to export semi-trailers to the US, attracting attention from many US businesses, including PITTS Enterprises.

To increase the export to the US and other markets like Japan, Canada, and Australia, the firm will build a semi-trailer and heavy component factory able to manufacture 20,000 units per year.

It is also implementing a logistics development strategy in the Chu Lai Open Economic Zone of Quang Nam province, as well as the central region as a whole, in efforts to reduce logistics costs, THACO added.
