VinFast, Vietnam’s first global electric vehicle manufacturer, and INFORM – a leading provider of AI-based optimisation software that facilitates enterprise solutions, announced a global strategic partnership on electric vehicle logistics management for VinFast.
Under this partnership, INFORM will provide advanced vehicle logistics management software solutions to VinFast, including Transport Management Software (TMS) and a vehicle Yard Management System (YMS). These software solutions will deliver end-to-end transparency and optimised processes from ordering the vehicle to its delivery to customers, making the delivery process faster, more efficient and sustainable. VinFast can monitor its EV logistics, optimising processes from vehicle ordering and delivery to vehicle recalls.
Major ports in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Vietnam will benefit from INFORM’s solutions through optimised yard management, workshop scheduling activities, workforce management, and logistics service provider routing activities.
In the first phase of this partnership, INFORM’s software will be implemented in the United States, Canada, and Vietnam, with Europe following closely behind, effectively supporting the transportation of VinFast electric vehicles to customers. The entire INFORM solution is projected to be in place across VinFast’s ecosystem within 18-24 months.
Mdm. Le Thi Thu Thuy, Vice Chairwoman of Vingroup and Chairwoman of VinFast, said, “VinFast is currently in the process of mass production and delivery to global customers. INFORM’s expertise is the key to VinFast’s logistics, offering end-to-end solutions from when the vehicles are exported from Vietnam to when they are delivered to the customers. INFORM’s technologies will help VinFast achieve faster, more efficient, and sustainable vehicle deliveries.”
INFORM Software Corporation’s Chief Operating Officer Justin Newell said, “INFORM is extremely pleased to announce our strategic partnership with VinFast as they are a new premier EV manufacturer striving for a more sustainable future, which aligns with both INFORM’s corporate and sustainability goals. INFORM’s ability to deliver solutions across the entire vehicle supply chain from the factory outgate to customer handover is a key deliverable for our VinFast project.”
INFORM’s software solutions can also easily integrate with VinFast’s other enterprise management software such as SAP – Enterprise Resource Planning solution, and Salesforce CRM – customer relation management program. These technologies will fully support VinFast’s high standards for customer service, sustainability, and supply chain resilience.
