FUTA Group is known as one of leading enterprises operating in fields of highquality passenger and cargo transport and as a successful one in fields of property and building stopovers,... How does the FUTA ecosystem develop?

When there is any need of traveling from customers, there is merely an answer: Phuong Trang.

Over the past 3 years, we have achieved more than 10 awards related to the field of transport. For example, in 2018, FUTA wasin the Top 10 of the most prestigious transport and logistics companies in Vietnam. The following year (2019), we were included in the Top 5 most prestigious passenger transport companies of 2019, and in Top 50 of the most famous brands in Vietnam. At an international level, we have regularly been awarded the titles “Asian Quality ProductsServices” and “Top 10 of Asian famous brands”. Therefore it can be said that FUTA Group is one of Vietnam’s distinguished transport enterprises that has won many titles in both Vietnam and Asia.

In 2020, despite impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, FUTA Group with its flexibility and determination faced the challenges in order to achieve stable development. Its efforts have been acknowledged by the titles of “Top 10 of the Asia Pacific most prestigious brands”, “Top 10 of the most famous and competitive brands”. And att the beginning of 2021, FUTA Group was honored to receive the titles of “Top 5 of the most prestigious passenger transport companies in 2020” and “Top 5 of the most prestigious terminal delivery and fast deliver companies in 2020”.

In the field of property - FUTA’s fledgling business, we have had noteworthy achievements of high quality products as Danang Plaza Apartments, New Pearl Luxury Apartments,... and a number of upcoming projects to be offered such as Danang Times Square and Thuan Phuoc New Urban Area,...

Understanding the needs of passengers to rest on long-distance inter-province routes, FUTA Groups has had significant investments in stopover systems at key spots en-route as Mandaguoi stopover in Lam Dong, Phuc Loc stopover at Tien Giang, etc. Its most substantial investment so far is Phuc Loc in Tien Giang- one of the largest stopover in the national transport routes, serving over 40,000 passengers a day for all transport routes in the Southwestern.

FUTA Groups has been in the position of an enterprise leading in the field of road passenger transport and has gained prestige from customers. How has FUTA Group explored the freightforwarding sector?

Together with the development of Phuong Trang Bus (FUTA Bus Lines) we could find a vital increasing need to transport "cargo along with passengers" and "cargo without passengers". Therefore we founded FUTA Express - Phuong Trang Express Delivery JSC. To meet customers' requirements, FUTA Express was founded and soon became a prestigious cargo transport agency, supporting customers in trade and personal delivery needs.

FUTA Bus Lines were included in the Top 5 most prestigious passenger transport companies of 2019

Every day we have thousands of vehicles operating nationwide, every 2 to 5 minutes in average there is a bus leaving its station from North to South. Therefore we can ensure all customers’ needs will be met - passengers, cargo and letters - will be rapidly and safely transported.

As requirements for quality service increased along with the number of orders, FUTA Express added trucks of all size together with the professional staff to be deploying on new routes, serving customers with various cargo at various time frame.

In addition to passenger transport, it is known that cargo transport is also a great source of revenue for businesses. So in the next phase of its development, how will FUTA Group set out a development direction in this activity?

With the rapid development of e-commerce today, we realize there is great potential for developing services express delivery and doorto-door delivery. FUTA Express will invest in more shipping offices, vehicles and specialized transport services to ensure the fastest, safest and most convenient service with a variety of goods. FUTA Express is striving to be one of the foremost in the express delivery sector with the coverage of districts and provinces nationwide.

As we are aware that FUTA Group and Hung Thinh Group have a cooperation with Deoca Group in building a chain of stopovers and in developing logistics supply chain whathat are FUTA Group’s expectations from the cooperation?

FUTA Group is already one of the top operations in this country's transport sector; Deoca Group - a leading enterprise in the field of road infrastructure investment, construction and management in Vietnam; Hung Thinh Groupwith it core business of property- has one of the largest land and property portfolio all over the country.

In my experience, “If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together”, the cooperation among FUTA Group, Deoca Group and Hung Thinh Group is a must-do to create an ecosystem- a larger environment in fields of transport - logistics - property.

With this partnership, I expect to have a chain of stopovers with 5-star standards. Besides services of F&B, we also provide entertainment, tourism and hospitality services.

VLR Magazine would like to wish you good health and success in the coming year. We expect FUTA Group will go further and further as well.
