DHL Supply Chain Thailand, the global market leader in contract logistics solutions, is partnering with ‘Shopee’, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, to support ‘Shopee 10.10 Brands Festival’. In anticipation of the expected spikes in online sales, DHL Supply Chain will extend its logistics support to include the transportation of large and bulky items directly to its customers.
Kevin Burrell, CEO DHL Supply Chain Thailand Cluster said, “Our partnership with Shopee extends beyond logistics. We see ourselves as a strategic partner who can provide a full range of end-to-end services from warehousing to handling and delivering white goods. With DHL’s innovative technology that is integrated throughout our warehouse and transport services, I am convinced that we are best placed to manage the increased volume with ease and demonstrate our value in ensuring that all of Shopee’s customers receive the best shopping experience.”
E-commerce is fast becoming a popular choice for savvy shoppers in Thailand, who expect to receive their purchases in pristine conditions and on time. The total value of Thailand’s business-to-consumer sector is valued at about USD 5.5 billion this year up by about 14% as compared to 2019. In reports by App Annie, Shopee continued to rank first in the ‘Shopping’ category by downloads in Southeast Asia in Q2 2020, and was among the top three worldwide in the same category.
Eric Bui, Head of Operations, Shopee (Thailand) said, “With online shopping growing day by day in Thailand, it is our priority to consistently provide a seamless shopping experience for our users, from the moment they go online, to the purchase, and then delivery. That is why we teamed up with a world-class expert. DHL’s wealth of experience and innovative systems exceeded our expectations from day one, ensuring that we continue to maintain our good reputation with our users. With the previous Shopee double date campaigns, we encountered a spike in demand but DHL was able to meet our customers’ expectations, which made the campaign a resounding success. They will once again be an important partner for us during the Shopee 10.10 Brand Festival.”
DHL Supply Chain utilizes its expertise to ensure products sold on Shopee are delivered to customers effortlessly. In particular, leading brands on Shopee Mall, which carry many types of products including large and bulky items will benefit from this partnership given that DHL excels in the transportation of such items which require extra care and precision.
Shopee’s 10.10 Brands Festival commences on 21 September and will be ‘live’ until 10 October 2020.
