Shippit, an ecommerce fulfilment tech company, is partnering with Janio, FedEx, and Qxpress as part of its effort to scale up its operations in Southeast Asia.
These partnerships will help Shippit strengthen its domestic delivery network in Singapore and Malaysia, and its partnership with Janio will allow it to open up delivery lanes with special rates in Southeast Asia, China, and the US. This allows merchants access to ship to more countries than before at lower costs.
Moreover, partnering with Qxpress improves Shippit’s reliability and flexibility in domestic deliveries by offering new delivery options such as "same-day delivery" in Singapore such that parcels reach end customers quickly.
With approximately 40 million new users in Southeast Asia going online due to the pandemic, ecommerce spend has surged – the industry is currently valued at US$62 billion and is expected to grow to US$172 billion by 2025.
To support the increasing number of merchants moving online, Shippit has also added new integrations with ecommerce platforms such as WooCommerce and Magento to support a wider variety of merchants. WooCommerce and Magento join existing partner Shopify, allowing merchants a seamless integration with the Shippit platform.
"Shippit wants to be the platform for growing, scaling and enterprise merchants across the region to support fulfilment and enable more last-mile choices. It's critical that we continue investing in carrier integrations, product enhancements that benefit our merchants to capitalise on this growth in the region. These recent carrier deals expand our network capability providing more domestic and international services to our growing merchant base,” said Mark Lancaster, Southeast Asian Business Development Lead at Shippit.
