Key Market Trends

The growth of e-commerce has opened up opportunities for many logistics companies for providing delivery services. E-commerce is rapidly growing in the country driven by the growth of information and communication technology, rising middle-class population and smartphone penetration. For instance, JNE express, one of the leading courier companies in the country has captured the big opportunity in e-commerce business which accounts for almost 60-70% of its shipments.

Digitization is also enabling the consumers to reach the global markets promoting cross-border e-commerce and driving the international CEP market. Some brands are looking at cross-border e-commerce operating model instead of setting a local business owing to the hassle involved in importing and customs clearance which makes it costly, time consuming, and effort intensive.

• Pos Indonesia plans to make significant investment, especially in processing centers and storage capacity. Its storage capacity was around 40,000 square meter in November 2016, and the company is considering expanding to 500,000 square meters, by 2019-2020.
• For one of the most-established local companies in the logistics industry, around 60% of about 600,000 daily deliveries are from the retail e-commerce market.
Companies are currently optimistic about the government’s commitment toward improving infrastructure. Therefore, significant investments are being made across the value chain. Lazada occupies a key market in Indonesia. It is one of the most significant e-commerce companies in the ASEAN region, along with companies, like Shopee, and it currently operates a 30,000 square meter warehouse in Indonesia. Lazada began its operations with a 2,000 square meter warehouse in 2012, and was acquired by Alibaba (83% stake). Lazada was valued at over USD 3 billion, as of June 2017, and its revenue crossed USD 1 billion in the third year of its operation.

Presence of large number of SMEs and their Digitization presents an Opportunity for CEP Market

Indonesia has a large number of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). SMEs play an important role in economic growth and they account for nearly 97% of domestic employment and for 56% of total business investment in Indonesia. The macroeconomic conditions of the country are supportive of the development of SMEs. Also, the young and increasing population, sizeable domestic market, and abundant natural resources also support their growth. The growth in SMEs coupled with rise in trade activities help the courier and express industry to grow.

Many micro small and medium enterprises are also expanding in the form of e-commerce trading. According to industrial sources, only 18% of Indonesian SMEs are currently engaged in e-commerce through the use of a website or social media, and only 9% adopt more sophisticated e-commerce strategies. This scenario represents the potential for SMEs to expand their businesses in the future and significant opportunities present for the courier companies. The turnover of SMEs can double if they go digital by adopting software to increase operational efficiency and applying different marketing techniques for selling goods.

In 2018, PT Citra Van Titipan Kilat (TIKI) expanded its business in the market of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), by participating as the only official shipping partner of International Handicraft Trade Fair (Inacraft).
