Deliveree Logistics Startup Serves Cargo Delivery for 23 Cities of Java Island
Has three thousand active partners with various fleet options, small and large, for B2B users
Deliveree, a logistics startup from Thailand, adds its FTL service (full truck loads) for intercity cargo delivery to 23 cities in Java. This service is a company initiative for B2B users to have more choices of the fleet they need.
“The FTL service is for long-distance delivery (long haul) for our B2B users. In the future we will add various other large size vehicle options, such as tronton and wingbox, so users have many choices,” said Deliveree CEO and Co-Founder Tom Kim, Wednesday (10/10).
Unlike the previous service, FTL charges a fixed price for each city delivery route including all basic costs. Starting from the cost of renting a vehicle, driver, fuel, tolls, and parking. Deliveree's intercity delivery prices are claimed to be an average of 20% -30% below the market price. Take, for example, shipping from Jakarta-Surabaya IDR 5,7 million, Bandung-Semarang IDR 3,5 million, and so on.
This price transparency is to reduce the anxiety of users who want to use FTL services for long-distance deliveries. One truck is only dedicated to one user at a time. Users don't have to worry about the safety of their belongings being mixed with other people's.
Customers can order at least one day in advance up to two weeks in advance, via the Deliveree app or website. Pick up points are in three locations (Jabodetabek, Bandung, and Surabaya) and 23 destination points (including Brebes, Cilegon, Yogyakarta, Subang, Tuban, Solo, and many more).
Tom said that his party has embraced around 7 thousand driver partners, about 3 thousand of whom are active partners. The users have more than 100 thousand people since its first presence in Indonesia in 2015.
Deliveree has a variety of fleets, namely Fuso, Double Engkel Long (CDD Long), Double Engkel, Engkel Box, to smaller fleets such as Small Boxes and Vans.
Tom revealed that Deliveree will officially expand to Vietnam next year. Malaysia is the next country ready to be visited, although Tom is reluctant to reveal details. Slightly delayed from initial target.
“Our focus is to become a regional player in Southeast Asia. Therefore, the countries we will be targeting are all there.”
Deliveree has its head office in Thailand, then expanded to the Philippines and Indonesia. In terms of business contribution, according to Tom, for now, the three are not much different. He predicts that Indonesia will become Deliveree's largest market considering its coverage area is larger than other countries.
For this reason, his party does not only focus on expanding the country but also increasing their presence in the cities where they have been operating. For Indonesia, Deliveree is preparing to enter Bali and Medan.
In order to support all these big plans, Tom opened up the possibility of another fundraising event that will start next year. Lastly, Deliveree accepts Series A investasi investment valued at US$14,5 million in October 2017.
"Fundraising is a common thing that is usually done by technology companies every year to every two years. We last received investment at the end of 2017, if you count timelineyou can conclude for yourself,” concluded Tom.
