Jakarta, October 24, 2022 – Entering its fifth year of operation, Shipper as a supply chain enabler-based tech company has strengthened its commitment to creating innovation in the digital logistics and warehousing sector to facilitate business actors in developing their business. To date, Shipper has assisted more than 35,000 online sellers and hundreds of large-scale companies from various industries.
Jessica Hendrawidjaja, Shipper’s CMO, stated, “Since its establishment, Shipper has been consistently filled with the spirit of being ‘Teman Kamu Berjuang’ (Your Comrade-in-Arms) to all Indonesian business actors. Thus, our commitment does not only revolve around business but also our desire to help them reach the next level. We keep on creating innovations through Shipper’s services to simplify the complex and fragmented national logistic and warehousing system which further leads to our goal of advancing many business actors through multiple empowerment programs.”
Shipper’s technological innovation related to third-party logistic (3PL) aggregator has helped MSMEs to save up to 20% of the delivery cost by optimizing order management and delivery route as well as packaging together orders that will be sent to the same destination. Hence, the inter-island logistic cost can remain under control. This sense of efficiency is highly necessary to help achieve the government’s target of lowering logistic costs on the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by up to 17% in 2024.
To achieve cost efficiency, Shipper also brings MSMEs’ goods closer to the markets by managing over 300 smart warehouses in 35 cities across Indonesia, with a total area of more than 500,000 m2. Among others, six warehouses with a total area of 10,000 m2 in Medan, Palembang, Tangerang, Semarang, Surabaya, and Makassar are able to facilitate actors in the industry who own products that must be stored and distributed according to the halal standard.
As the manifestation of its further commitment, Shipper presents the latest digital innovation in the form of Atoor, an Omnichannel Management System (OCMS) application that facilitates business actors in managing their sales activity in the marketplace in a more integrated way. With Atoor, industry actors can customize their product information by changing product descriptions in the marketplace, revising product prices, uploading product images, arranging orders, and managing stock inventory in one platform. Since its release in January 2022, Atoor has connected more than 1,500 online stores and helped hundreds of sellers save more time and resources, allowing them to concentrate on sales and business development.
In terms of MSMEs empowerment, apart from the various programs mentioned above, Shipper also assisted MSMEs to market their products through the ShipFest program. ShipFest serves as a solution for MSMEs to maximize the latest sales trend through live selling. Nowadays, the concept of live selling is undeniably popular as it offers large-scale to small-scale business actors abundant opportunities to interact directly with customers, and at the same time, customers also get the chance to see the products first-hand. Through this approach, new MSME products are able to compete with the existing products in both the domestic and international markets. Not only that, Shipper also optimizes MSMEs’ brand awareness and brand positioning by conducting digital ads promotion with notable Key Opinion Leaders (KOL) in Indonesia.
