Shipper’s Innovation in Facing Logistics Challenges during the Covid-19 Pandemic
Based on Google’s reports, the gross merchandise value (GMV) of e-commerce in Indonesia increased by 52% from US$35 billion in 2020 to US$53 billion in 2021, making Indonesia’s e-commerce market one of the world’s fastest-growing sectors.
