About South East Asia Parcels Market: Market Insight Report 2018
Background to the report
South East Asia is a rapidly-developing region with a large and growing population which lies at the centre of key global trading routes.
– As it has become wealthier and infrastructure has improved, online retail has become increasingly important.
– The countries covered in this report have a combined population of 650m and GDP of US$2.7tn.
The markets vary in level of economic development, from wealthy Singapore, with one of the highest global GDP per capita figures, to the emerging economies of Philippines and Vietnam.
Key enabling factors such as quality of transport infrastructure, level of online retail, use of payment systems and availability of broadband also vary significantly.
– The island nations of Indonesia and the Philippines face particular transport challenges which increase logistics costs and complexity.
The markets are served by a combination of
– National post offices (eg SingPost, Post Indonesia)
– Privately owned domestic carriers (GD Express, RPX, JNE, SkyNet, Yamato, Kerry Express, Ninja Van – in which DPD recently took a stake)
– In-house delivery operations of retailers (e.g. Lazada Express)
– Start-up last mile delivery operators (Lalamove, Go-Jek, Honestbee)
– The integrators (UPS, FedEx and DHL)
There are several regional carriers with domestic networks in several countries. Examples include Yamato, which has recently entered Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia, and NinjaVan, which has delivery operations in most countries in the region.
The main focus of the integrators is on international express. However, DHL has entered several domestic markets.
