The Association of Indonesian Express Delivery Service Companies (Asperindo) West Java held a grand meeting of members at the El Royal Hotel Bandung on February 23, 2022. This event aims to consolidate the internal organization after almost two years of not meeting the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Attended by more than 100 members, this event was also used as a forum for socialization related to changes in shipping service company licensing and the relationship between OSS and Kominfo and this industry. The members were also given the opportunity to express their aspirations, especially the current condition of the post-pandemic courier business.
“Almost 80% of West Java last year was filled with e-commerce goods. So, thank God, in this pandemic situation, we can quite get an abundance of delivery, because we know the pandemic has made more people at home,” said Rama Wijaya, Chairman of DPW Asperindo Jabar explaining the current condition of the courier business.
According to him, the increase in demand for courier services is proportional to the increase in the e-commerce business which has penetrated up to 400%. Even so, he did not deny that there were members who were affected and had to close the company, especially courier companies that had not yet entered the e-commerce market.
Some members who are affected are on average because they have not digitized their business processes, so many customers have switched. “Currently, customers want to know the position of the goods ordered from the marketplace, the goods are sent until they are received. This is what my friends didn’t anticipate yesterday,” he continued.
Therefore, he continued, business digitization is an important moment in the courier business in order to remain competitive. This has also been a consideration for Asperindo Jabar since 2019 collaborating with PT EasyGO Indonesia (EasyGO), a TMS (Transportation Management System) service provider company.
“We have experienced since 2006 focusing on providing services and solutions for TMS. EasyGO’s services and solutions have many features, including real-time vehicle tracking using GPS technology,” said Rangki Riawan, EasyGO Account Manager for the West Java area.
He added, EasyGO also features fleet management, driver management, route management, delivery orders and maintenance control. For information, apart from being supported by EasyGO, this event is also supported by BUMIDA Insurance (Bumiputra Muda), JNE Ekspress and Astra Isuzu.
