Jakarta, Indonesia – J&T Express, the Indonesian-based express logistics company, has announced its market expansion to the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, marking the company’s first presence in the Middle East and making their total served markets to ten.
Currently, J&T Express serves primarily in Asia, namely China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Cambodia, and Singapore.
The expansion was first conceptualized during April 2021, where J&T has established its own nationwide distribution network and localised warehousing system in the UAE and Saudi Arabia respectively, covering all local provinces and regions in the two countries.
In addition, as an integral aspect of its courier service, the UAE and Saudi Arabia versions of the J&T Express mobile application have also been launched simultaneously.
Sean Xiao, head of J&T Express Middle East, said, “We hope that with J&T Express’ efficient and comprehensive delivery network, we can effectively improve the shopping experience of consumers in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, and contribute to the development of the e-commerce industry in both countries.”
Meanwhile, Steven Fan, CEO at J&T Express, commented, “The expansion to the UAE and Saudi Arabia marks an important step for J&T Express in establishing a global delivery network. In the future, the company will actively explore opportunities in emerging markets as part of its global strategy to connect the world with greater efficiency and bring logistical benefits to all.”
The latest endeavor for J&T Express comes after their recent funding round of US$2.5 in November 2021, and their acquisition of China-based logistics solutions provider BEST Express.
