In 2020, the volume of domestic cargo transportation at 20 AP II airports was cumulatively recorded at 427,948 tons or an increase of 5.27%, compared to 2019 before the pandemic of 406,494 tons.

Meanwhile, during January-October 2022, the volume of domestic cargo reached 461,102 tons, up 2.91 percent compared to the previous year. The increase in cargo volume is in line with the development of SMEs in the country.
Responding to this, Rifani Budi Kristanto, Head of Corporate Sales and Fulfillment Ninja Xpress said: “The potential for cargo services in Indonesia is very large and will continue to grow with Indonesia’s economy. SMEs often encounter obstacles in terms of cargo delivery, such as high logistics rates, limited access to distribution channels, and inefficient delivery. For this reason, Ninja Cargo is here as a solution for shipping goods in large quantities and sizes. With an extensive distribution network, Ninja Cargo enables cargo shipments to be more effective where the shipping SLA remains the same as Regular shipping.”
As Ninja Cargo uses the same fleet as the Ninja Regular service, so it has the same Service Level Agreement (SLA) with the regular. That way, SMEs can ship large quantities of goods throughout Indonesia with the same shipping estimates as regular shipments. To make it easier for shippers, the Ninja Cargo payment system can also be done by COD (Cash On Delivery).
Andi Djoewarsa, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Ninja Xpress said: “We are committed to continuously improving the efficiency of cargo delivery in Indonesia. With the Ninja Cargo service, we are ready to provide reliable, efficient, and affordable logistics solutions for shippers throughout Indonesia. In addition, the presence of Ninja Cargo is also expected to be able to meet the increasing demand for cargo services in line with the growing logistics industry in Indonesia.”
