With statistics showing significant jump in parcel delivery volume in ASEAN
Bangkok, Thailand – 27 June 2022: Ninja Van Thailand, Southeast Asia’s leading logistics provider, believes there is great opportunity for SMEs to grow their businesses in the ASEAN region. Delivering around 2 million parcels per day across six countries – Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam, the recent E-commerce Southeast Asia (SEA) Barometer Report 2021 by Ninja Van Group and DPDgroup corroborated the observation of immense e-commerce growth. This is why, Ninja Van Thailand continues to nurture an ecosystem that provides value-added services and tools for big or small shippers alike to support their needs and ensure a seamless hassle free experience.

Vietnam records the highest number of online users with 74% of the sample group. Singapore is 67%; Thailand 63%; Indonesia 62%; Malaysia 61% and Philippines shows the lowest at 48%.
