Bangkok, Thailand – 16 December 2021: Ninja Van Thailand, Southeast Asia’s leading logistics provider, forms a major alliance with the private postal group service under SABUY Group, expanding its network and service channels to include over 8,000 branches from the Group, and providing coverage throughout Thailand. To start the partnership, Ninja Van will start rolling out special promotions for Shipsmile.

In addition, Ninja Van Thailand has also signed an insurance deal with SABUY Maxi to provide coverage for both its personnel and parcels.
Adzim Halim, Country Head of Ninja Van Thailand and Malaysia, said, “Ninja Van Thailand is delighted to partner with the SABUY Group. My first encounter with the Group was the vending machines set up within our distribution centres. We found rather interesting the various businesses with great potential of the SABUY Group ranging from financial transaction service, online top up kiosks, vending machines, food court management system, and retail management system (POS) to parcel delivery post shops which is a solid business that enormously benefits Ninja Van’s customers.”
“That’s the reason why we decided to partner with the SABUY Group. More importantly, we saw the opportunity to expand our networks and increase service channels to enable our customers to enjoy an easier, more convenient and faster parcel delivery service through SABUY Group’s private postal network which comprises 4 brands and 8,000 branches throughout Thailand. We will kickstart our services at Shipsmile, followed by Plus Express, The letter post and Point Express in January 2022.
Narisara Kongcharoensukying, Head of Commercial of Ninja Van Thailand said, “At present, we have a total of 220 parcel delivery PUDO stores in central, western and eastern regions. We are committed to help our customers by providing them with technological support and personal customer service. From this partnership with SABUY Group, aside from greater service accessibility, we anticipate an increase in volume of Ninja Van’s parcel delivery; and we are well prepared to offer the best service at the best rates as a result of our solid express logistics basic structure. For the month of December, customers who use the services of Shipsmile can enjoy special promotions such as a starting delivery price of 16 baht for parcels weighing less than 3 kilos and overall size not exceeding 80 centimetres and long distance deliveries.”
Wirach Morakotkarn, Chief Commercial and Investment Officer of SABUY Technology Public Company Limited added, “In forming a partnership with Ninja Van Thailand we saw the potential in our two companies growing together because SABUY Group has also continuously invested in parcel delivery business.
