Launched in 2016, Shipper offers a suite of logistics solutions like multi-courier shipping, distributed warehousing and fulfilment networks for businesses of all sizes.

Besides that, it also provides a multi-carrier API that allows sellers to manage orders, print shipping labels and get tracking information from multiple providers on their phones.

Last year, Shipper said that its customers saw a surge in shipping accelerated by COVID- 19, leading to increased demand for its services.

“We started the company four years ago as a result of our personal pain points in packing and delivering packages as online sellers. Building Shipper, we have always approached the problem from the angle of a micro, small and medium-sized business because that is who we are. We are excited to play our role in further empowering this segment and strengthening the nation’s logistics
ecosystem,” Shipper co-founder Budi Handoko.

E-commerce has always been a popular sector in Indonesia that saw significant growth since the onset of COVID-19. Other players in the local market are Waresix, SiCepat, Kargo, Ritase, and Logisly, among others.

According to GlobalData, e-commerce sales are estimated to grow by 37.4 per cent, compared to the pre-COVID-19 estimate of 22.2 per cent for the same year.

Amid the crisis, many Southeast Asian logistics-tech companies, such as B2B logistics firm LogislyAndalin, Mycloudfulfillment and Flash Express (both Thailand), and Tramés (Singapore), raised financing.
