Jakarta, 29April 2019 — Tech-enabled express logistics company Ninja Van and Grab Inc. (“Grab”), Southeast Asia’s leading super app, today announced a strategic partnership that will see Ninja Van’s logistics services integrated on the Grab app via GrabExpress, Grab’s on-demand parcel and courier delivery service.
By bringing together two leading logistics solutions providers in Southeast Asia through the Grab app, the partnership aims to better serve the needs of small- and medium-businesses, social commerce sellers and consumers. Ninja Van’s logistics services will be available on the Grab app via GrabExpress in the second quarter of this year. The service will be rolled out in phases across the region.
The regional partnership expands GrabExpress’s delivery services beyond its current on-demand and same-day parcel and courier delivery service to include more options like nationwide scheduled deliveries. It also enlarges GrabExpress’s regional coverage significantly to allow for inter-city deliveries. GrabExpress is currently available in 150 cities across Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia. GrabExpress, a rapidly growing business within Grab’s super app ecosystem, allows consumers, e-commerce platforms and social commerce sellers to send and receive parcels easily. From March 2018 till December 2018, GrabExpress grew instant and same-day delivery volumes by more than three times.
Ninja Van is Southeast Asia’s fastest growing last-mile logistics company, serving e-commerce businesses of all sizes. Covering more than 450 cities across the region, Ninja Van connects sellers and shoppers with its own extensive nationwide networks spanning six countries – Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia. This regional partnership with Grab will allow Ninja Van to make its services available to Grab’s large user base in these countries, especially small- and medium-sized sellers and social selling communities. Users will soon be able to ship parcels easily from within a single app and enjoy an unparalleled delivery experience with the benefits of both convenience and greater reach across the Ninja Van network.
“We’re excited about this partnership and how it will change the game for smaller businesses and social selling communities in Southeast Asia, even for consumers who may send parcels from time to time,” said Mr Lai Chang Wen, Co-Founder and CEO, Ninja Van. “By leveraging Grab’s wide user base, we can offer users the most convenient way to access our full suite of logistics services, and provide reliable, hassle-free delivery services powered by technology.”
“As e-commerce and social commerce become increasingly ubiquitous in Southeast Asia, Grab is committed to enabling millions of e-commerce micro-entrepreneurs scale their businesses across the region via GrabExpress. This partnership with Ninja Van enables us to offer the widest range of delivery options in Southeast Asia from within the Grab app, and make it easy for sellers, buyers and merchants to send and receive parcels,” said Adelene Foo, Head of GrabExpress.
As part of the strategic partnership, Grab has invested in Ninja Van.
