Online shopping is growing more popular, even skyrocketing, every day, since technology makes everything easierand therefore makes e-commerce more accepted by consumers.
Positive welcome from consumers is reflected in e-commerce transaction value that has doubled in the lasttwo years.
In 2014, e-commerce transaction value reached $12 million or Rp150 trillion (assuming that $1 equals Rp13,000), Communications and Informatics Minister Rudiantara said as retrieved from the Communications and Informatics Ministry’s official website.
In 2016, Indonesia’s e-commerce trade value hit $24.6 billion or Rp319.8 trillion, according to the research from Center of Reform on Economics (CORE) as quoted by “Gadgetlive”.
The goods, of values that continue to double in 2017, do not arrive at buyers’ hand in the blink of an eye. There’s a role that logistics companies play behind the trillion-rupiah trade.
Sea transport modes, trains, airplanes, and land transport modesare used to deliver those goods to the buyers’ doorstep.Delivery cars are used every day to take packages from warehouses.
To fulfill the needs of delivery, companies like SELOG, a subsidiary of PT SerasiAutoraya (SERA), offerprofessional logistics service. SELOG offers guarantee of safe, secure, and on-time delivery.
Moreover, business players can also use warehouse and yard management service from SELOG. SELOG implements Warehouse Management System to trace packages continuously from receiving, picking up, delivering, tocompleting the order.
business is getting more enticing as business players now enjoy easier access
to renting places, renting cars to transport their goods which can save
maintenance cost, and other facilities that entrepreneurs would find useful.
Thus, that’s the role logistics and land transportation play after we buy products online: ensuring us receive our goods in a short time.
