With the exponential growth of e-commerce due to technology and the Covid-19 pandemic, J&T Express Philippines commended the opening of a new era of aviation courier services by J&T Express Indonesia as the latter unveiled one of its seven all-cargo aircraft dedicated to enhancing the company’s logistics services while reducing transportation costs. The ceremony was held at the Budiarto Airport in Tangerang City, Indonesia, on March 18, 2021.
The leased Boeing 737-300 aircraft has a maximum capacity of 15 tons and aims to mainly serve the Jakarta-Medan and Jakarta-Batam-Tanjung Pinang cargo routes, with at least two flights a day. According to the J&T Express Group, the deployment of an all-cargo charter model in Indonesia will greatly reduce air transportation costs, increase air transportation capacity, and establish stable and efficient air transportation services.
Established in 2015, J&T Express helped Indonesia enter the era of same-day delivery. J&T Express's high-end aircraft are loaded and unloaded on the same day, while inter-island express mail except for Jawa, is delivered the next day. With the addition of dedicated air freight, J&T Express customers can expect faster delivery times.
Vice President of J&T Express Philippines Zoe Chi sees the addition of dedicated air freight as a significant upgrade, “We are constantly expanding our reach, updating our roster of quality courier services, and maximizing technology to make operations safe, efficient, reliable, and customer-oriented to cater to the diverse needs of Filipinos,” Chi said.
J&T Philippines has been providing logistics services to Filipinos since 2019 and is quickly becoming a key player in e-commerce delivery. “As part of the J&T Express global brand, we applaud J&T Indonesia’s initiatives to provide faster and better services to its customers,” Chi said.
J&T Express Philippines currently has 600 branches with free pick-up services and caters to almost every province in the country 365 days a year even on holidays. Customers can easily track their packages in real-time via J&T’s service platforms: mobile application, website, hotline, and social media.
