This action will enable Deliveree’s tech platform to offer broader logistics solutions, extended beyond inland trucking with an inter-island reach supported by the SPIL network of container ships servicing all major ports in Indonesia.” Widarta Liunanda, SPIL Ventures in a statement.
This logistic platform has grown its gross transaction value by 3,2 times and is estimated will exceed USD100 million this year. Also, this technology company has enlarged its team to nearly 500 employees across four countries.
Furthermore, the businesses that employ Deliveree’s services to power their daily cargo shipments and deliveries have reached over 25,000. This robust growth demonstrates the strength of Deliveree’s business model and paints an exciting picture of the future of logistics technology in Southeast Asia.
