J&T Express announced today it is ensuring next-day delivery for local consumers and enabling greater domestic connectivity by launching its first dedicated cargo-only aircraft in Indonesia. The move is part of the companies ongoing commitment to providing efficient, secure and quality express services.

Founded in 2015 in Indonesia, J&T Express is one of Southeast Asia’s fastest-growing e-commerce logistics companies. Present in eight markets across Southeast Asia and China, the company has a fleet size of over 8,000 vehicles and over 10,000 collection points and has more new services planned with the aim of providing faster delivery options to support the increase in demand for both local and cross-border shipping.

The new all-cargo aircraft is a Boeing 737-300 and holds a capacity of up to 15 tons. With at least two flights per day, the 737-300 will service the Jakarta-Medan and Jakarta-Batam-Tanjung Pinang cargo routes and will be launched at Budiarto Airport in Indonesia’s Tangerang City.

The new aircraft will allow J&T express to provide Indonesian consumers with improved delivery services, enabling faster and more reliable delivery service, including next-day delivery to all cities and islands in Indonesia. Previously the company had relied on chartering planes in order to support its growing customer base.

“At J&T Express, we are always committed to bringing the best possible delivery services to our customers. The expansion of J&T Express’ fleet to include an all-cargo aircraft in Indonesia demonstrates our commitment to constantly invest in growing our network. This new addition to our fleet will help our e-commerce players meet the needs of consumers efficiently and enable consumers to enjoy a seamless and quality delivery experience,” said Andrew Sim, CEO of J&T Express Singapore.

“On behalf of the J&T Express Singapore team, we would like to congratulate the J&T Express Indonesia team and Robin Lo, CEO of J&T Express Indonesia, on this key milestone of successful deploying our first all-cargo aircraft, and we look forward to more exciting things to come as we continue to expand our presence regionally.”
