DHL eCommerce, a division of global logistics company, Deutsche Post DHL Group, has expanded its operations into Thailand and is offering end-to-end domestic delivery service for Thai e-commerce merchants. With its new service, DHL eCommerce is offering a range of unique service options that caters to Thailand’s burgeoning e-commerce market.
“Thailand, with its tremendous growth potential, fast e-commerce adoption and high smartphone penetration rates, has been identified as the first Southeast Asian country to launch DHL eCommerce’s domestic delivery service in line with our group’s Strategy 2020,” said Thomas Kipp , CEO, DHL eCommerce.
“The Thai e-commerce market is expected to more than triple in size to EUR 3.6 billion between now and 2020 and with this investment, we are well positioned to support the growth of e-commerce businesses in Thailand.”
Noting that a strong backbone for e-commerce growth lies in a good logistics system, DHL eCommerce said it aims to enable a better e-commerce experience for both consumers and merchants through efficient logistics and a seamless online shopping experience. Major additions will be made to DHL’s delivery infrastructure in the country, including a 3,000 sqm central distribution centre in Bangkok and a network of over 20 depots located throughout Thailand ensuring full coverage across the entire country.
