aCommerce Opens 17 New Hubs in Indonesia in 3 Months

aCommerce is launching 17 hubs across Indonesia to shorten the last mile process and cut down cash-on-delivery reconciliation by half. The first hub launched in February earlier this year and now 14 hubs are officially active.

The active centres expands the company’s rural presence allowing COD funds to be transferred within a day, 3 more on the way.

Prior to the launches, 89% of products delivered were handled by third party logistics services, prolonging the delivery time for customers due to the separation and rerouting of orders to different cities. There have been 75,000 orders processed by the hubs in June alone, which highlights the need for them in cities such as Jakarta, Medan and Jayapura.
