DHL eCommerce, a division of Deutsche Post DHL Group, has expanded its domestic delivery network in Thailand to reach 100% nationwide coverage with DHL-owned network.
Previously, e-tailers had limited options when delivering goods to different provinces in the country. With a limited number of delivery providers with nationwide coverage, e-tailers had to work with multiple service providers to reach their shoppers across various destinations. With its expanded network, DHL eCommerce now provides e-tailers with a truly seamless, reliable and quality nationwide delivery option.
“DHL eCommerce is tremendously upbeat about e-commerce in Thailand and we are committed to further investing in our network, people and service to become the leading domestic delivery provider in Thailand. With our own DHL network across all zipcodes in Thailand, e-tailers will now enjoy global quality delivery standards consistently across Thailand and deliver the smile in the last mile to their shoppers,” said Kiattichai Pitpreecha, Managing Director, DHL eCommerce Thailand.
As part of the government’s ‘Thailand 4.0’ initiative to increase internet adoption and promote e-marketplace and e-payments, sellers in upcountry provinces are encouraged to adopt e-commerce business models for local products and services. DHL eCommerce Thailand is now able to offer pick up services to support merchants in upcountry province on top of nationwide delivery.
“We’ve seen increasing volumes of e-commerce shipments not only from Bangkok but also from other provinces. With Thailand’s e-commerce market set to triple in size by 2020, we want to enable e-commerce for sellers – from Bangkok to upcountry Thailand – and provide them with DHL’s recognized quality for nationwide delivery within Thailand
