Service points operated by Kerry Express not only provide easy access to deliveries for people residing in the Kingdom but also play an integral part in the company’s O2O (online-to-offline) strategies.

Mr. Warawut explained further, “Online shoppers will soon be able to order products online and choose to self-collect from our offline stores;”

“on the other hand, more than 20% of online sellers coming to our stores today do not go to the counters, they go directly to the self-help kiosk, scan on a QR code provided by the Seller Centers of those leading e-commerce platforms, then they print a shipping label and hand the products to our shop staff without any payment needed. Kerry will do all the back-end clearance with the Seller Centers.”
