Cainiao, the logistics arm of Alibaba Group Holding Limited, has announced the launch of its first warehouse, Delta Mas Logistics Park, in Jakarta, Indonesia, as part of its regional cHub expansion plan. The new Delta Mas Logistics Park is part of a regional warehouse network of Cainiao Hubs or cHubs in Southeast Asia and is the third warehouse in the network.

Situated in GIIC Deltamas Cikarang, Bekasi Regency, east of Jakarta, the project has a total land area of 320,000 square meters and encompasses six warehouses spanning 170,000 square meters. To integrate sustainability initiatives into the project, skylights were incorporated into the rooftops of all six warehouses, which facilitate normal operations during daylight hours without artificial lighting, thereby reducing energy consumption for tenants. The project also factored in local climate characteristics and implemented a natural ventilation system within the warehouse. Here, ventilation louvres are installed on the roof to utilize air convection to dissipate indoor heat, ensuring a comfortable environment and achieving energy-saving objectives.

It is strategically located near factories to support the local manufacturing industry. The vision is for Delta Mas Logistics Park to pave the way for future full chain capabilities to support manufacturers for their logistics and trading needs, such as fulfilment and sorting for local deliveries, import and export for B2B and B2C businesses, smart supply chain management, and logistics technology such as IoT, automation and warehouse management systems (WMS).

Before the official launch, the project received strong interest from local businesses and achieved a 75 per cent occupancy rate. Tenants include PT Senopati Fujitrans Logistic Services (Senfu), PT SGMW Indonesia (Wuling Indonesia), CJ Logistics, Klog, Haier and Lazada.

“We have witnessed immense potential in the Southeast Asian region and have been actively investing in expanding our warehouse network to cater to local businesses’ needs. We are thrilled to announce this new warehouse, our first infrastructural investment in Indonesia and third in the region. Our strong network and expertise in logistics and supply chain capabilities will help our partners and customers in Indonesia accomplish more in less time and boost local and regional trade activities by streamlining workflows and processes across the value chain,” said Eric Xu, Vice President of Cainiao Group.

According to the World Economic Forum, there are more than 62 million small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Indonesia. Additionally, eCommerce revenue in Indonesia is expected to reach US$44.81 billion in 2023 and grow at 10.44 per cent annually to reach US$66.66 billion in 2027. This indicates strong potential and demand for reliable warehousing capabilities to support the rapid eCommerce growth and rising customer expectations for fast and affordable deliveries.

This news comes after Cainiao’s announcement back in late 2021 to roll out a regional warehouse network in Southeast Asia to support local B2B and B2C businesses. Across the network in Southeast Asia, Cainiao cHubs are strategically located near key transportation nodes and manufacturing hubs to boost their physical connectivity to global markets, which safeguards the trade ecosystem for partners and customers and ensures a resilient supply chain.

In addition to the Indonesia cHub, Cainiao’s smart infrastructure business is expanding its overseas cHub warehouse network in Thailand and Vietnam. In the future, Cainiao’s smart infrastructure business will continue to leverage its experience in global logistics infrastructure services to provide integrated logistics infrastructure networks and digital asset management services to global customers through the tripartite asset management operating system – ‘Cainiao Win’.
