The Asia Pacific e-commerce and retail market has seen to an unprecedented boom in recent years, buoyed by the rise of Asian middle class spending, deeper internet penetration, an ever growing supply of new e-commerce players and logistics providers within the ecosystem. Total revenue from B2C e-commerce in the six largest Southeast Asian countries (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam) reached $7 billion in 2013. This is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 37.6 percent to reach $34.5 billion by 2018.
Logistics providers are reinventing themselves with a greater emphasis on operational localisation, faster shipping, integrated tracking and real-time updates on deliveries across multiple supply chain points to stay competitive. From a symbiotic perspective, maintaining the delicate balance between consumer expectations, new technology integration and evolving operational complexities is vital to growth and survival for both logistics and e-commerce players alike.
