Ninja Van Thailand, Southeast Asia’s leading logistics provider, forms a major alliance with the private postal group service under SABUY Group, expanding its network and service channels to include over 8,000 branches from the Group, and providing coverage throughout Thailand. To start the partnership, Ninja Van will start rolling out special promotions for Shipsmile. Other brands will be launched in January next year to further strengthen the express logistics business and in turn fully cater to customers’ requirements. In addition, Ninja Van Thailand has also signed an insurance deal with SABUY Maxi to provide coverage for both its personnel and parcels.
Adzim Halim, Regional Director of Ninja Van Group, said, “Ninja Van Thailand is delighted to partner with the SABUY Group. My first encounter with the Group was the vending machines set up within our distribution centres. We found rather interesting the various businesses with great potential of the SABUY Group ranging from financial transaction service, online top up kiosks, vending machines, food court management system, and retail management system (POS) to parcel delivery post shops which is a solid business that enormously benefits Ninja Van’s customers.”
“That’s the reason why we decided to partner with the SABUY Group. More importantly, we saw the opportunity to expand our networks and increase service channels to enable our customers to enjoy an easier, more convenient and faster parcel delivery service through SABUY Group’s private postal network which comprises 4 brands and 8,000 branches throughout Thailand. We will kickstart our services at Shipsmile, followed by Plus Express, The letter post and Point Express in January 2022.
Narisara Kongcharoensukying, Head of Commercial of Ninja Van Thailand said, “At present, we have a total of 220 parcel delivery PUDO stores in central, western and eastern regions. We are committed to help our customers by providing them with technological support and personal customer service. From this partnership with SABUY Group, aside from greater service accessibility, we anticipate an increase in volume of Ninja Van’s parcel delivery; and we are well prepared to offer the best service at the best rates as a result of our solid express logistics basic structure. For the month of December, customers who use the services of Shipsmile can enjoy special promotions such as a starting delivery price of 16 baht for parcels weighing less than 3 kilos and overall size not exceeding 80 centimetres and long distance deliveries.”
Wirach Morakotkarn, Chief Commercial and Investment Officer of SABUY Technology Public Company Limited added, “In forming a partnership with Ninja Van Thailand we saw the potential in our two companies growing together because SABUY Group has also continuously invested in parcel delivery business. We have altogether 4 brands and more than 8,000 branches and we are delighted that Ninja Van Thailand has become our postal partner in parcel delivery service within the whole SABUY network. Aside from this, Ninja Van Thailand has joined the SABUY Ecosystem via SABUY Maxi, finance broker arm of SABUY, who will present insurance products suitable for Ninja Van staff. SABUY Maxi Insurance Broker Co., Ltd. has divided its insurance plan for Ninja Van Thailand into 2 groups: Corporate business insurance with emphasis on various risks, e.g., risk in Ninja Van’s logistics business, property and warehouse insurance, third party insurance, business interruption insurance, insurance of delivery vehicles, and delivery service insurance to enhance confidence amongst customers. The second group is insurance for Ninja Van staff. SABUY Maxi has drawn up an insurance policy as a special employee welfare for the staff as well as their families including insurance for car (compulsory and voluntary), home, personal accident, cancer amongst others. SABUY Maxi is working in cooperation with various leading insurance companies to provide protection conditions, value insurance premium at special rates, up to 50% savings as well as numerous benefits starting from 1 January 2022.”
