Ninja Van, a logistics provider which operates in Southeast Asia (SEA), is extending its multi-year collaboration with Google Cloud to help businesses of all sizes seize digital growth opportunities and overcome supply chain disruptions.
By running its platform and applications on Google Cloud’s scalable, secure and open-source infrastructure, Ninja Van aims to strengthen its last-mile courier services and expand upstream into supply chain management solutions.
Backed by the likes of Europe’s largest parcel delivery network GeoPost / DPDgroup and global investment firm B Capital, Ninja Van has operations in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines. It serves close to two million businesses and handles around two million parcels daily across SEA. To facilitate onshore or nearshore production and distribution for businesses in the region, Ninja Van recently launched Ninja Direct, a procurement concierge that offers services like supplier sourcing and management, customs clearance, financing, and shipments tracking.
“With disruptions to the traditional flow of raw materials and finished goods, there’s also an urgent need for adaptive micro supply chains that allow businesses to ‘make where they sell’ and fulfill orders quicker,” said Shaun Chong, co-founder and CTO, Ninja Van. “We chose Google Cloud because of its proven ability to help us scale reliably and innovate at high velocity, as we address the region’s end-to-end logistics management needs.”
