Lazada moves warehouse operations to SingPost's regional logistics hub
ONLINE shopping portal Lazada has moved its warehouse operations to SingPost Regional eCommerce Logistics Hub in Tampines, so that the two companies can tap each other's strengths to meet rising e-commerce demand in South-east Asia.
The combination of strengths in e-commerce and logistics will enable both companies - which have each received investment from China's Alibaba - to be in a leading position in the industry to serve a wider spectrum of customers in Singapore and the region, they said in a press release.
The SingPost Regional eCommerce Logistics Hub integrates both warehousing and delivery hub capabilities within one building, enabling SingPost to provide Lazada faster turnaround time.
Alexis Lanternier, CEO of Lazada Singapore, said moving Lazada Singapore's warehouse operations to the SingPost hub was a "next natural step".
"This also adequately prepares us for the Great Singapore Sale starting June 6, and we are bringing in more brands than ever before, local and global," he added. "Customers can shop more with the confidence that their orders will be processed and delivered faster."
SingPost executive vice-president Sam Ang said the collaboration will result in scale and efficiencies for both companies.
