Global freight transportation specialist Dimerco has commenced operations at Indonesia’s first and only e-commerce Bonded Logistics Centre (BLC). The 10,000+ sq m bonded warehouse is the first of its kind in the region and will provide an integrated, multimodal transport service to customers and deliver significant benefits, including faster eCommerce fulfilment and reduced costs. 

The new facility utilises eCommerce+ for rapid clearance and manages domestic deliveries, typically with a lead time of 1-3 days, compared to direct B2C deliveries where standard lead time is up to 14 days. In a bonded warehouse such as Dimerco’s BLC, B2B2C shipments achieve faster customs clearance and there is no requirement to pay duty and tax in advance, which is a major cash-flow advantage for customers. 

Commenting on the new operation, Dimerco Chief Executive Management Mr. Jeffrey Shih says, “We are proud to be leading the market in providing best-in-class eCommerce fulfilment services in Indonesia. Dimerco is the only logistics company licensed to handle eCommerce cargo in this region and our vision is to provide a ‘one-stop shop’ solution at this first bonded logistics centre.” 

Dimerco will be able to move goods faster than standard B2C eCommerce operations as they will already be in the BLC warehouse ready for local delivery, while fully automated processes ensure maximum efficiency and keep costs low. The BLC operation, which commenced since August, 2019, has now a potential throughput of over 150,000 units per day and is operated with the support of Dimerco’s local strategic partner (Uniair Cargo). 

Dimerco has over 30 years’ experience operating in Indonesia and a strategic partner with a domestic network in including over 100 branches and agents, delivering to more than 3,000 districts and destinations.
