The J&T Express Group unveiled its first all-cargo Boeing 737-300 aircraft during a flight ceremony at Budiarto Airport in Tangerang, Indonesia last week.
"As part of the J&T Express global brand, we applaud J&T Indonesia’s initiatives to provide faster and better services to its customers,” J&T Express Philippines vice president Zoe Chi said.
“We are constantly expanding our reach, updating our roster of quality courier services, and maximizing technology to make operations safe, efficient, reliable, and customer-oriented to cater to the diverse needs of Filipinos,” she added.
Chi said the addition of dedicated air freight was a significant upgrade amid efforts to enhance the company’s logistics services while reducing transportation costs.
The leased Boeing 737-300 has a maximum capacity of 15 tons and aims to mainly serve the Jakarta-Medan and Jakarta-Batam-Tanjung Pinang cargo routes, with at least two flights a day.
According to the J&T Express Group, the deployment of an all-cargo charter model in Indonesia will greatly reduce air transportation costs, increase air transportation capacity, and establish stable and efficient air transportation services.
In the Philippines, J&T has been providing logistics services to Filipinos since 2019 and is quickly becoming a key player in e-commerce delivery.
J&T Express Philippines currently has 600 branches with free pick-up services and caters to almost every province in the country 365 days a year, even on holidays.
Customers can easily track their packages real-time via J&T’s service platforms: mobile application, website, hotline, and social media.
