Weyland Tech Inc. and ‘Last-Mile’ Delivery Partner, PT Royal Express Indonesia (“REX”) Announce Launch Date of Pilot Program
New York – (NewMediaWire) – January 31, 2019 – Weyland Tech Inc. (WEYL) (“Weyland” or the “Company”) announces update on its strategic partnership with PT Royal Express Indonesia (“REX”) http://www.rex.co.id/id. REX ships approximately 10,000 packages per day, for thousands of Small-Medium sized Businesses (“SMBs”).
In December 2018, the Company signed an agreement with REX to create a cashless option for REX clients by using the eWallet platform.
Weyland is obligated under the agreement to gradually replace the cash-on-delivery facet of the REX business. Currently, REX deliveries are paid for in cash, which is inefficient, insecure and inconvenient. Weyland Tech’s eWallet, AtozPay, will enable the deliveries to be transacted via the smartphone app eliminating cash. REX has indicated that the addition of the Weyland solution will dramatically improve operational efficiencies and expects to achieve well-above market growth rates once fully implemented.
Weyland’s Indonesian entity, WIP, would receive an average of 15% of each delivery fee, which is equivalent to US$0.45-.50, or potentially $1.6 – 2 million in net revenue annually, if our internal targets are met.
Brent Suen, CEO of Weyland, comments, “Having just spent time with the management of REX, and better understanding their plans for growth, combined with the fact that eCommerce in Indonesia is expected to rise eight-fold within the next five years, there is a tremendous opportunity to both positively impact revenues and also layer in higher margin business for our operations in-country. Furthermore, the ability to take this business model into other Southeast Asian countries is validated by our partnership with a well-recognized logistics provider, PT Royal Express Indonesia.”
“As consumers in the US have witnessed with the dramatic proliferation of Amazon, delivery services or ‘last-mile’ solutions have stretched capacity quite thin with Fedex, UPS and the US Postal Service bearing the brunt of the demand. Amazon has turned to contracting out private individuals to make deliveries and this trend continues. Furthermore, the geography and traffic in countries such as Indonesia almost guarantee the upwards momentum in value provided by last-mile solutions,” Suen comments.
The Companies are implementing a pilot program and will launch March 1st, 2019.
