Heading the direction addressing of this matter that has been bugging the startup, EasyParcel is the first web based courier delivery platform and e-commerce shipping solution provider in Southeast Asia. easyParcel provides web-based courier services that allow users to check for delivery rates and book for delivery services from multiple courier companies in Malaysia.
“EasyParcel is like booking.com for hotels. We are for courier services,” Clement Chau, Operation Manager of Exabytes Venture told us.
EasyParcel is co-founded by Chan Kee Siak (founder of Exabytes Network) and Clarence Leong (founder of EziVoucher). EasyParcel had a Beta launched in the late April 2014 and a soft launch on June 2014. During the soft launch, they managed to attract a few thousand early bird registrations and grow its customer base by over 150%!
“We understand that high shipping cost will turn your customers away while the normal mail service will take a long time to reach your buyer. Most of the courier companies require company registration, office address and a monthly committed volume in order to use their services,” Clement informed us. To counter these complications, easyParcel provides an easy solution to it by doing everything online.
“Process flow of getting something done has been evolved simpler especially with the introduction of the generation Y that are born closely connected with the IT era,” he added.
So if you have a parcel booked on Monday, it will be collected by the courier service the next day and your receiver will be able to get hold of the parcel on Wednesday, simple as that. Plus, sender will be able to choose multiple courier services in a single order and also track all shipments at a glance.
I inquired how EasyParcel maintain the competitive advantage of its collaborated courier partners since they all provide the same service. Clement kindly explained that:
“We work very closely with every each of the courier partners, as every each of them are good in specific areas of the business such as location, service provided, same day pick up & delivery, specific time delivery, cold chain delivery and etc.”
“Sourcing for competitive shipping rate and secure delivery service for buyer can be very challenging,” he added.
“From local postal services to snail mail; from snail mail to next day international deliveries; and further down to Cash On Deliveries; Food and Beverages deliveries to your door steps just at your fingertips. Is this the final destination of the evolution? The answer is NO, that’s why we are so passionate about what we are doing now in bringing everything to the next level.”
EasyParcel has been nominated in the MSC Malaysia APICTA awards and has been invited as an exhibitor at Web Summit held early November this year in Dublin, Ireland. In addition, they have emerged as one of top 20 award winner for the Cradle Coach & Grow Programme. Despite the growth of the company, easyParcel continues to give back to the community. For example, they participated in a CSR project at the Penang International Science Fair 2014 where they educated children on how to make a delivery on a mini Segway, sponsored by Leadway Malaysia.
EasyParcel provides the convenience of e-commerce to its users. Merchants will no longer need to waste time or to be stuck in the traffic on the way to post office or having to wait in a long queue. Time is cut off from writing air way bills too. With easyParcel, everything is automated and it saves a lot of time so that merchants can focus more on their sales and marketing. Besides that, they can expect a huge cost save when they start to top up and use easyParcel.
