UPS, through its Indonesian joint venture, has entered into an expanded alliance with local domestic courier PT Tiki Jalur Nugraha Eka Kurir (JNE) to extend pickup-and-delivery service for international express packages throughout all of Indonesia. UPS says the alliance expands Indonesian customers’ access to its international express delivery service through JNE’s more than 1,000 centers nationwide; these access points will help Indonesian businesses outside Jakarta and Bali connect to the global UPS network, enhancing their ability to compete globally.

“This new relationship with JNE will further strengthen UPS’s capabilities in Indonesia. With JNE representing UPS nationwide, more Indonesian customers with international express delivery requirements will now have access to UPS’s unparalleled network and innovative technology,” says Craig Foster, vice president, South District, UPS Asia Pacific Region.

UPS has relied on JNE since 2000 to deliver international express packages beyond Jakarta and Bali. The new agreement will see JNE marketing, picking up and delivering UPS packages Indonesia-wide. “JNE is extremely pleased to enter into this alliance with UPS, which will benefit our customers in Indonesia and will allow them access to premium international delivery services,” the company says.

UPS began its services in Indonesia in 1988 and since has grown to become a single source for Indonesian businesses for their express delivery services. With headquarters in Jakarta, UPS has more than 200 staff in Indonesia and has seven operating facilities nationwide. UPS operates in the country through a venture known as PT UPS Cardig International.
