As a form of support for SMEs, JNE as an expedition company that was founded in 1990 provides special promos for large-volume shipments. This promotion for paying shipping costs according to the weight of the shipment is valid for two months from September 15 to November 15, 2021. Technically, large volume shipments with a maximum dimension of 50 cm x 50 cm x 50 cm will not be subject to volume weight but are calculated according to the original weight of the shipment.
This promo is valid for two types of services, namely Regular and JTR (JNE Trucking). For shipments to and from East Java, Bali, and West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) using the Regular service, while shipments from the destinations of East Java, Bali, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) and Flores Island, East Nusa Tenggara, use the JTR service. The public can get this promo throughout the JNE network in East Java, Bali, West Nusa Tenggara, and East Nusa Tenggara.
Armi Muriko, Regional Sales for East Java, Bali, NTB & NTT said that this promo was one of the responses to requests from JNE customers. "So far, some SMEs expect more competitive shipping costs to be able to market their products outside the region," said Armi. For this reason, this promo is carried out simultaneously in the regional areas of East Java, Bali, NTB & NTT so that SMEs in those areas also experience an increase in transactions. On the other hand, JNE also expects an increase in the tonnage of shipments by 20-30% through this promo.
Armi added that this promo was launched to coincide with the launch of the JNE fleet specifically for Flores Island. "If initially shipments from East Java, Bali, NTB to Flores Island or vice versa had to transit in Denpasar, now there is a fleet with a special route to Flores Island or vice versa," said the man who had served as Head of JNE Branches in Karawang and Batam. That way, the estimated delivery to these areas will be one day faster than usual.
Asrul, an online seller from Sidoarjo, was greatly helped by this promo. The delivery of the product in the form of a helmet which is usually 3 kg in volume is now cheaper with this promo because 1 kg is calculated according to the weight of the helmet. "Cheap shipping costs are one of the considerations for buyers, if the shipping costs are cheap they are also happy because they usually compare the price of goods and the shipping costs," said Asrul. If the product is cheap but shipping costs are expensive, prospective buyers will think again to decide to shop. "Many of my resellers are happy with this promo because it helps increase sales," he added.
The JTR service itself is a special landline service with economical rates because the weight of the shipment is calculated from 10 kg. However, with this promo, JTR fares will definitely be more affordable for the next two months. This promo is also specifically for sellers with direct transactions or through social media platforms and the seller's website itself.
