Idea

We operate parcel pickup network consisting of smart lockers and retail shops, which increases the efficiency of last mile delivery courier by 10 times and reduces costs for online merchants/couriers/end-customers.

Current Status

For the sales of solution business (sales of smart lockers), we are currently the number 1 solution provider to postal organizations in Asia in terms of number of tender closed.
For operation of smart lockers business, we already have footprint in 5 regions across the globe (Hong Kong, Italy, Australia, Indonesia and Brazil) and we are the second largest click&collect network (consists of both smart lockers and retail shops) in Hong Kong after SF Express (Largest courier company in China).
For 2020, we have reached almost USD7 million in total revenue and we expect our revenue will maintain a high growth trajectory.

Market

Our end-customers are any customers that can access the internet and shop online.
We are serving in the global last-mile delivery market, and this market is expected to reach 220+ billion of parcel shipping volume by 2026 and USD55.2 billion market size by 2025 (compared to USD30.2 billion in 2018).

Problem or Opportunity

As e-commerce continues to grow quickly, the demand for last-mile logistics has become higher and higher. Traditional home-delivery involves significant cost and inconvenience.

Traditional home-delivery problem
For shoppers: need to be at home to collect parcels, often timing cannot be chosen, high cost
For online merchants: high cost
For couriers: failed deliveries, high cost, low efficiency, Co2 emmission of truck

We see these problems and we believe our click&collect network can solve these problems and customers are willing to pay for our solutions.

Solution (product or service)

Our smart lockers are automated with our software, and are placed in convenient locations where end-customers can pick up their parcels from the lockers 24/7.

Benefits of using our click&collect network
For shoppers: can pick up at their own chosen venue and time, lower cost
For online merchants: lower cost, increase sales
For couriers: eliminate failed deliveries, lower cost, higher efficiency, reduce Co2 emmission

Competitors

In terms of our click&collect delivery platform, our major market is Hong Kong, where we are the second largest click&collect platform behind SF Express (largest courier company in China).
SF Express have over 1,200 click&collect pick up locations in Hong Kong where we have over 500 click&collect pick up locaitons in Hong Kong.

In terms of our sales of smart locker solution business, we are the number 1 smart locker solution provider to postal organization in Asia pacific in terms of number of tenders won.

Advantages or differentiators

Compared to other click&collect network operators, we have our inhouse R&D capability which can continue to upgrade the software services and reduce capital expenditure for lockers. Other click&collect network operators have to rely on their smart locker solution suppliers to maintain and supply their smart locker network.

Finance

Our business can be divided into three revenue streams 1. Click&collect delivery platform 2. Smart locker software & maintenance fee 3. Sales of smart locker hardware

2019 Click&collect delivery platform revenue: USD0.8 million
2019 Smart locker software & maintenance fee: USD1 million
2019 sales of smart locker hardware: USD2.4 million

We expect our revenue can reach USD53.4 million in 2023.

Business model

For our delivery platform services, we are integrated with online merchants and couriers who use and pay for our delivery network comprising of smart lockers and retail shops, where the end-customers can pick up their parcels. We charge our online merchants and couriers a fixed fee per parcel going through our delivery network.

3. Establishing inhouse green delivery team
4. Talent acquisition
