Ace Turtle, an omni-channel e-commerce platform, has partnered with CEVA Logistics to manage global freight forwarding for international brands using the platform’s cross-border solution in Southeast Asia.
Ace Turtle operates its proprietary platform, Rubicon, which integrates offline and online channels automating omni-channel fulfilment for international brands.
The cross border solution will enable brands to reach new customers in newer geographies where the local customers can shop within the same ecosystem of e-commerce which they are used to.
On the other hand, CEVA will handle international air-freight service, local transportation in origin and destination countries and manage custom clearance for the international brands.
Under the agreement, CEVA will provide international freight forwarding services for the following countries, US-Singapore, China-Singapore, China-India, India-Singapore, India-Malaysia, and subsequently from Europe to APAC region.
“In Southeast Asia, cross border e-commerce has a significant contribution in the total e-commerce sales. With the launch of Cross Border solution, our solution is now complete for Southeast Asia. Through our platform, brands will be able to expand their reach in Southeast Asia,” said Nitin Chhabra, CEO, Ace Turtle.
Backed by Singapore-based Vertex Ventures and C31 Ventures, the venture capital arm of Capitaland, Ace Turtle’s technology helps reduce the costs and complexity of omni-channel transformation for enterprise retail clients by using the existing framework of their legacy system.
