E-commerce faces more than just transportation problems in Southeast Asia. In order to remain competitive, companies need to optimize their inventory and work with the right logistics partners to ensure that users receive the right products in the shortest possible time.
The urbanization process and the development of urban centers have created new opportunities for e-commerce.

Other countries have said that despite the rapid growth of the middle class in the region, most consumers have difficulty accessing credit and banking services.
