Global logistics service provider J&T Express will be partnering with category classifieds and recommerce marketplace Carousell Singapore, to provide convenient delivery services for both sellers and buyers.
The partnership with J&T Express Singapore is Carousell Singapore’s first exclusive integration of a logistics service provider into its platform and will leverage on J&T Express’s experience from working with other e-commerce partners.

He continued by saying “Our goal at Carousell is to make transacting in a secondhand marketplace as convenient and trusted as any e-commerce platform, so that secondhand can truly be the first choice.”
Through J&T Express Singapore, all Carousell sellers will have access to fully-integrated pick-up service options featured directly on the item’s listing page through an API integration which was developed for this partnership according to a statement by the brand.
The shipping services for Carousell sellers include flexible doorstep pick-ups, the option to consolidate multiple orders into one pick-up arrangement and insurance of parcels.
"We are honoured to be the first delivery partner exclusively integrated into Carousell Singapore’s platform, and this is in line with our aim to expand our network and support more local users to fulfil their logistic needs," said Tracy Liu, sales and marketing director at J&T Express Singapore.
As part of this collaboration, customers are also promised and affordable and reliable delivery services with real-time tracking and tracing to achieve a more flexible and simplified delivery process.
