DHL eCommerce, a division of Deutsche Post DHL Group (DPDHL Group), has enabled Kasemchaifood, one of Thailand's major egg producers, to deliver fresh eggs directly to consumers within 24 hours through e-commerce channels.
Leveraging DHL eCommerce's nationwide delivery network in Thailand, Kasemchaifood has expanded their traditionally B2B wholesale business model to now include online selling, bringing a truly farm fresh product more conveniently to consumers in Thailand.
The Thai egg market is led by a traditionally wholesale model with farm producers supplying major local wholesale markets, grocers and supermarkets and normally taking about 3 to 7 days for a batch of eggs to pass down the supply chain. The market players would also require a sizable minimum order quantity to make a delivery happen. By selling online, Kasemchaifood will now be able to deliver eggs fresher through DHL eCommerce's delivery network to reach the end consumer within 24 hours.
DHL eCommerce worked with Kasemchaifood to design and test shipping packages with protective and shock-resistant packaging. DHL eCommerce Thailand also enabled a last-mile delivery technology platform for Kasemchaifood, making it possible for consumers to track their deliveries from farm to table.
