Courier companies raise more revenue, hire new workers amid pandemic

first_img“We always make preparations every time we enter a peak season, including hiring new people to anticipate a surge so that we can provide our best service to customers,” Elena told The Jakarta Post via text message on June 19.Delivery companies have managed to book growth amid the pandemic-induced economic downturn because citizens are staying at home to comply with regional administrations’ large-scale social restrictions.Online sales volume were almost five times higher in April than January, with food and beverage products leading the surge, according to data from Statistics Indonesia (BPS).Courier company PT Tiki Jalur Nugraha Ekakurir (JNE), which operates 6,000 service centers nationwide, also booked increases in revenue and delivery, according to Eri Palgunadi, the company’s marketing vice president. With more and more consumers moving from offline to online shopping, courier companies have seen increased business delivering goods amid the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, especially during the Ramadan and Idul Fitri celebrations.Courier service company PT Global Jet Express, which owns the J&T Express brand, reports that its delivery volume was higher by 15 percent amid the COVID-19 pandemic compared with normal times, according to Elena, the company’s public relations executive.During Ramadan alone, J&T Express, which has more than 4,000 operating points nationwide, saw its delivery volume surge by 50 percent from a year earlier. The firm regards the Islamic holy month as its annual peak season. Since the start of the year, JNE recorded a 20 percent increase in the number of deliveries. The firm handled the surging demand with its existing 40,000 workforce without hiring new staff, despite longer delivery times to some places.JNE has also been operating with some adjustments, including implementing COVID-19 safety protocols and temporarily suspending its overnight-delivery service in some areas.“We remain optimistic that we can consistently grow by 30 percent this year like the previous years,” Eri told the Post via text message on June 19. “But the impact of the pandemic, or ‘new normal’, is still dynamic. We continue trying our best to do everything normally while monitoring the latest developments.”Mohamad Feriadi, the chairman of the Indonesian Express Couriers Association (Asperindo), which represents over 300 companies across the country, said on June 19 that while staying at home, people were buying staple, household needs and medicines through the internet and this benefited courier companies with a business-to-consumer (B2C) business model.The government’s ban on the mudik (Idul Fitri exodus), when around 18 million people normally travel to their hometowns to celebrate the holiday, also raised delivery volumes as people shipped gifts to their families, he added.“Delivery companies are basically inside the e-commerce ecosystem,” Feriadi said in a phone interview. “Those providing B2C services are unlikely to have seen a decline in delivery volumes.”But firms providing business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-government (B2G) services are worse off, according to him. Many non-essential businesses stopped shipping products as they suspended operations and factories did not function at maximum capacity, causing courier companies’ revenues to fall.Losses at firms with B2B and B2G business models led the warehouse and courier service industry to contract by 0.73 percent year-on-year in the first quarter of 2020, data from BPS show.Topics :last_img read more

Cape Town refurbishes thousands of community flats

first_img24 March 2015The refurbishment of about 7 000 community residential units owned by the Cape Town was on verge of being completed, the city said on the eve of Human Rights Day.It said the massive programme had been symbolic of the administration’s efforts to bring about redress by investing in the maintenance of infrastructure in previously under-invested areas and improving the lives of our more vulnerable residents.Cape Town was proud to have reached this milestone, especially as an ode to Human Rights Day on 21 March.Its investment in the upgrade of its rental stock, housing some of its most vulnerable residents, had also led to the creation of more than 14 900 job opportunities thus far, while approximately R1.25-billion had been spent on this project since it was launched in 2008.Approximately 93% of the units identified for upgrade have been completed.“This project is intricately linked to improving service delivery to our more vulnerable residents,” said the mayoral committee member for human settlements, Benedicta van Minnen. “When service delivery is improved, living conditions are improved. Ensuring dignity is a core value enshrined within our Constitution, and even though this was a difficult process, the city of Cape Town is committed to delivering to all.“This achievement is our tangible tribute to Human Rights Day and we will continue to do everything in our power to protect this right.”Most of Cape Town’s rental blocks of flats are more than 30 years old, and the city says quality is a priority when it comes to the rental unit upgrades. Each rental unit has to pass several stringent quality checks before various levels of contractual completion are certified. Even after the families take occupation, the community liaison officer visits each home to list any complaints residents may have.Work has been completed in Scottsville, Scottsdene, Uitsig, Woodlands, Connaught, Kewtown and The Range. Refurbishment is still under way in Manenberg, Hanover Park, Heideveld and Ottery.“We urge communities to continue to work with us so that we can complete the remainder of the units. We remain concerned about the level of gang violence in certain areas which is jeopardising the safety of our residents and our efforts to increase service delivery,” said Van Minnen.“We are proud of our progress, especially considering that there have been 85 incidents of violence on our sites since 2013, which have affected our progress. We are, however, doing everything in our power to address these issues. The South African Police Service and the city’s metro police and law enforcement department are assisting so that the human settlements directorate can complete these vital upgrades. Private security firms have also been deployed to the troublesome sites.“Furthermore, the Mayoral Urban Regeneration Programme’s efforts to enhance safety through gang interventions in the most volatile areas have been stepped up,” she added.In 2014, the refurbishment project was named the South African Housing Foundation’s Community Development Project of the Year.“Where units have been completed and tenants have moved in, the tenants are receiving training on general home maintenance and the importance of paying their rent as the rental income is used by the city to conduct general maintenance on its rental stock.“Creating the culture of payment is therefore very important and it is vital that a sense of shared responsibility exists,” Van Minnen added.Source: City of Cape Townlast_img read more

Colon Hurls Mets Past Bucs, 5-0

first_imgNEW YORK — It’s no secret: Bartolo Colon simply sticks with his fastball. He runs it, sinks it, spots it right on the corner or just above the hands.So the Pittsburgh Pirates went into the May 28th game well aware their mound opponent was relying on that heater some 90 percent of the time this season. Still, they couldn’t do much with it.Colon carried a three-hitter into the eighth inning, and the New York Mets got home runs from David Wright and Lucas Duda in a 5-0 victory over the sloppy Pirates.“It’s impressive to watch from third base,” Wright said. “You look up at the scoreboard and it’s high 80s, low 90s (mph) fastball. He throws a lot of them, but he just knows exactly where it’s going and he just dissects hitters.”Pitching four days after his 41st birthday, Colon (4-5) struck out a season-high nine — seven looking — in his second consecutive win.Wright added an RBI single during an eventful afternoon in which he also stole a base, made two throwing errors and robbed Andrew McCutchen of extra bases with a diving play near the line.New York salvaged the final two games of a 4-5 homestand after firing batting coach Dave Hudgens and replacing him with minor league hitting coordinator Lamar Johnson.“I didn’t expect anybody to kind of hang their heads about it,” Wright said. “Hopefully, the transition to LJ is going to be a smooth one. He’s off to a good start.”The Mets improved to 13-17 at Citi Field, winning the series against Pittsburgh for their first back-to-back victories at home since a three-game streak from April 23-25.They open a season-high 11-game trip the night of May 29 with a five-game series in Philadelphia and play 25 of their next 33 on the road until July 4. “We’ve played pretty good on the road, so we’re looking forward to it,” Duda said.Colon reached 2,000 strikeouts when he caught ex-Met Ike Davis looking in the sixth. The burly right-hander saved the souvenir, tossing the ball to injured ace Matt Harvey in the dugout.“Just amazing how he works both sides of the plate,” Wright said. “You just see, he freezes hitters.”Colon’s previous turn May 23 was washed out by rain after he yielded two runs in four innings against Arizona. In his last outing that counted, he went eight innings to beat Washington 5-2 on May 17.“He threw it where he wanted and we couldn’t put anything together,” Pittsburgh second baseman Neil Walker said.Colon was pulled this time after 121 pitches, his most in a decade, but Jeurys Familia needed only one to get out of the eighth. He got Davis to ground into an inning-ending double play with two on, then finished the six-hitter for his second major league save and first this season.“If they would have kept me in, I would have kept throwing,” Colon said through a translator. “I don’t get tired. I just want to keep going.”Charlie Morton (1-7) was chased in the sixth inning and Pirates pitchers walked eight batters. Pittsburgh fell to 7-16 away from home with another poor day at the plate and in the field. “The defense hasn’t been good,” Manager Clint Hurdle said. “We’ve got work to do.”Duda drew a leadoff walk in the second and scored after second-string catcher Chris Stewart was unable to handle a pair of wild pitches by Morton.Pirates starter Edinson Volquez and reliever Jeanmar Gomez combined for four wild pitches with Russell Martin behind the plate in a May 27 4-2 loss.“We’ve got to tighten some things up and play better,” Hurdle said. “They had three trips around the bases in the last two days — it was one hit.”Wright had an RBI single in the third after an embarrassing defensive sequence for the Pirates handed Daniel Murphy a Little League triple.Murphy hit a grounder to third, and Pedro Alvarez threw high to first for an error. Murphy took off for second but the ball caromed hard off the dugout fence to Walker. He threw to second in time to get Murphy, but shortstop Jordy Mercer dropped the ball for another error that let Murphy scamper to third.Pittsburgh appealed that Murphy never touched second base, but he was called safe. “Sometimes he thinks he’s invisible, and you have to remind him that, you know, people can see you,” Wright said, drawing laughs.Wright opened the sixth with his fourth home run. Duda added a long, two-run shot off Bryan Morris in the eighth to seal the win for Colon.“Bartolo’s just a different animal,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. “He just makes his pitch. He doesn’t care how many he’s thrown.(MIKE FITZPATRICK, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Living history

first_imgWalk along the Strand and past Waterloo Bridge, Somerset House, London, and you might just see a narrow doorway squashed between a newsagent and a pizza joint. This is the entrance to the grand-sounding Strand Continental Hotel, a six-storey Edwardian building, which houses a unique slice of Indian social history.Climb,Walk along the Strand and past Waterloo Bridge, Somerset House, London, and you might just see a narrow doorway squashed between a newsagent and a pizza joint. This is the entrance to the grand-sounding Strand Continental Hotel, a six-storey Edwardian building, which houses a unique slice of Indian social history.Climb the dingy stairwell to the India Club bar on the first floor and the rumble of traffic recedes into the background as you step out of the endless headlong rush of city life and back in time. The tables are Formica-topped and the chair legs are chipped. The oriental rugs on the laminated floorboards have been worn thin by five decades of feet making their way to and from the bar, where the drinks, Amaretto and Old Monk, Amrut whiskey and Kingfisher beer, don’t seem to have changed much either. The India Club feels like a throwback to a time when going for a curry’ was an exotic sport, racism was the norm and everyone smoked. When London was a smoggy, bomb-cratered, grimy sort of place, hauling itself slowly out of post-war privation with the help of an influx of students and workers from the colonies’.Coming to London as a student in 1953, I didn’t know a soul, says historian Kusoom Vadgama, now in her late 80s. There were no newspapers, no television, no radio, no phones. If you ever caught sight of someone in a turban or sari, you’d think: Ah! Home.The India Club, for Vadgama’s generation, became their home away from home’, the title of a recent month-long oral history exhibition at the venue, curated by the National Trust. The club grew out of the India League, which, once its goal of Indian Independence had been achieved, morphed into an organisation with a cultural and social mission to promote and further Indo-British friendship. This was the least clubbish’ of clubs, whose paint-chipped doors were open to all, college students, visiting dignitaries to India House across the road, reporters on a break from the BBC at Bush House nearby.advertisement Photo courtesy of Caroline Bond A Home Away From Home’ One of London’s most fascinating community spaces(Photo courtesy David JosephOne of the club’s founders was Chandran Tharoor (Shashi Tharoor’s father) who came to London at the age of 19 in 1949. Smita, Chandran’s daughter, reminisced about a satirical poem he wrote and performed at the club about London life at the time. It went something like: If you touch anything accidentally, the Englishman says sorry-sorry’, and for the least thing the Englishman says thank you-thank you all the time. And guess what? she laughed, it hasn’t changed!In the exhibition, the recordings are accessed by an imaginative variety of ways: a heavy Bakelite telephone receiver, a flat, push-button cassette tape player, specially pressed records that you drop on to a turntable to play. At one table, the recording is triggered when you click open a grey, Samsonite case with spring-loaded clasps and battered silver trim, complete with an empty pack of Dunhills. There are black-and-white photographs, men with Brylcreemed hair next to ladies with elaborate coifs and saris cinched-in at the waist. If walls could talk, muses Kieran Cooke, veteran BBC foreign correspondent and long-time frequenter of the club. It’s a terrible cliché, I know, but the walls here have heard so many fascinating conversations, political discussions, right across the political divide. Novelist Will Self came here first as a cash-strapped student in the 1980s to chow down on the serviceable Madras cuisine’ in the restaurant. Returning two decades later, he was delighted to find it unchanged: The world outside had horribly mutated, but in this sepia burrow, it was still India in the 1950s.But this unique little burrow may not be around much longer. In September 2017, developers put in a planning application to Westminster Council to modernise the hotel. Manager Yadgar Marker and his daughter Phiroza responded with a signature campaign that gathered 26,000 supporters. There has been a temporary stay of execution, as they look for ways to upgrade the interiors without changing the character of the place.I left, hoping fervently that they succeed. Knowing you can pop into India Club for a quick dosa for a fiver, or meet up with chums for an Old Monk, makes London seem a friendlier, dare I say, more Indian place. As I stepped back out into the bright sunlight of today’s multiracial, multilingual and multicultural city, Vadgama’s parting words still rang in my ears: It’s a place where East meets West. Eat your heart out, Kipling!advertisementFor more information: https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/features/a-home-awayfrom-home-theindia-clublast_img read more
