Ninja Van Group, Southeast Asia’s leading tech-enabled logistics company, is celebrating its first-ever Small Business Month this October in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam, reaffirming its commitment to supporting the growth of small businesses in each market.
“Small businesses are the heart of our operations, and with Small Business Month, we underscore our commitment to fostering small business growth by providing practical solutions to challenges such as supply chain optimisation and maximising output with limited resources,” said Winston Seow, Group Chief Marketing Officer at Ninja Van Group.
He added: “Few remember this, but Ninja Van Group is built atop the ashes of a men’s online fashion line at the cusp of Southeast Asia’s e-commerce boom! Our origin as a small business acquainted us with the challenges that small businesses face. This puts us in a unique position to provide practical and budget-friendly solutions, including downloadable inventory management templates and the Ninja Biz app for cost-effective logistics.”
Since 2014, Ninja Van Group has been standing by the side of small businesses, navigating the evolving e-commerce landscape – including an unprecedented pandemic – and ensuring hassle-free delivery for close to two million parcels per day across Southeast Asia (SEA).
A case in point is Noorul-Hudaa who founded Batika Kebaya with a dream of bringing back a tradition that has been forgotten and making it trendy again for the next generation, Established in 2013, the fashion brand aims to preserve the intricacies and quality of a craft that draws inspiration from Indonesia and Malaysia’s rich history. Batika Kebaya is an e-commerce fashion label whose designs include traditional styled Kebayas and Batik Pleated Skirts.
Noorul-Hudaa shared, “Starting a business from scratch is exciting, but at the same time, it can be challenging to fulfill the demands and orders from customers. Operating as a two-man team, the production of the pieces can sometimes take months. For an online seller like me, it is important to have a reliable, efficient and easy-to-use service provider that can support all my delivery orders.”
Adzim Halim, CEO of Ninja Van Malaysia said, “The resilience and determination of small businesses inspire us. At Ninja Van Malaysia, our commitment to small businesses like Noorul-Hudaa’s Batika Kebaya goes beyond parcel delivery. We want to be their growth partners, providing them with comprehensive resources, information, and knowledge to not only survive but thrive in today’s competitive e-commerce world.”

Ninja Van Group has exclusive promotions via Ninja Biz, its latest app designed with small businesses in mind.
Speaking on her experience using Ninja Biz, Noorul-Hudaa, Founder of Batik Kebaya, said “Thanks to Ninja Biz, I can focus on growing Batika Kebaya without worrying about the logistical side of business. The app has made our business operations smoother from next-day pickups to a hassle-free delivery experience, which is especially important during peak periods. I first used them during Raya this year – the busiest time for Batika Kebaya – and have not looked back since!”
