JEJU, Feb. 10 (Korea Bizwire) — The government of Jeju Special Self-Governing Province said Wednesday it will launch the full-scale operation of a new shared logistics platform called ‘modang.’
The provincial government decided to establish the shared platform as a way to address the disadvantages local residents and companies face due to the province’s geographical restriction as an island.
The platform will provide a variety of shared services, among others, the delivery of previously undeliverable goods, the shared delivery of ‘made in Jeju’ items, and the shared warehousing and storage of goods.
The delivery of so-called undeliverable goods is a service that allows local residents to take delivery of goods that have been marked as undeliverable for Jeju if they designate a base center as a delivery destination.
Once they do, the logistics firms registered on the platform will deliver the goods to the customer’s address.
The joint delivery of ‘made-in-Jeju’ items is designed to alleviate the logistics cost burden for the province’s small and medium-sized enterprises.
If they register their goods on the platform for delivery, the logistics firms registered as joint logistics service providers will deliver the items within or outside the province.
The shared goods warehousing and storage service serves as a bridge between business owners with idle warehouse and storage space on the island, and residents and businesses who need space to store their goods.
