According to Bloomberg data, J&T Express could surpass telecommunications tower operator PT Indosat as the largest Indonesian company to list in the United States.

Online shopping sites have put J&T in high demands

PT Tokopedia and Bukalapak.com, both based in Indonesia, and Shopee, a subsidiary of Singapore-based Sea Ltd, are among J&T Express's partners.

The courier service has been in high demand since customers rapidly switched to online shopping as the global pandemic struck.

Launched in 2015 by Jet Lee and Tony Chen, the firm has already expanded its services to Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines among others.
