Job Description


At Teleport, we are on a journey to make logistics simpler, friendlier, and faster for everyone, especially in the areas of cargo and delivery throughout Southeast Asia. Unlike many other start-ups, we didn't start in a garage or at the back of a university dormitory. Teleport was spun off from the idea of our brilliant department of the world's best low-cost airline, AirAsia. Incorporated as RedCargo Logistics on 13th March 2018, we re-branded ourselves to Teleport a year later enabling us to expand and create opportunities beyond cargo and AirAsia. We are in the business to provide speed in logistics and the concept of teleportation came to mind. It was either Teleport or A2B - thankfully we agreed on the former (phew).
