With that domain expertise, Tokban has the commercial intuitions to address the challenges in the construction industry and effectively fill the efficiency gaps.
  • Problem: The Indonesian construction supply industry is fragmented, high-friction and unstructured, leading to inefficiencies, high project costs, and supply chain management.
  • Solution: Tokban solves these inefficiencies in the $100B+ industry through aggregation, optimisation and digitisation. With this solution, Tokban achieves quick turn-around on the order-to-delivery curve, price and quality transparency, more comprehensive options for its stakeholders and flexible payment terms.

The platform now caters to 30+ recurring buyers with 100+ suppliers with a GMV of over US$900k. Additionally, Tokban’s platform receives 3.4K unique monthly visits and growing.

The Indonesian construction industry is currently valued at US$131.2B, and it has been growing at a rate of 11% annually. Similarly, new trends show that B2B e-Commerce transactions grew 3X this year. As a result, Indonesia will be the 4th largest construction economy globally by 2030.

However, this industry remains fragmented, high-friction and unstructured up to this day. This has led to inefficiency in supply chain management amongst the construction industry players.

The leading players on the supply side are; manufacturers, distributors and retailers. While on the demand side, there are the; contractors, retail stores and project owners.


Tokban is a construction material digital superhighway where all key players can streamline processes to achieve faster delivery, material transparency, better options, and business-friendly payment terms — all in a digitised one-stop-shop platform.

By aggregating key players and optimising the ordering process, Tokban provides value in more than one front, hitting key market pain points of inefficiency, enervated cost controls, and weak project and supply chain management.

The company has a straightforward revenue model generating healthy returns through supplier rebates leveraged on a consolidated buying power and a supply chain financing program. The model is designed to generate revenue at crucial transaction touchpoints to secure business sustainability.


Since the commercial viability of the offer has been validated, it is relatively easy to scale the operation upwards by onboarding more supply-side and demand-side users. To be at the forefront of this untapped tech segment, the future for Tokban remains bright.
