Just some random thoughts here.
Singpost and SPH both have Hugh distribution network.
Singpost wanted to go big on online retail, wanted to sign online franchise, SPH has hardwarezone and advertising is but a small variable cost.
SPH help in advertising, add e-commerce depth to Singpost, singpost deliver both posts and newspaper. Parcel can be collected at both singpost outlets as well as Buzz pods. This will give buzz pod some retail depth and increase singpost retail distribution reach.
When singpost go newspaper delivering, parcel for posts can be given to the delivery man using Pre-paid packages or containers?
Wouldn't there be some cost savings and cross selling effect? SPH subscribers would get promotional rate for the e-commerce product of singpost, those bartering at hardwarezone can use singpost services, the sgcarmart can divert car loans applicants to ge money of singpost.
Singpost underdeveloped properties to be sold to SPH REIT and retail space further enhanced, especially the paya Lebar headquarters?
Am I making sense at all? This is a random thoughts series post, don't take me too seriously.
