The company is planning to invest fresh funding on doubling its revenue as well as operations in nearby region during Ramadan, the busiest time of the year, for retailers in Indonesia. Now, however, Kargo is in survival mode.
According to the statement made by CEO Tiger Fang, “We are going to spend a large proportion of the funding on creating brand awareness and expanding presence but all of ours is out the window now. For now, we are more emphasizing on how can we survive during a health crisis and make all the possible polices to come back on the track of growth”.

Some senior staff is receiving 25% of their salary to back up the company as the revenue is going down.
