Business World - - CORPORATE NEWS - I.C.C. Delavin

HONG KONG-BASED lo­gis­tics firm Lalam­ove is mak­ing its way to the Philip­pine mar­ket, of­fer­ing door-to-door de­liv­er­ies through a Web and mo­bile app.

In a state­ment, the pop­u­lar de­liv­ery app said the Philip­pine mar­ket is “def­i­nitely ready” for a dis­rup­tive ser­vice like Lalam­ove as there is a need for a bet­ter, faster and more con­ve­nient ser­vice com­pared to the cur­rent level of ser­vice that Filipinos are used to.

“There hasn’t been a clear leader in the tech de­liv­ery and lo­gis­tics space in Metro Manila and the Lalam­ove team hopes to be in that spot very soon,” said the com­pany, which op­er­ates in over 28 cities across Asia.

The app pro­vides an in­stant and sched­uled de­liv­ery ser­vice avail­able in mo­bile and Web that al­lows users to book ei­ther a mo­tor­cy­cle or a util­ity ve­hi­cle for all their de­liv­ery needs through­out Metro Manila.

Lalam­ove said it is suit­able for busi­ness own­ers who have sev­eral de­liv­er­ies dur­ing the day, as the app is tai­lor fit ac­cord­ing to their needs. Clients can book ei­ther within an hour or sched­uled up to four weeks from cur­rent date. Users can also have “mul­ti­ple drop offs” fea­ture which lets users add up to 20 drop-off points all in one route.

The com­pany en­ters the Philip­pine mar­ket where de­mand for de­liv­ery ser­vices is grow­ing due to the boom­ing e-com­merce in­dus­try.

It of­fers a base rate of P80 for mo­tor­cy­cle de­liv­er­ies and P250 for util­ity ve­hi­cle (UV) de­liv­er­ies. Ad­di­tional P10 is added for per kilo­me­ter for mo­tor­cy­cle de­liv­er­ies and P25 for UV de­liv­er­ies.

“Other fea­tures in­clude: adding an in­su­lated box for mo­tor­cy­cle or­ders, per­fect for food and meal de­liv­er­ies; re­quest­ing the driver and ve­hi­cle to do a round trip; ask­ing the driver to do cash han­dling, per­fect for busi­ness own­ers who do cash on de­liv­ery for their cus­tomers; and re­quest­ing for an as­sis­tant with the driver for ad­di­tional help needed, per­fect for mov­ing heavy load,” it said.

The app is avail­able for down­load on iOS and An­droid de­vices and is also avail­able for Web or desk­top. —
