LALAMOVE Malaysia is bringing its technology and 40,000-strong delivery fleet to Klang to support large-scale intercity deliveries across West Malaysia. With this expansion, local small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the vicinity of Klang can enjoy access to their counterparts and customers across the peninsular.
This development is in line with the government’s plan in Budget 2020 to promote Port Klang as a regional maritime centre and logistics hub. Local SMEs can take advantage of this plan to broaden their customer base.
Lalamove Malaysia Sdn Bhd MD Shen Ong said local SMEs need advanced yet budget-friendly business solutions in order to stay efficient and competitive.
“Our decision to launch a satellite office in Klang is meant to meet this demand head-on. Our fees are designed to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes and industries.
We charge our deliveries based on distance starting from RM5 (for motorcycles) and RM50 (for larger vehicles),” he said.
Citing the rapid growth of the logistics sector in the country, Transport Minister Anthony Loke mentioned in his speech during the launch of Kuala Lumpur International Logistics and Transport Exhibition 2020 that the government is always exploring new opportunities to strengthen the logistics sector.
“We are not here to hijack the existing logistics ecosystem nor do we view other logistics companies as competitors. In fact, we are offering an alternative on-demand logistics fleet to introduce efficiency in intraand inter-city goods transportation.
“Businesses can utilise our fleet to manage deliveries in a timely manner with just a few taps on our app,” Ong added.
To reinforce its operations in Klang, Lalamove aims to recruit up to 1,000 van and lorry drivers to meet the demands of local businesses and to support the logistics development in the city.
In tandem with this growth, Lalamove will open new delivery routes in Nilai, Negri Sembilan, and Sepang, Selangor, to fill in the gap of last-mile deliveries across the region.
