HOMEGROWN logistic platform Tumpang enables faster and reliable delivery services through matching the correct cargo space with the suitable transport vehicle.
It offers different pricing options and transporters including lorries, trucks, vans and 4×4 vehicles where users can choose from.
Users are only required to fill in their details, upload the photos of their delivery items and choose from the different providers with services up to 70% off.
According to Tumpang founder Patrick Tan, the concept came about when they saw an opportunity to work alongside transporters to use up their empty return trips after fulfilling their client’s delivery.
“Utilising the unused space means greater cost savings for customers and businesses when booking the services as most people would find the charges exorbitant to send long-distance bulky and loose cargo deliveries, so we are here to solve just that.
“Delivery is an essential part of our everyday lives and with the rise of e-commerce, the demand for delivery will only continue to grow.
“One of our future goals is to also further enhance the flexibility of our delivery service and to fix the gap between the sellers and buyers by allowing them to sell and buy loose items without worrying about the transportation fees, the Tumpang way,” he said in a statement yesterday.
Tumpang also allows transport owners to make full use of their cargo space by earning from this platform.
Since its soft launch in May 2021, it has successfully delivered more than 2,100 items and over 1,000 delivery partners have joined the platform.
To expand its increasing customer demands while creating more opportunities to generate income within the logistics community, the app aims to have more partners onboard.
In conjunction with the launch of its platform, Tumpang is currently offering delivery charge discounts of up to RM12 with no minimum charges which will run from June 1 to Dec 31.
Customers can redeem using the “TUMPANGNOW” promo code which is only valid for one redemption per user.
The app will be expanded to East Malaysia and neighbouring countries like Thailand and Singapore by the end of next year.
Moreover, Tumpang also provides professional moving services where they can pack, load, unload and ensure a safe delivery.
