While the Covid-19 crisis has negatively affected our businesses, it has caused an e-commerce boom as online orders increased.
Many companies have also pivoted online and offered delivery services to adapt to this digital change.
To meet this increased demand, logistics and delivery company Lalamove intensify your game to make sure you continue to offer reliable delivery services.
“Online demand will not go away and will be a part of our daily lives,” Lalamove said.
“The need for logistics partners or service providers has grown dramatically over the last year or so due to the pandemic. We make sure that companies can meet as many deliveries as possible at a time when demand for deliveries has increased. “
As it is allowing fast deliveries for everyone
Founded in 2013, Lalamove offers on-demand messaging services in more than 20 cities around the world. Their mission is simple: they want to make a la carte and same-day delivery possible for everyone at the touch of a button.
After all, as consumers, we want our packages to be delivered safely to our doors on time. To facilitate this, Lalamove orders are accepted almost instantly and deliveries are completed in less than an hour.
The logistics company said it had planned to increase online orders after the advent of the Covid-19, so it has aggressively hired more drivers to meet demand.
With the expansion of its delivery fleet, Lalamove now has a fleet of more than 50,000 local drivers and more than 700,000 drivers worldwide.
While certain areas such as business districts are known to have large volumes of deliveries, this does not baffle Lalamove. In fact, the company has achieved a high rate of completed deliveries across the island.
Lalamove also has a wide variety of vehicle types to tackle the toughest and most congested roads.
It features multi-purpose vehicles, including vans and multi-purpose vehicles for multi-purpose e-commerce shipments, as well as motorcycles and cars to fuel Singapore’s food delivery landscape.
For large, temperature-sensitive goods, companies can also take advantage of Lalamove trucks and refrigerated trucks.
Therefore, instead of buying a new vehicle or hiring dedicated staff to carry out deliveries, companies can only rely on Lalamove for on-demand deliveries.
Business owners can choose a type of vehicle that best suits their needs and delivery budget, allowing them to expand or reduce their operations accordingly.
How else can companies benefit from Lalamove
Lalamove’s delivery services are intended primarily for businesses.

“We help companies from a wide range of industries scale and outsource their deliveries according to their needs,” Lalamove said.
Beyond getting Lalamove to meet their delivery needs, companies will have a personal account executive who will help them with their operations.
As companies grow and require more support for delivery processes, they can also leverage the integration of the application programming interface (API) to schedule seamless deliveries for a smoother delivery process.

In addition, Lalamove’s on-demand business model allows users to pay only for what they need, so they can save costs for non-peak periods.

In addition, Lalamove’s multi-stop ordering feature also helps companies save costs by refining delivery processes. Companies can book a vehicle and schedule up to 19 delivery locations, while optimizing routes.
Companies also have the ability to track the location of their packages in real time in the mobile or web app so they can track delivery.
