Despite the challenges, Lalamove has maintained a foothold in the delivery industry with sustained growth. The pandemic has shown the value of same-day delivery and with the continuous rise of online businesses, Lalamove invests further in its fleet expansion to meet the growing demand while also creating more jobs most especially for displaced drivers during the pandemic.
How Lalamove is creating more jobs most especially for displaced drivers
This year marks the launch of the sedan fleet of Lalamove, which has long been requested by its loyal customers. This new fleet will feature 200kg of weight capacity with dimensions of 3.5 x 2 x 2.5 ft. It falls perfectly between the motorcycle and the MPV category, promising a significant capacity upgrade from the motorcycle fleet and lower prices compared to the 300kg MPVs.
Business users stand to benefit from the new category as the food & beverage industry and online marketplaces have shown a steady increase in demand for 4-wheel deliveries. In addition, this opens up great earning opportunities to more people whose livelihood has been affected by the pandemic.
“Our goal this year is to further enhance the flexibility of our delivery services. The launch of the sedan fleet is our answer to the ever-growing needs of our customers while creating more jobs for the driving community.” – Dannah Majarocon, Managing Director of Lalamove Philippines
The 200kg Sedan fleet is now available to take on deliveries starting February 1, 2021. Aspiring partner drivers may join and apply online.
The requirements needed to be a partner driver are as follows:
- Professional Driver’s License
- OR/CR of the vehicle
- Authorization Letter (only if you are borrowing the vehicle)
- Up-to-date NBI Clearance
