After four years of being a household name in on-demand delivery services in Klang Valley, Lalamove has launched its services in Malacca. This expansion takes place approximately a year after Lalamove entered the last-mile delivery market in Penang and Johor in April 2021. 

The range of Lalamove’s delivery vehicles and price structure in Malacca is similar to its counterpart in Klang Valley. The base fare for both Motorcycle and Car, which covers the first 5km of the delivery trip, is RM5.00 and RM6.00, respectively. 

Presently, Vans, 4 x 4 Pickups and Lorries are offered for long-haul delivery services to other states with the primary goal of serving local SMEs with practical and affordable delivery services. The fare for Lalamove’s larger vehicles starts at RM18.00 with a 4 x 4 Pickup for the first 10km and goes up to RM170 with a 17-ft Lorry for the first 5km.

“Nowadays, we are consistently recording over 1.5 million deliveries per month. Besides regular consumers, we are servicing 250,000 businesses encompassing SMEs and MNCs. Our previous expansion in Johor and Penang contributed to the jump in these figures,” said Jane Teh, the Managing Director of Lalamove Malaysia. 

“We are excited to bring our brand of faster and affordable deliveries to Malacca. The pandemic has significantly accelerated businesses’ digital transformation. Our app and API can play an essential role in digitalising logistics for businesses in Malacca. Plus, our long haul services can ease distribution bottlenecks in the supply chains of SMEs, especially for those in the wholesale and trading industry,” Jane further explained. 

Lalamove’s pay-per-use scheme, as opposed to a fixed contract prevalent with traditional logistics companies, is often cited as a key factor behind Lalamove’s strength in servicing SMEs.

“We are also looking forward to offering full-time and part-time income opportunities for vehicle owners in Malacca. This expansion is a form of our contribution to strengthening the country’s gig economy and its workers,” Jane concluded. 

Recruitment of delivery partners from all vehicle types in Malacca will be a focal point to strengthen Lalamove’s presence in the state.
