Many businesses nowadays rely heavily on versatile mobility. In line with that, reliable vehicles are of utmost importance for businesses to reduce transportation costs, to expand their businesses’ reach, as well as to help ensure on-time deliveries.
With Lalamove further solidifying its foothold as a leading on-demand delivery service, Hyundai has partnered with them to provide all that was mentioned, and more. This new partnership will be a means to allows business owners to get the most out of their Hyundai H-100 trucks. The program aims to empower micro, small, and medium enterprises (SMSEs) and large corporations alike by reducing transportation costs, expanding consumer reach, and helping ensure on-time deliveries.
“Hyundai and Lalamove speak the same language when it comes to transportation. One of Hyundai’s advocacies is sustainable mobility, and we are so excited to contribute to this by marrying the strength, durability, and efficiency of the H-100 with Lalamove’s wide network of partners and convenient user interface,” said Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo, Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) President and CEO.
“Lalamove’s mission is to empower local communities. This means providing our partner drivers with a source of livelihood. The H-100 is a durable and versatile vehicle that is fully equipped to do this and to satisfy our customers’ delivery needs. On top of that, Lalamove will have easy access to PMS and parts given Hyundai’s ever-growing nationwide network of dealerships,” added Dannah Majarocon, Managing Director of Lalamove Philippines.
The Hyundai H-100 vans are light trucks designed to excel at transporting cargo and passengers alike, thanks to its powerful engine and wide wheelbase. Powered by a 2.5L CRDi Euro 4 it aims to deliver fuel efficiency while adhering to modern standards of reduced carbon emissions. Given its 1335 kilogram payload capacity, it's at the top of its segment as well.
This joint venture will also deliver several benefits and perks to Lalamove partners using H-100 vans, including deep discounts for parts and service, faster turnaround on preventive maintenance service (PMS), fixed rates for picking up and delivering units for PMS, and a program for fleet expansion and re-fleeting.
Ms. Agudo concluded, “This partnership targets the ‘last mile’ logistics challenge for businesses and end customers. The H-100 and Lalamove will ensure that partners get to maximize profit without having to maintain their own fleet.”
