Lalamove to expand in Luzon

TECHNOLOGY company Lalamove Philippines Inc. has expanded its last-mile and long-distance delivery business to “the farthest locations in North [Luzon] and South Luzon.”

Lalamove Philippines Managing Director April Dannah Majarocon said management expects their expansion to these areas targets small-scale and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs).

“With its last-mile delivery services, Lalamove is enabling local businesses to reach new customers and generate more sales,” Majarocon was quoted in a statement as saying. “[Our] footprint in Luzon is beefing up SMEs’ expansion, supporting the growing need for deliveries witnessed particularly for the past two years.”

She said the business will expand in the following “farthest locations:” Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, Ifugao, Kalinga, Mountain Province, Abra, Apayao and Benguet in North Luzon; and, Rizal, Quezon, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay and Sorsogon in South Luzon.

Majarocon added that Lalamove is “strengthening its fleet to offer a wide range of vehicles from motorcycles, sedans, vans and trucks to address the delivery challenges in a high-demand market like the Philippines.”

She added the on-demand logistics business is also gearing up for “further expansion this 2022, targeting to add more locations to its list of serviceable pick-up and drop-off points.”
