Lalamove Launches On-Demand Delivery Service for SMBs in DFW
With plans to onboard more than 1,000 delivery partners to its platform by the end of 2020, Lalamove aims to make delivery more accessible to local businesses.
DALLAS, 1 October 2020 – Lalamove, a leading on-demand and same-day delivery service provider, today launched its service in Dallas-Fort Worth to empower small and medium-sized companies (SMBs) with the ability to offer fast, on-demand deliveries to their customers.
Prior to Dallas, Lalamove has been operating in 21 markets across Asia and Latin America since 2013, connecting more than 7 million customers with a pool of over 700,000 delivery partners.
Lalamove specializes in tackling last-mile delivery challenges for SMBs across multiple industries, including catering, retail, e-commerce, manufacturing and construction. Leveraging the power of the web, mobile app technology and the sharing economy, Lalamove provides fast, reliable and contract-free services for SMBs looking to add to and/or fulfill their delivery needs.
Lalamove doesn’t impose a revenue share model, so local restaurants can grow their business by adding delivery services to their customers using Lalamove without paying commissions common to specialized food delivery platforms.
Brick-and-mortar shops, such as independent bookstores and clothing boutiques, can fulfil their local orders all at once with Lalamove’s multi-stop delivery feature. Individuals can also use Lalamove to deliver items they sell or purchase at online marketplaces, from a bike to a couch.
“Delivery is essential, especially during the pandemic. But many local businesses don’t have or cannot afford in-house fleets, so we’re excited to work with businesses in the Dallas Fort-Worth area to provide same-day, on-demand delivery services to their customers,” said Blake Larson, international managing director at Lalamove. “Our trained delivery partners are available 24/7 at the touch of a button to take care of all types of delivery and logistics needs.”
