Third-party logistics solutions provider Lalamove announced its strengthened partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry Region 3 (DTI-3) for the upcoming Likha ng Central Luzon Trade Fair.
The partnership sees Lalamove’s continued support of the government’s efforts to empower micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) under the One Town, One Product (OTOP) Philippines stimulus program.
This entails the provision of business logistics solutions to businesses across provinces within Central Luzon – namely Aurora, Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Tarlac and Zambales – that are designed to drive growth, widen reach, and boost economic performance.
A collaboration to further Central Luzon’s growth
This collaboration between Lalamove and DTI is in line with the latter’s promotion of entrepreneurship across the Philippines, and its continued advocacy for local products and goods. Supported by the Regional Development Council-3 and the Central Luzon Growth Corridor Foundation, Inc., it furthers the Department’s mandate to drive inclusive economic growth across all regions, provinces, and cities in the country.
Likha ng Central Luzon Trade Fair, a major regional trade promotion activity jointly organized by DTI-3 and Philexport-3 aims to gather and champion the region’s entrepreneurs. The annual event will run its 24th edition on October 26 to 30, 2022 at the Mega Trade Hall, SM Megamall.
“By working together with logistics partner Lalamove, we hope to bridge the gap between Central Luzon communities, shine a light on the beauty of Filipino craftsmanship, creativity and ingenuity by opening the avenue for MSMEs to reach wider markets without compromising affordability and efficiency, and ultimately boost regional commerce across the country,” DTI-3 Assistant Regional Director Brigida Pili commented.
Business solutions for MSME growth & empowerment
“As an advocate for MSME growth and empowerment, especially at the regional level, we hope to serve as a platform that enables connection among markets and communities in the Philippines, starting with Central Luzon. By working closely with the government to provide access to local entrepreneurs, we hope more businesses will feel more empowered and confident to grow their businesses further, and reach farther, with Lalamove,” expressed Dannah Majarocon, Lalamove Philippines Managing Director.
Through the on-demand delivery platform’s long-distance delivery and last-mile delivery solutions, the partnership hopes to push entrepreneurs to grow further with the app’s affordable rates (fixed price for the first 40 kms), reach farther with wider coverage across 31 serviceable areas in Luzon, and broaden their market through a wide-ranging fleet of vehicles fit for every delivery requirement.
Through these offerings and more, MSMEs can easily widen their scope for both B2B and B2C deliveries, effectively opening new opportunities for growth with Lalamove. This, tied with the Likha ng Central Luzon Trade Fair, and entrepreneurs across Central Luzon are given the perfect avenue to establish new partnerships, promotions and connections with neighbouring provinces and communities.
With the Lalamove app, MSMEs can book from Pampanga, Manila, Olongapo and Tarlac within Central Luzon, or across Luzon, for their business needs. They will immediately have access to features such as route optimization, trusted partner drivers, and multi-stop deliveries, to name a few, plus a fleet of motorcycles, sedans, 4-wheel, 6-wheel, and even 10-wheel trucks to tap. As corporate clients, MSMEs can unlock further tools to enrich their ventures, including optimal support from the Lalamove team for growing businesses.
