The local government of Quezon City and Lalamove collaborated to launch the LalaJeep, a one-of-a-kind vehicle to cater to the delivery needs of the QC residents.
Starting from June 15 until August 15, customers get to see LalaJeep as a new delivery type on the Lalamove app. The delivery jeep ensures affordability for anyone to avail and will only be available in Quezon City for the entire duration of the project.
“Since our jeepney drivers are directly affected by the continuing community quarantine, this LalaJeep program is a welcome initiative that will provide alternative livelihood for them. We are grateful to Lalamove for piloting this program in Quezon City,” shared City Mayor Joy Belmonte.
During the preparation of the launch, around 200 jeepney drivers signed up to be part of the LalaJeep fleet.
Both Lalamove and Quezon City’s local government believed that the LalaJeep project would ease the hurdles brought about by the pandemic and quarantine.
“This project is aligned with Lalamove’s goal to empower communities and uplift the livelihood of those who are heavily affected by the pandemic,” said Dannah Majarocon, the Managing Director of Lalamove Philippines.
“This will allow our services better to suit every business owner and day-to-day user’s delivery needs. This project is a testament that, with governmental support, we can deliver possibilities faster,” added Majarocon.
