Lalamove Philippines, one of the logistics services providers in the country, is halting its food delivery operations under LalaFood starting February 15, as part of the country’s plan to redirect its main focus on its core business.
LalaFood said in a statement on Monday that the company will continue to expand its delivery services, some plans are now ongoing in Manila and Pampanga by February 2021.
“We express our deepest gratitude to all of LalaFood’s customers for your continued support, and to our partner riders and merchants who were with us throughout this journey,” it said.
“2021 will continue to be another year of strong growth for Lalamove in the Philippines. We are committed to strengthening our investment in the Philippines to better serve our customers and provide more opportunities for our driver-partners and employees,” it added.
Lalamove is present in over 100 cities across Mainland China, Southeast Asia, and India, providing delivery services to its customers. In the Philippines, the company alone has over 45,000 partner drivers serving in Manila and Cebu.
“[W]e place great confidence in the Philippine market and we are excited for what lies ahead in 2021. The year is just unfolding and there’s so much in store for us all,” LalaFood said. Ronald dela Cruz
