Lalamove launched the Lalajeep, in partnership with the Quezon City local government, a one-of-kind vehicle aimed to cater to the residents’ delivery needs. It is part of the company’s COVID-19 relief efforts in helping displaced jeepney drivers due to the community quarantine. Business owners who rely on Lalamove heavily now have more affordable options as they shift their business online in adapting to the new norm.

Available until August 15 in Quezon City, users can choose LalaJeep as a new delivery option on the Lalamove app. It is also affordable, as it falls just in between the motorcycle and the 300kg delivery services.

City Mayor Joy Belmonte thanked Lalamove for initiating this program, as jeepney drivers who are directly affected by the continuing community quarantine now have alternative livelihood for the time being. Dannah Majarocon, Managing Director of Lalamove Philippines, shared that this partnership allows their services to suit every business owner and day-to-day user’s delivery preferences. The LalaJeep project also aligns with their goal of uplifting lives and empowering communities, showing that with governmental support, the company can maximize its delivery services.

Around 200 jeepney drivers signed up to be part of the LalaJeep fleet. The QC government facilitated group training sessions to help drivers in operating the mobile application. With the LalaJeep initiative program, both Lalamove and the Quezon City local government hopes to alleviate the adversity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the community quarantine.
