According to a report by Google & Temasek, Vietnam's last-mile delivery market could reach $2 billion by 2025. Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the last-mile delivery market still witnessed a rapid growth of users, especially business and shop owners who are looking to deliver products to customers in a timely manner with reasonable prices.
Among popular last-mile delivery apps in Vietnam, Lalamove has become more popular thanks to its full range of services. Lalamove offers motobike delivery services for compact packages and truck delivery services for bulky cargos with weight up to 2 tonnes. Users can enjoy several benefits such as quickly booking Lalamove services with competitive fees. Meanwhile, its drivers are not only friendly but also efficient to deliver packages up to 20 points for an order.

Lalamove offers fast delivery services for food, fragile utensils, valuable goods, and bulky goods to ensure that the original packaging is in good condition.
In addition, users can also schedule pick-up times which are suitable for both senders and recipients. The service is applied to all kinds of vehicles. Users are able to make bookings one month in advance.
Lalamove also provides both office and house moving services with loading and unloading. Previously, cyclo and tricycle drivers accounted for the majority of the market for large and bulky furniture transportation services, which often take a long time to complete and is easily affected by the weather. Lalamove offers a superior solution to this problem. The app allows users to book a car to move office and home furniture quickly and conveniently. It also adds 1 or 2-way loading and unloading services with clear prices on the app. With Lalamove, users will no longer have to worry when moving cumbersome packages to high floors.

Solutions to help businesses optimise last-mile delivery costs
The rapid growth of e-commerce in Vietnam has fuelled the rising demand for business-to-customer/customer-to-customer (B2C/C2C) transport and fast delivery service. However, many research papers have shown that businesses, chain stores, and supermarkets often lose 3-5 per cent of their revenue to maintain an in-house last-mile delivery department.
Lalamove is mainly operating in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. However, the app also provides truck delivery orders from Ho Chi Minh City to Binh Duong, or from Hanoi to more than 10 neighbouring provinces such as Haiphong, Bac Ninh, Bac Giang, and Quang Ninh. This app has served tens of thousands of shop owners with their motorcycle and truck delivery services.
When users book Lalamove’s fast delivery orders, drivers will receive the order immediately and deliver the packages as fast as possible. This means drivers do not have to go through transit warehouses or wait for more cargo from other orders, which will help minimise waiting time and risks of lost or damaged goods for both senders and recipients.
