Lalamove is Ready to Support the Logistics Needs of Food Businesses
In the midst of many challenges, the ability to adapt is the key for businesses to be able to face the existing changes. This capability is especially important for MSME businesses, the business sector most affected by the pandemic.
To be able to survive in the midst of economic uncertainty and shock, MSME businesses need to adapt quickly, including in serving customers. One of the industries most affected by the pandemic is the food and beverage business or food and beverages (F&B).
The command to keep distance makes it a habit for consumers to turn to online platforms to buy daily necessities, including buying food. According to McKinsey’s data, 34% of consumers admit to ordering food online more frequently these days.
This trend is also likely to continue with 84% of consumers admitting that they intend to order food online post-pandemic.
With this trend, the F&B business is also required to adapt to changing market consumption patterns, both in terms of products and services as well as in terms of delivery services. To answer various consumer demands, flexible delivery services are needed so that food can reach consumers safely and on time.
Lalamove Users can Make Instant or Scheduled Deliveries
One of the delivery platforms, Lalamove Indonesia, answers the needs of this F&B business through its flexible delivery services. Through the application or website, users can make instant or scheduled shipments easily.
The available fleet options also vary, from motorbikes, vans, to pick-ups. With these various options, it is possible for businesses to serve large quantities of orders and support delivery to multiple destination points.
One food business that has used Lalamove’s services is Nasi Kapau Juragan restaurant. According to Nasi Kapau Marketing, Evy Irmalestari, Lalamove’s service makes it easy to deliver food that can be tailored to consumer needs.
In addition, this flexible delivery service is also used for healthy food distributors, such as Nutrigen. Therefore, with the various features offered, Lalamove hopes that food and beverage businesses can adapt to keep up with changing consumer trends.
HappyFresh Partners with Lalamove to Strengthen Delivery Services
Previously, Lalamove also announced that it was present as a delivery option on the HappyFresh online shopping service. The presence of Lalamove is expected to increase capacity and maximize delivery quality.
HappyFresh has used Lalamove as a delivery service, especially for large shipments with a four-wheeled fleet. However, with this collaboration, HappyFresh can integrate its services automatically with Lalamove.
“With this collaboration, it is hoped that customers will have a greater opportunity to get an order slot. We ourselves can have a more maximal and efficient delivery capacity both in terms of time and cost,” said HappyFresh Field Operations Jr. Manager, Jefrico Reza.

Through this integration, Lalamove ensures that it does not charge a fee or commission. Therefore, entrepreneurs who want to develop their business towards digital do not require high investment for their delivery fleet needs
Apart from integration services, Lalamove also offers various shipping features that make it easier for entrepreneurs. There are various choices of fleets available, from two-wheeled vehicles to box shops.
Customers can also schedule deliveries via the app and website. This line of services is a form of the company’s commitment to helping the development of the MSME business, especially in the midst of the current pandemic.

Therefore, Lalamove is here to answer the needs of sending MSMEs to be able to adapt to market demand and increase the scale of their business,” said Managing Director of Lalamove Indonesia Andi Rizki in an official statement.
