SOCAR seals new partnerships to aid small and independent small businesses

In line with enabling e-commerce in the new normal of contactless deliveries, SOCAR Malaysia is partnering with Teleport, the logistics company of AirAsia as they expand their footprint regionally by providing mobility solutions for moving goods including fresh food, groceries, e-commerce parcels and even items such as medical aid.

“At SOCAR, we constantly seek to use our technology to be champions of progress by partnering with businesses and stakeholders that share the same vision. We want to use our assets and platform to offer new means for Malaysians to generate extra income. With our vehicles, we are reducing the barrier to entry for Malaysians to join the sharing economy. Through SOCAR’s wide range of vehicles, competitive rates, convenient pick-up points and generous mileage and petrol allowance we can support businesses to grow sustainably while also reducing their day to day cash flow needs,” said Leon Foong, chief executive officer of SOCAR Malaysia.

The car-sharing service provider has also partnered with other delivery service providers such as LaLamove, MrSpeedy and Pickupp.

“This Ramadhan, with popular food sources like bazaars and buka puasa buffets not operating as usual due to the conditional movement control order, efficient delivery of freshly prepared food and other items for festive preparations is more important than ever. Rainy weather can indeed be an unwelcome dampener, hence, we see SOCAR as an ideal option for independent delivery providers and small businesses to stay dry when delivering food and other items during rainy weather.”

“This idea was sparked after seeing motorcyclists, including delivery agents, sheltering from the rain under flyovers and other ad-hoc rain shelters. With SOCAR as an alternative, we don’t want the rain to stop our brave frontliners from delivering the joy during this period,” added Leon.

Users can also choose from hourly and daily bookings for a variety of cars ranging from Perodua Axia and Honda City to Volkswagen Polo and many more, available in over 1,000 locations.
