Lazada has introduced a new logistics operation to empower local grocers with 24-to-48-hour delivery services to support the rising demand on essentials items amid tightened MCO 3.0.
Sherry Tan, Chief Business Officer, Lazada Malaysia said, “Malaysians have grown even more accustomed to shopping online for everyday essentials, as evidenced by grocery purchases on Lazada tripling year-on-year during the nationwide MCO 3.0.”
“We stand ready to continuously connect thousands of homegrown grocers with more than one-third of the local population shopping on the Lazada app every month,” she added.
Since last year, the number of local grocers that have digitalised through Lazada to future-proof their business has nearly doubled.
Lazada is also supporting homebound communities with daily Free Shipping vouchers on essential items.
Meanwhile, Olivier Petra, Chief Logistics Officer, Lazada Malaysia, added, “During this crucial time, we are prioritising the delivery fulfilment of essential items, such as fresh produce, face masks, hand sanitisers, household goods, baby supplies, and pet supplies.
“We urge the local community to make use of the daily Free Shipping vouchers provided to shop safely from home and help curb the spread of Covid-19. We are also conducting contactless delivery for the safety and peace of mind of all our customers and staff,” she added.
