Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), one of the country’s leading automotive distributors, and Lalamove, the premier on-demand delivery service in Asia, have announced a partnership that allows business owners to get the most out of their Hyundai H-100 trucks. The program aims to empower micro, small, and medium enterprises (SMSEs) and large corporations alike by reducing transportation costs, expanding consumer reach, and helping ensure on-time deliveries.
Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) President and CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo was enthusiastic about bringing this partnership to Filipino entrepreneurs. “Hyundai and Lalamove speak the same language when it comes to transportation. One of Hyundai’s advocacies is sustainable mobility, and we are so excited to contribute to this by marrying the strength, durability, and efficiency of the H-100 with Lalamove’s wide network of partners and convenient user interface,” she said.
The partnership will deliver several benefits and perks to Lalamove partners using H-100 vans, including deep discounts for parts and service, faster turnaround on preventive maintenance service (PMS), fixed rates for picking up and delivering units for PMS, and a program for fleet expansion and re-fleeting.
The Hyundai H-100 is a versatile light truck designed to excel at transporting cargo and passengers alike, thanks to its powerful engine and wide wheelbase. Its 2.5L CRDi Euro 4 engine delivers cutting-edge fuel efficiency while adhering to modern standards of reduced carbon emissions.
The H-100’s payload capacity of 1,335 kilograms is the best in its class. Aside from cargo capacity and fuel efficiency, the H-100 prioritizes the driver’s comfort. An adjustable driver seat and centrally mounted, all-round ventilation with optional air conditioning make long hauls a breeze.
The H-100 will also stand the test of time, with each vehicle undergoing a 7-dip electrodeposition process to produce a durable and rust-proof coating. Every H-100 is backed by Hyundai’s best-in-class 5-year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, ensuring that owners and drivers get the most out of their truck.
Dannah Majarocon, Managing Director of Lalamove Philippines, said, “Lalamove’s mission is to empower local communities. This means providing our partner drivers with a source of livelihood. The H-100 is a durable and versatile vehicle that is fully equipped to do this and to satisfy our customers’ delivery needs. On top of that, Lalamove will have easy access to PMS and parts given Hyundai’s ever-growing nationwide network of dealerships.”
Ms. Agudo concluded, “This partnership targets the ‘last mile’ logistics challenge for businesses and end customers. The H-100 and Lalamove will ensure that businesses get to maximize profit without having to maintain their own fleets.”
