Thailand's only 24 hours delivery app ensures timely deliveries this holiday season

lalamove, the leading professional on-demand delivery service throughout Asia, has added new features to its mobile and web application to handle increased delivery demand in Bangkok during the upcoming holiday season.

"The holiday season is a busy time for gift-giving and many companies struggle with ensuring that their gifts are delivered on time and handled with care – which are two areas that lalamove has extensive experience with" said Santit Jirawongkraisorn, Co-founder and managing Director of lalamove Thailand.

"We have added more bikes, MPVs and pick-up trucks to ensure timely deliveries during the busy holiday season. We have also introduced the "route optimization" feature, which saves clients time in having to plan the routing.

"With this feature, clients just have to type in the addresses where the gifts need to delivered and within minutes, the app with automatically schedule the quickest and shortest route. This is most practical especially when companies are looking at delivering corporate gifts or perishable goods like food hampers and festive cookies to their clients," added Santit.

Hiring freelance couriers or motorcycle taxis can be tiresome and sometimes unreliable, but thanks to lalamove, clients now have a delivery service which is fast, cost-effective, transparent and professional.

lalamove allows personal users and businesses to quickly find a professional driver anytime of the day to help move their goods with a few clicks on their smartphone.

It is also the only delivery app offering 24/7 service and advance booking.
