MANILA, OCTOBER 11, 2017 – Deliveree, also known as Transportify in the Philippines, announced that it has secured $14.5 million for its Series A led by Gobi Partners. PSA Unboxed, Asia Summit Capital, and Inspire Ventures also participated in the round. The Series A investors join founding investors Inspire Ventures and Ardent Capital. The new funding will be used to fuel Deliveree's growth as Southeast Asia's leading ground logistics marketplace and to expand its logistics technology solutions to businesses.Launched in 2015, Deliveree is revolutionizing the way businesses move their goods, merchandise, and cargo throughout the metro areas of Bangkok, Jakarta, and Manila. Their mobile and web app platform provides companies with access to thousands of qualified drivers of commercial vehicles on a pay-as-you-go basis which reduces ground transport costs by as much as 50%.
“The shift to marketplace solutions is progressing rapidly across key areas of logistics,” says Tom Kim, CEO and Co-Founder of Deliveree. “This is acutely true with the intracity movements of cargo and goods. Deliveree’s marketplace of 15,000 trucks, vans, pickups, and economy vehicles across Southeast Asia are servicing thousands of customers daily, including large corporations, big brands, and respected logistics companies. Within our markets, whatever products you’re using today, there’s a good chance they were moved in one of our vehicles.”
"Over the past few years, there has been a substantial investment in small-parcel, last-mile consumer logistics due to the rise of e-commerce in Southeast Asia. However, this space suffers from poor operating economics." says Gagan Singh, Deliveree's CFO. "Our focus at Deliveree is solving the cargo and bulk goods challenges faced by businesses with our sophisticated marketplace technology accessed via mobile and web apps. In the end, this is much more capital efficient and hence scalable."
