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 with fast delivery and same day delivery. Within our markets, whatever products you’re using today, there’s a good chance they were moved in one of our vehicles.”
Commenting on Gobi’s investment in Deliveree, Partner Kay-Mok Ku said, “Gobi is delighted to lead Deliveree’s Series A. On the heels of our successful investment in GoGoVan, we believe that Southeast Asian businesses will increasingly adopt similar marketplace technologies to solve challenging old-world logistics problems. Deliveree’s team, operating model, and technology are the best positioned to lead the industry in this region.”
