KUALA LUMPUR, 9 December 2015 – Logistics startup Zyllem today announces its regional service expansion into new markets Malaysia and the Philippines.
A Singapore-based leading logistics solutions provider, Zyllem will begin offering fast, reliable and cost-efficient same-day delivery services within Malaysia’s Klang Valley from today.
Zyllem enables and connects existing resources – freelance or local couriers, delivery drivers – to create reliable and efficient distribution networks, in turn creating a large number of jobs in this market.
Accessible via computer or any mobile device, Zyllem’s technology equips businesses with a sophisticated yet user-friendly solution to seamlessly and efficiently manage their logistics needs. This cutting-edge platform is available without any setup cost, complex systems amalgamation and tedious coordination among intermediaries.
Proven in Singapore over the past two years, the services will now be offered in the Klang Valley, and in the Philippines’ Metro Manila area.
Users can access Zyllem’s services on www.zyllem.com/my or the Zyllem app on iOS or Android, with services starting from as low as RM9 per delivery for items up to 5kg throughout the Klang Valley.
“Zyllem is entering this market as an innovator, providing small medium enterprises and large corporations with a simple yet efficient platform to fulfil their logistics needs. Malaysia’s Klang Valley is the most densely populated area with the highest e-commerce traffic. Therefore it makes perfect sense for us to begin operations in this area with its population of 7.5 million,” says Nabil Feisal Bamadhaj, Country Managing Director, Zyllem Malaysia.
“We are also currently working with the Malaysian government who is keen to explore our platform that provides job opportunities to the public. We have very exciting plans for this market,” he added.
Zyllem is a play on the botanical word ‘xylem’, which alludes to connectivity and transportation of essentials, and reflects precisely the company’s value proposition to Asia. Zyllem’s vision is to broaden its technology and service footprint in the region, with a long term plan to connect the world.
Noam Berda, CEO and Co-Founder of Zyllem says, “We entered the logistics scene in Singapore in 2013 and have since established ourselves as a frontrunner in last-mile deliveries, as well as one of the region’s most advanced logistics technology platforms. With our regional expansion, we aspire to ‘open the world’ by enabling distribution of goods globally.
“We see huge opportunities for Zyllem to help organisations and individuals across Asia – and be a key part of enabling the growing distribution ecosystem. We welcome collaborations with both local and regional partners to establish a leading logistics platform to service rapidly growing businesses such as e-commerce and retail across Asia Pacific and beyond.” says Mr Berda.
