Sornet; Lalamove Automotive Managing Director April Dannah Majarocon; and Lalamove Automotive Sales Operations Manager Jeff Balanga.

Hyundai and Lalamove have announced a partnership that allows business owners to get the most of their H-100 trucks. 

The partnership will provide several benefits to Lalamove partners using Hyundai’s H-100 vans. These include discounts for parts and service, faster turnaround on preventive maintenance service (PMS), fixed rate for pick-ups and delivering units for PMS, and a program for fleet expansion and re-fleeting.  

The program aims to empower micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and large corporations alike by reducing transportation cost, expanding consumer reach, and helping ensure on-time deliveries. 

“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,” said Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (HARI) president and CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo.

The H-100 is the perfect vehicle for transporting cargo and passengers alike thanks to its powerful engine and wide wheelbase. The 2.5-liter CRDi Euro 4 engine also has great fuel efficiency and follows modern standards of reduced carbon emissions.

Apart from the engine, the 1335 kilograms of payload capacity is also one of the best in class. Aside from cargo space and fuel emissions, the H-100 also prioritizes driver comfort with an adjustable driver’s seat and powerful centrally mounted, all-around ventilation with optional air conditioning to make long haul driving much more pleasant. 

The vans can also stand the test of time thanks to the 7-dip electrodeposition process that produces a durable and rust proof coating. Every H-100 is also backed by Hyundai’s 5-years unlimited mileage warranty. 

“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,” said Dannah Majarocon, managing director, Lalamove Philippines.

“This partnership targets the ‘last mile’ logistics challenge for businesses and end customers. The H-100 and Lalamove will ensure that partners get to maximize profit without having to maintain their own fleet,” added Agudo.
