Thai-based delivery app protects wellbeing of 40,000+ drivers
Lalamove, Thailand’s on-demand delivery platform, with an app that promises ‘fast delivery within 1 hour’, is giving its 40,000+ drivers in Thailand health, life, car and bike, plus accident cover by partnering with Thai-based Frank Insurance Broker.
The Frank insurance packages for drivers who fulfil the criteria set by Lalamove include Personal Accident Insurance, Vehicle Insurance as well as Compulsory Health Insurance for all Lalamove drivers in Thailand.
According to Marketing Manager at Lalamove, Pasit Thiannapapornchok, the move is a sign that Lalamove is expanding its sense of corporate responsibility and best practice business development as the company grows.
“Caring for our Lalamove drivers through adequate health, life, vehicle and medical insurance is about adopting a clear sense of community within the company and of looking after the wellbeing of our valued Lalamove team here in Thailand. The business has grown dramatically since first setting up five years ago, so it makes business sense to look after our drivers too as they are our most valued assets. Beyond this, we firmly believe that good business in 2018 and beyond is about responsible business accountability,” Pasit said.
Frank Insurance Brokers is a leading online insurance platform in Thailand and therefore a local partner.
Specialising in personal insurance cover, the Lalamove insurance announcement sees Frank move to the B2B sector for the first time.
Frank Insurance Broker Co-Founder and Managing Director, Harprem Doowa highlights how the insurance packages offer not only peace of mind but motivation for drivers to feel part of a feel-good team.
“Business is ultimately about people and by offering team players adequate insurance coverage, Lalamove is giving drivers an incentive to be loyal to the brand, adopt a corporate culture that is people-focused and feel relaxed and happy in their day-to-day work; all of which passes on to the end-user. Insurance is not just about protection, it is about progress and creating a positive working environment. Frank Insurance Brokers welcomes the opportunity to support Lalamove in their quest to provide care packages for their drivers in Thailand.”
Alongside joining forces with Frank, Lalamove is in the process of developing valuable relationships with potential partners across various verticals, such as food and beverage, banking and telecommunications, which are to be announced soon; creating value and best service benefits for Lalamove drivers and consumers alike.
