What we do

TheLorry is a fast-growing on-demand platform that enables customers to get instant quotation and book a lorry, van or 4x4 within minutes. Currently, we are working with over 500 partners and 3,000 vehicles to serve both individual and commercial customers in Malaysia and Singapore.

Founded in September 2014, TheLorry offers on-demand cargo transportation services throughout Malaysia, connecting thousands of lorry and van owners with customers who wish to move anything – from household appliances to commercial cargo.

After raising a US$1.5 million series A round in early 2016 led by SPH Media Fund, with participation from Silicon Valley-based Elixir Capital, we are growing very quickly and expanding into other Southeast Asian countries, with Singapore as the first market outside of Malaysia to leverage on the high volume of cross-border logistics between the two countries.

Why we do

  • Dec2c4b3 0fec 48c7 acee 75718f3ed35f Our Co-founders Goh Chee Hau and Nadhir Ashafiq
  • E465e880 e2b7 4e31 be6d 486b6772ef0d

It all started when our founder, Nadhir Ashafiq, was tasked to create and head a new courier unit, focusing on international parcel logistics at his previous job. Over the course of few weeks doing research, he quickly learned that this market was intensely competitive and they were going against mammoths such as PosLaju, DHL and TNT.

He soon began to experiment with the lorry rental market — just to test what sort of response he'd get with a simple advertisements. He received calls almost everyday enquiring about “lori sewa”. I did a few transactions just based on this ad, making him realise that there was a sizeable market for lorry transportation.

The way TheLorry works is an elegant solution for everyday consumer needs: individual customers just need to go to the site to book vehicles and if necessary, other extra services such as manpower, boxes, packing, and dismantling. Then jobs will be dispatched to TheLorry’s vendor app where vendors can claim on a first-come, first-serve basis.
