3 Common Misconceptions Small Businesses Have Regarding On-Demand Delivery
Logistical management can often be a daunting task for many…
We all know how quickly time flies, but at Asia’s fastest growing same day logistics provider, time simply vanishes in the blink of an eye.
2016 has been an incredibly exhilarating ride for the GOGOVAN Singapore team. As we approach the end of the year, let’s take a look through our rear-view mirror to recap the most memorable 2016 highlights:
1. Series C Funding
In May 2016, GOGOVAN’s Series C funding round attracted various investors including Alibaba Group, New Horizon Capital, Singapore Press Holdings, Hotung Investment Holdings and other existing investors.
The funding serves as a testament to the immense potential of the on-demand logistics industry, and the faith placed in GOGOVAN’s ability to fill up the gap in this sector.
The fresh funding will allow us to improve on service offerings and product diversification in order to better cater to various logistic needs. Keep a look out of what we have to offer next year! Follow us on Facebook for more updates.
2. Drivers’ Appreciation Party
GOGOVAN has come such a long way since we first started out on this sunny island (If you still haven’t heard the story of GOGOVAN SG’s birth, watch it here!). And who better to celebrate our achievements with than our very own drivers?
For our 2nd Anniversary, we threw a drivers’ appreciation party to celebrate the hard work and dedication of those who have been silently yet tirelessly driving GOGOVAN forward. An evening well spent with good food, great music and amazing company (pun well intended), pulling the GOGOVAN family so much closer together. #SquadGoals
3. Beta Launch of GOGOENTERPRISE
As a leader in the on-demand delivery industry, GOGOVAN seeks to revolutionise logistics through constant innovation. With the launch of GOGOENTERPRISE, our very own intelligent delivery management platform, corporate clients are now able to manage large volumes of orders much more conveniently.
GOGOENTERPRISE empowers businesses to oversee their own bulk deliveries while having direct access to our 12,000 strong fleet.

4. Most Enterprising Solutions of the Year (For Start-ups)
Being in the logistics industry means we’re unafraid of getting our hands dirty, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get glammed up, too!
At this year’s Supply Chain Asia Industry Night, the GOGOVAN team was humbled to receive the “Most Enterprising Solutions of the Year (For Startups)” award, which recognises start-ups for offering innovative solutions to enhance productivity.
The Supply Chain Asia (SCA) Board of Advisors consists of various industry leaders, including FedEx, Accenture, and IBM.
5. Official Logistics Partner of Standard Chartered Marathon 2016
Earlier this month, GOGOVAN sportingly took part in the annual Standard Chartered Marathon, not to run the 42km full marathon (thankfully), but to run the behind-the-scenes as their Official Logistics Partner.
Living up to the slogan “logistics never sleeps”, our drivers were on standby overnight to support the marathon’s transportation and baggage storage requirements.
It was undoubtedly a daunting task to support one of the largest marathons on the island, but GOGOVAN is proud to announce that we, along with over 49,000 runners, successfully conquered the last mile!
GOGOVAN Of Tomorrow
Today, GOGOVAN boasts a network of 12,000 registered drivers, 99% fulfillment rate, 60 seconds response time and 4.6 stars rating on Google Play.
None of these would have been possible without the support of our drivers, customers, corporate clients and various partners, who are truly the diesel to our van and the trolley to our bulky parcel.
Next up, 2017. In spite of all the challenges and uncertainty that may lay ahead, GOGOVAN strives to continue delivering our best. Let us work together to Make Logistics Great Again.
