KUALA LUMPUR, 25 May 2021 – In preparation to meet further rise in demand for groceries online during the tightened Movement Control Order (MCO) 3.0, Lazada has strengthened its logistics operations to empower local grocers with 24-to-48-hour delivery services, while also supporting homebound communities with daily Free Shipping vouchers on essential items.

Since last year, the number of local grocers that have digitalised through Lazada to future-proof their business has nearly doubled too. We stand ready to continuously connect thousands of homegrown grocers with more than one-third of the local population shopping on the Lazada app every month,” said Sherry Tan, Chief Business Officer, Lazada Malaysia.

Homebound Malaysians can rest easy knowing that we will ensure their groceries are delivered fast and on time throughout the tightened MCO 3.0. We urge the local community to make use of the daily Free Shipping vouchers provided to shop safely from home and help curb the spread of COVID-19. We are also conducting contactless delivery for the safety and peace of mind of all our customers and staff.”
