The funding will be used to strengthen Lalamove’s technological and innovation capabilities in China and Southeast Asia, its expansion into India, and new businesses such as car sales.
“Technology is redefining what can be achieved in the logistics industry, and Lalamove’s outstanding management team has placed it at the forefront of this trend,” said Lei Zhang, founder and CEO of Hillhouse. “We have been impressed with the company’s success in Southeast Asia and China, and believe it is well-positioned to bring more efficient and convenient freight services to the sector.”
