Published on : Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Vietnamese budget carrier Vietjet has signed an Memoradam of Understanding with Grab and local start-up Swift247 to provide super express delivery services in Vietnam as well as road and air travel solutions to consumers across South-east Asia.

 

This new strategic partnership marks the first collaboration between Vietjet and Grab. The companies said in a joint statement that the partnership allows both parties to develop low-cost solutions for road and air mobility.

 

Grab and Vietjet said they will meet on research and development to integrate both companies’ digital platforms, and aim to expand this system to other South-east Asian markets.

Grab and Vietjet will work with Swift247 to connect air flights with road transportation in super express delivery service. In the first phase, Swift247 customers will be able to deliver goods via GrabExpress and Vietjet aircrafts within five hours between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The customers can track their delivery on the website and Swift247 app. In future, the parties aim to integrate Swift247 services into the Grab open platform to make their services accessible to consumers of all parties.

 

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Vietjet president & CEO, Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, said that the partnership will bring in new changes in local delivery market and meet increasing demand for good delivery services.

 

 

Jerry Lim, country head of Grab Vietnam, said that they believe the strategic partnership with Vietjet and Swift247 is the first step for Grab to thrive for deeper cooperation with Sovico Holdings, one of the leading conglomerates of Vietnam, to bring more value-added services to people across the country.

 

Especially, the strategic partnership with Swift247 and Vietjet proves our strong commitment in investing more towards the digitalisation of transport infrastructure, helping local enterprises to expand regionally and developing home-grown startups.

 

 

GrabExpress’ services in Vietnam only include on-demand delivery service, same-day delivery and cash on delivery.
