Since the outbreak of the coronavirus at the beginning of this year, delivery service has been in growing demand. From distribution of medical supplies, to sending specimen sample for COVID-19 viral test, to groceries home delivery, the community demands that require a fast and secure logistics solutions have been fast growing. Committed to connecting citizens in demand of real-time delivery service with cargo van drivers instantly by a mobile app, Cyberport alumni GOGOVAN has created a comprehensive logistics network which plays an essential role during the epidemic.
Braving the epidemic with a comprehensive on-demand logistics solution
Since April, GOGOVAN has been working with the Department of Health to provide door-to-door specimen collection service for COVID-19 viral testing. Citizens or inbound travellers can book the service via the online platform for the collection team to gather their deep-throat saliva specimens and get them quickly and safely delivered to the designated clinics or laboratories. It offers a convenient option for the public to test for the virus.
In addition, during the epidemic, vital medical supplies such as surgical masks, hand sanitiser, disinfection alcohol are in high demand. GOGOVAN has synergised with another Cyberport incubatee, Me2You, to collect these supplies from 50 locations and get them distributed to individuals in need, particularly the elderly living alone or patients with chronic diseases.
More well-thought services have also been launched. For example, GOGOVAN unveiled the new GoGoDelivery service with the aim to help people under compulsory quarantine to purchase groceries and daily necessities. This highly-personalised superlative delivery service is providing the community an important benefit—by reducing the risk of community infection, this allows people under mandatory quarantine to stay safely in-place—with minimal contact with others.
