Lalamove and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency signed a Memorandum of Agreement to strengthen the coordination against drug proliferation in the country.
The partnership between two entities aims to avoid instances where the delivery platform can be misused by drug users or sellers. PDEA will be providing highly needed training and support to Lalamove to keep its operations drug-free.
“We in Lalamove have zero tolerance for illegal drugs and we believe in the government’s goal to quell the drug problem in our country. We value the safety and security of our partner drivers and users, that is why we are grateful for the support of PDEA in keeping our operations drug-free.” shares Dannah Majorocon, Managing Director of Lalamove Philippines.
“The signing of the agreement should pave the way for other delivery service courier companies to be diligent and provide enough safeguards to prevent further transport of illegal drugs using online platforms.” PDEA Director General Wilkins M. Villanueva said.
With the digitalization of logistics, many took the opportunity to grow their business and gain employment while some try to exploit the given convenience for illegal activity. Hopefully, with this partnership, users of Lalamove can rest easy knowing their deliveries are safe and drug-free.
