KUALA LUMPUR, 8 May 2020 – After rolling out their SOCAR Business Mobility plan barely a month ago to assist SMEs and delivery agents, SOCAR is now expanding their B2B business with their latest slate of partnerships. The new partnerships with e-commerce delivery partners Teleport, MrSpeedy, Lalamove and Pickupp are in line with the company’s vision to empower Malaysians with more opportunities to generate income during the current economic uncertainty.
“At SOCAR, we constantly seek to use our technology to be champions of progress by partnering with businesses and stakeholders that share the same vision. We want to use our assets and platform to offer new means for Malaysians to generate extra income. With our vehicles, we are reducing the barrier to entry for Malaysians to join the sharing economy. At SOCAR, we aspire to not just be a transportation enabler but to also be a driver for economic growth. We have learnt from our research that businesses ultimately want a partner who can help drive them forward. Through SOCAR’s wide range of vehicles, competitive rates, convenient pick-up points and generous mileage and petrol allowance we can support businesses to grow sustainably while also reducing their day to day cash flow needs. Depending on their preference, these businesses can choose from over 2,000 cars in 1,000 locations in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Johor and Ipoh,” said Leon Foong, CEO of SOCAR Malaysia.

No pain from the rain this Ramadhan with SOCAR
“This Ramadhan, with popular food sources like bazaars and buka puasa buffets not operating as usual due to the conditional movement control order, efficient delivery of freshly prepared food and other items for festive preparations is more important than ever. Rainy weather can indeed be an unwelcome dampener, hence, we see SOCAR as an ideal option for independent delivery providers and small businesses to stay dry when delivering food and other items during rainy weather. This idea was sparked after seeing motorcyclists, including delivery agents, sheltering from the rain under flyovers and other ad-hoc rain shelters. With SOCAR as an alternative, we don’t want the rain to stop our brave frontliners from delivering the joy during this period,” added Leon.
All users that have made a SOCAR booking are entitled to free petrol worth 20km of mileage for each hour booked (capped at 240km for 12 hours booking). Users can also choose from hourly and daily bookings for a variety of cars ranging from Perodua Axia and Honda City to Volkswagen Polo and many more, available in over 1,000 locations.
This announcement also comes shortly after SOCAR Malaysia’s recent partnership with Honda to provide frontliners with mobility support.
