PickMe, Sri Lanka’s most successful technology driven transportations network recently entered into a partnership with Ideal Motors (Sole Authorized dealer and distributor of Mahindra) to strengthen PickMe’s truck fleet. Accordingly, drivers who purchase Mahindra trucks gain access to the PickMe driver partner force. Ideal Motors is the latest partner to join PickMe Trucks with a partnership agreement that will help expand the overall PickMe Truck Fleet. Pickme’s ‘Light’ and ‘Mover’ truck models transport heavy goods on demand through the award winning smartphone app. PickMe’s transport solution makes transportation cargo and domestic heavy goods more safe, affordable and convenient for both individuals and businesses.
“Our transport solution is a well strategized and streamlined one. Clients can monitor the goods-in-transit through the GPS technology readily available in the App. We essentially provide them a hassle-free, efficient and a reliable transportation solution at an affordable rate. Business owners who need to transport their products or purchased material as well as individuals who wish to transport their domestic goods can rely on our efficient service. Our partnership with Ideal Motors will help us further strengthen our cargo transport service and we plan to achieve islandwide coverage,” commented Isira Perera – Chief Operations Officer of PickMe.
Customers who wish to use the feature can launch the PickMe app on their mobile phones, and select the option ‘Trucks’ to access the cargo transport solutions features. The process thereafter would be similar to booking a vehicle. PickMe’s ‘Light’ category truck models which include well-known lightweight models are 7 feet in size. The ‘Mover’ category vehicles are 10 feet in size.
“This partnership allows us to provide our customers a value added service. It is truly a pleasure to work in collaboration with yet another truly Sri Lankan company such as PickMe to provide Sri Lankans with business opportunities,” commented Rakitha Wimalasekara, Deputy General Manager – Mahindra Operations of Ideal Motors Pvt Ltd.
