Mr Shing Chow
Shing Chow (Chow Shing Yuk) is the founder and CEO of Lalamove, an on-demand logistics platform that disrupts the logistics industry.
Born in Guangdong province and raised in Hong Kong, Shing scored ‘10As' in the Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE) before graduating from Stanford University with distinction. He then started his career as a management consultant at Bain & Company and went on to become a successful professional Texas hold ‘em player.
In 2013, the sharing economy and wave of mobile internet startups had begun to take off. Shing saw the opportunity to create value for the logistics industry in Asia, which was quite traditional at the time, by applying the logical mindset and analytical skills he drew from his past experiences to transform the industry through digitalisation. Shing established Lalamove in Hong Kong, a 24/7 on-demand delivery company that connects customers and drivers through technology, offering fast and convenient ways to book same-day or advanced delivery services.
Today, Lalamove operates in over 30 cities across Asia and Latin America. Its operation covers more than 350 cities in mainland China, under the brand name of Huolala.
Lalamove is designed to empower merchants, drivers and the community through technology. As the founder of the locally-grown technology company that houses one of the largest tech teams in the market, Shing is passionate in driving innovation in Hong Kong and the wider region.
Shing is an enthusiast in running and a strong believer of health as the source of well-being in life and the fuel behind one’s career. He advocates, inspires and encourages the Lalamove team to pursue a healthy and active lifestyle.
