Indonesia’s Go-Jek launches first service abroad in Vietnam

Indonesia’s Go-Jek launches first service abroad in VietnamIndonesia’s fast-growing ride-hailing service Go-Jek launched its first International operations in Vietnam, with the brand Go-Viet now available on Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

This rollout was staged in District 1 and 3 of Ho Chi Minh City through the Go-Viet explorers programme. The service claims to have received applications of thousands of drivers and will be available in 12 districts across Ho Chi Minh City.

“Vietnam could benefit greatly from the services we will be offering. We hope the people of Vietnam will start seeing us as their go-to transport and logistics app as we head towards our full launch within the next few weeks.” said Duc Nguyen, Go-Viet’s CEO.

The company said it will continue to improve its technology as it receives feedback from a broader range of users ahead of a full launch that is expected to take place in the next few weeks.

Like Go-Jek, Go-Viet will also offer online transportation and logistics services. In the future, they will also accommodate Go-Jek’s other popular services, namely food delivery and electronic payments

In May, Google-backed Go-Jek had said it will invest $500 million on its International expansion that will include Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines.

Go-Jek said that the operations will be run by local founding teams, with the company providing technological support and expertise gathered over the past three years. Go-Jek’s tech team is currently spread across India, Singapore, and Indonesia.

Earlier this year, Go-Jek raised a reported $1.4 billion funding from investors like Google, Tencent, Temasek, Meituan-Dianping, JD.com and Astra International, among others. The company claims to have over one million registered drivers across Indonesia and facilitate over 100 million transactions per month.
