Key Highlights

  • Penang-based DeliverEat is being acquired by AirAsia for $9.8 million.
  • As part of the acquisition, DeliverEat's founders Leong Shir Mein and Tan Suan Sear will join the management team at AirAsia's Teleport.
  • Teleport's broader plans are to offer door-to-door deliveries in under 24 hours across the entire Southeast Asia.
  • The deal is expected to close by Q3 2021.

Why It Matters

  • AirAsia aims to build a comprehensive end-to-end logistics chain, from first-mile to last-mile deliveries — a space not fully dominated by rivals Grab and Shopee.
  • Earlier last month, AirAsia announced the acquisition of GoJek Thailand's operations.
