KUALA LUMPUR, May 29 (Bernama) — Clean energy solutions provider Gentari Sdn Bhd, through its subsidiary Gentari Green Mobility Sdn Bhd, is collaborating with eCommerce company Lazada to pilot the electrification of its logistics operations with the introduction of 25 e-bikes for its last-mile delivery.

This followed the unveiling of Gentari’s long-term Vehicle-as-a-Service (VaaS) Electric Vehicle (EV) leasing solution for commercial fleets. 

Investment, Trade and Industry (MITI) Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz said the collaborative effort between Gentari and Lazada exemplifies the powerful synergy between the country’s growing e-commerce sector and sustainable transportation solutions.

“This alliance not only sets a benchmark for industries ‘converging’ and collaborating to accelerate decarbonisation efforts, but also catalyses significant innovations in last-mile delivery solutions.

“By leveraging Lazada’s expansive reach alongside Gentari’s clean energy expertise, we are spearheading a scalable transformation in green logistics,” he said during the Gentari Green Mobility initiative launch here today.

He said MITI is encouraged to see companies like Gentari and Lazada actively contributing to the collective Net Zero national target, stipulated through policies such as the Low Carbon Mobility Blueprint, the National Energy Policy, the New Industrial Master Plan 2030 (NIMP 2030) and the National Energy Transition Roadmap (NETR).

“We know that the usage of EVs will only increase with a supportive ecosystem. 

“As such, enhancing the charging infrastructure for e-bikes and establishing comprehensive battery charging standards for both public and home-charging facilities are crucial to achieve the critical mass of EV usage in Malaysia,” he added.

Meanwhile, deputy CEO of Gentari and CEO of Gentari Green Mobility Shah Yang Razalli said the VaaS leasing solution exemplifies innovation and underscores their commitment to broadening access to green mobility across various sectors, including the gig economy and businesses reliant on two-wheel transportation for last-mile delivery.

“This collaboration advances our green mobility initiatives and demonstrates the significant environmental benefits of integrating EVs into commercial fleets,” he said.

Shah Yang said promoting electric vehicles (especially electric two-wheelers or E2Ws) and developing charging infrastructure are essential steps toward a sustainable future.

Gentari leads this transformation with Malaysia’s largest network of licensed EV charging stations, he added. 

“Our extensive network features over 400 Gentari EV charging points, including 120 DC fast chargers.

“With chargers spread across 105 locations, we provide reliable and efficient charging solutions, ensuring seamless integration of EVs into daily operations for both businesses and individuals,” he said.
