Carpedia’s 9 Year Journey From Car Rental Service to Logistic Gig Talent Platform

Carpedia’s 9 Year Journey From Car Rental Service to Logistic Gig Talent Platform

Founded in 2015, Carpedia is a gig talent platform for logistic players which aims to play a role as a reliable provider of delivery manpower resources, priding itself on “simple gig jobs almost anyone can do”, requiring nothing more than a valid driving licence, ensuring that work can start within 48 hours of registration.

Given that the gig economy looks to be here to stay, with some estimates putting the number of gig workers at around 4 million here in Malaysia, with a majority being young adults aged 25 to 44, there are plenty of startups and companies that are looking to tap into the opportunity to better facilitate and support the gig economy, including today’s guest.

We speak to Hazim about their role in the gig economy, the business opportunity present here for Carpedia, why he got started with this, and the vision for this startup.
