Co-founder and CEO, Pickupp
Pickupp's Crystal Pang has boosted the efficiency of deliveries
The internet economy is all very well, but it still often relies on selling physical objects that need to be moved from one place to another. That’s where Crystal Pang comes in. She is the co-founder and CEO of Pickupp, which partners with logistics providers, allowing it to avoid the costs of owning its own vehicles, instead using smart software to guarantee expert matching of order and provider. Guaranteeing four-hour, same-day or three-day deliveries, it works with different e-commerce providers, claiming that it can save them an average of 28 per cent of their logistics costs.
Operating in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Taiwan, it has received funding from investors, including Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund, Cyberport Macro Fund, Swire Properties, SparkLabs Taipei, Cathay Ventures and Far Eastern Group. From a software engineering background, Pang started her career in investment banking, working at Credit Suisse and Merrill Lynch. Before founding Pickupp, she was deputy CEO of financial data analytics start-up ChinaScope and worked in operations and community engagement for Uber, where she was part of the Hong Kong launch team.
