The story of CarPal starts with its Founder/CEO, Maarten Hemmes. An innovator and entrepreneur at heart, Maarten launched his first startup in legal technology at the tender age of 22 in the Netherlands. Maarten also has over 10 years of software development experience through his own IT company serving clients in Europe, U.S. and South East Asia. Inspired by the uberization of services and recognising the rising demand in last-mile logistics in South East Asia, Maarten launched CarPal in July 2014 and a spin-off pet transportation app “PetMate” in October 2015.

CarPal is transforming the way local goods move around in cities by enabling anyone to get any product delivered within an hour. Through its revolutionary urban logistics & on-demand delivery platform, businesses and consumers can connect real-time with local couriers, who deliver goods or run errands on their behalves anywhere in a city.

In late 2016, CarPal has launched “CarPal Fleet” – an enterprise solution that allows businesses to control the entire supply chain without fully owning it, while our dedicated support team assists businesses to flourish with the use of our system.

Since launch, CarPal has been met with immediate success and exponential growth. CarPal is currently serving thousands of consumers as well as businesses across different industries in Singapore. It has closed a pre Series-A funding in January 2016, and currently expanding to multiple locations in the South East Asia.
