Lalamove chief executive Shing Chow says the company plans to operate in 60 cities by the end of the year.

Hong Kong logistics start-up Lalamove has raised US$30 million to expand across more cities in China and Southeast Asia, as the company readies for a potential public listing within the next three years.

Lalamove is an on-demand logistics service that was founded in Hong Kong in 2013.

Like Uber, users can hail a delivery van to help with tasks like home moving by placing an order on the Lalamove app.

Participating investors include Blackhole Capital, MindWorks Ventures and Crystal Stream.

Apart from Hong Kong, the start-up is currently operating in 40 Chinese cities, as well as Singapore, Manila, Bangkok and Taipei.
