Vietnamese car and bike-hailing startup the Be Group JSC and its “be” app have opened an office in the Mekong Delta’s Can Tho city and begun to offer services.

“be” will expand to central Da Nang city in the very near future. With an operational motto of “the driver is the most important entity”, its business model is to help drivers have the best working environment and stable incomes, enjoying benefits such as social welfare and traffic accident insurance as well as receiving professional training from the company.

“The increase in ‘be’s’ customer numbers, network expansion, and rising market share have also helped drivers earn more income so they will do the job for a longer time,” said a representative from the Be Group. “The long-term goal for ‘be’ is greater recognition from the public about its drivers.”

The “be” car and bike-hailing app has been downloaded over on over 2 million mobile devices, and its 20,000 drivers conduct about 200,000 trips each day. Since its official launch in December, drivers have completed more than 5 million trips with beBike and beCar. The company is now aiming to attract 100,000 drivers by the end of this year, contributing to creating more jobs, paying more taxes, and at the same time providing better services to customers.

Six tech companies now operate in Vietnam’s transportation market: Grab, Fastgo, ABer, Vato, Go-Jek (Go-Viet), and “be”.
