Founder & CEO – EasyParcel
The founder and CEO of EasyParcel, Clarence Leong started his career as a material-science aerospace engineer in the UK before deciding to return to Malaysia to become an entrepreneur. The Penang native founded two start-ups before finally landing on a winner in 2014.
After the unsuccessful attempt at scaling his second start-up, Leong came up with a novel idea of streamlining shipping, and doing away with the unnecessary manual labour involved in delivering a parcel, which costs both time and money. He founded EasyParcel, a web-based parcel consolidator and e-commerce shipping solutions provider, which enables customers to book deliveries with multiple established courier companies at competitive prices.
With EasyParcel’s integrated e-commerce platform, customers can get quotes from multiple courier companies to get the best price, do a quick online-delivery booking, track their delivery and get auto-generated consignment notes. Today, EasyParcel has more than one million users including SMEs, with an average of 100,000 deliveries daily, and has a presence in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand.
In 2017, Leong also launched Pgeon, a new last-mile delivery option that offers customers the choice of collecting their parcels at a convenience store closest to their homes.
