2GO Express, the courier solutions provider of 2GO Group Inc., is geared up to deliver to more areas across the Philippines for the Christmas holiday rush and beyond.
With the boom in e-commerce, 2GO Express serves 95 percent of the country’s online population nationwide, and is looking forward to widen its coverage in support of social sellers, which increased exponentially during the pandemic.
“The Philippines is a very strong market for e-commerce, and that includes your MSMEs [micro, small, and medium enterprises]. Everyone would gravitate towards the larger platforms, but we are also seeing a growing number of social sellers and mono brands, and they’re localized,” says 2GO Express Senior Corporate Sales Manager for E-Commerce Honeylyn Sanchez.
“We have seen micro-enterprises like social sellers continuously growing in the Philippines for the past two years, and we intend to ride on that wave. Social sellers make an impact on retail businesses online,” she added.
2GO Express currently services more than 33,000 or over 75 percent of all barangays nationwide and is looking to grow this through key investments, which includes more omnichannel solutions to be rolled out for shippers, and their customers and consignees.
“We have been growing our service coverage and reliability, especially in the provinces, by setting up more hubs to speed up deliveries, as well as adding close to 1,000 drop-off locations—a hybrid of owned and third-party outlets—so that customers have more touch points,” notes 2GO Express AVP for Product Development Xervin Maulanin.
2GO Express is one of the country’s few last-mile companies to utilize an automated sorting machine to makes deliveries more efficient through an enhanced data capture system by segregating parcels down to the barangay level.
To even liven up the holidays, the firm recently launched its “Pasko, Delivery, Panalo” raffle promo where customers can go to a participating outlet to book a delivery.
Each transaction entitles customers to a raffle entry for a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7, Samsung Galaxy A03 Smartphone, or a Sail and Stay package to Cebu and Boracay from 2GO Travel, or an SM Gift Pass worth P5,000. Promo runs until January 24, 2023.
Moreover, those booking deliveries in 2GO outlets at SM Mall of Asia, SM Manila, and SM Fairview can have their gift items wrapped free for every transaction made until January 5, 2023.
