Column box-Al Mendoza-Full Tank

MY guest today will educate us on what Toyota Motor Philippines’ (TMP) Mobility platform is all about.  As the founding head of TMP’s newly-minted project, Cristina “Tini” Arevalo is perfect for the lecture, navigating for us the road map to Mobility’s thrust towards a new era in motorization.  Here:

“IT’S 2023! Are you up for a change?

“New Year. New mindset. New way of doing things.

“A lot has been said about the horrendous traffic in Metro Manila. Some blame it on too many cars on the road.  However, car owners say the lack of efficient and comfortable mass transport system forces people to rely on their own means to be mobile.

“Every day, we face many challenges in moving people and goods. The pain-points could not be single-handedly solved by government. Easing mobility in the country requires the combined effort of both the private and public sectors, for the way out of our daily grind will not be limited to just the improvement in road infrastructures and land transportation networks. We need to employ smarter ways of movement.

“Toyota, the largest player in the Philippine auto industry, puts its foot forward to contribute to the government’s direction to improve land transportation in the country, by establishing a new company:  Toyota Mobility Solutions Philippines, Inc. (TMSPH).

“Back in 2020, while everyone was busy coping, struggling to survive the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Toyota started laying the groundwork.  Silently but surely, it prepared modular systems and applications which we can later integrate into a larger, multi-modal transport scheme.

“Today, TMSPH offers a range of technology-driven solutions that can help address day-to-day mobility challenges, and bring forth a new lifestyle of convenience in business, eventually advancing the future of mobility in the Philippines.

“In a nutshell, TMP provides the hardware, while Toyota Mobility Solutions Philippines provides the software.

“TMSPH is a one-stop mobility solutions provider, championing vehicle usership platforms, beneficial for both individuals and companies requiring short or long-term use of vehicles, but want to be asset-light, and hassle-free of vehicle ownership.

“Asset use maximization underscores TMSPH’s digitalization projects, promoting resource efficiency, higher productivity, and improved business profitability.

“If you own a business or if your Company is looking for better and efficient ways to move employees or goods, push for improved employee motivation, or simply rationalize your vehicle assets, then TMSPH may be your able partner to help address your needs.

“Explore the benefits of TMSPH’s range of services through 1) Car Share/Rental (for individual and/or company use); 2) Booking app for employee shuttles or land transport networks; 3) Full-service vehicle operating lease (Kinto One Business); 4) Fleet Connected Service; 5) Fleet Management Service; and, 6) Logistics Matching Service.

“Step out of your comfort zone and use technologies that create opportunities to get the jobs done faster and better. Think of it this way: Happy employees make happy customers. Happy customers make better business.

“You can find us at or contact us at or +639275236992.”

IN the “Marvel Cinematic Universe,” one is deemed “worthy” if they can lift Thor’s hammer, just like what (spoiler alert!) Captain America did in the movie “Avengers Endgame.” In consumer lending, one of the most common ways to determine whether an individual is “worthy” of a loan is through credit scoring, a statistical analysis performed by lenders and financial institutions to determine the creditworthiness of an individual or sole proprietor, according to

Within your control

Carlo Atienza-Sui Generis

ONE of the significant lessons I picked up when I was still studying was the value of adopting a solution-based mindset. I was helping out as a production assistant in a church activity and there were several snafus backstage. But our floor director was ever so calm and gave quick solutions to whatever problem came along. After the event, I asked her how she could be so calm amid the chaos and she said, “In times when everything is up in the air, you need to focus on what is within your control so you can train your mind to find solutions.”

When will we ever learn?

The Philippine Statistics Authority said 40 percent of Filipino households depend on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for their daily cooking needs. These families are the potential victims of unsafe LPG tanks being sold by unscrupulous LPG suppliers. For example, if they happen to buy imported LPG tanks that are made of low quality steel, these Filipino households are unnecessarily exposed to the hazard of an LPG cylinder that can potentially explode.
