2Go Group Inc., the logistics arm of conglomerate SM Investments Corp., on Wednesday said it has prepared major hubs outside Metro Manila to meet the rising holiday season demand for cargo and delivery movements.
“As the country’s largest logistics service provider, we embrace the philosophy of readiness regardless of season. Anticipating the increase in logistics movement during this joyous time of year, we consistently invest in supply chain preparedness by establishing a foothold in our hubs and maintaining a capable workforce. We prioritize customer satisfaction and continue to deliver on our commitments to our customers and partners, ensuring success regardless of the season,” Frederic C. DyBuncio, president and CEO of 2Go and also of SMIC, said.
2Go said it visited Clarkfield and Subic Bay in Central Luzon, Cebu City in Central Visayas and Cagayan de Oro in Northern Mindanao, to strengthen main trade hubs across the country that serve as central points for consolidating and distributing goods.
Building its presence in these strategic locations allows 2Go to move deliveries faster for industries, businesses and for personal deliveries, the company said.
“2Go has embarked on a proactive initiative to collaborate with key stakeholders in important logistical regions across the Philippines. Reinforcing our presence in major gateways not only provides us with efficient forwarding and cargo services but helps our partners and clients increase market reach, find more opportunities, and bridge logistical requirements,” said Faye Anne Alonzo-Babar, business unit head for express and forwarding.
The company is also offering LCL, or less-than container-load, shipside services. This solution is operational in its Manila, Cebu, Iloilo, Zamboanga and Cagayan de Oro hubs.
According to 2Go, its LCL services continue to be offered in its network of 17 vital ports of call, which serve as gateways for both dry goods and temperature-controlled cargo. Its clientele includes top domestic and international FMCGs, manufacturers, distributors, industrials, and agricultural businesses, covering a wide range of industries across the nation. With LCL, 2GO extends logistics support to MSMEs and entrepreneurs, ensuring that businesses of all sizes benefit from our comprehensive solutions, the company said.
