INTEGRATED logistics and transport provider 2GO Group Inc. said it has eliminated inefficiencies in supply chains through its latest service innovation, 2GO Connect.
According to company officials, 2GO Connect offers fast, reliable and direct service to modern trade points of sales nationwide. It is an attractive option for businesses since it enables inventories to be delivered straight to the malls and the modern trade, bypassing multiple handling points. With 2GO Connect, the cost of transportation is dramatically reduced and the product quality is safeguarded.
“We integrate our broad multimodal transportation services to enable fast, reliable and direct service to replenish goods at the malls, as the economy gradually reopens in 2021,” 2GO chief operating officer Waldo Basilla said. “This gives customers from the Visayas and Mindanao regions access to the same catalogues available in Metro Manila, almost at the same time that it is launched,” he added.
2GO Connect leverages its unique Ropax service and its expansive landside network to deliver to core mall destinations such as Cebu, Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro and Bacolod four times weekly.
“Cargoes are consolidated at the origin, and those bound for the same destination are grouped in a container and created a train-like schedule for regular deliveries straight to the malls,” Basilla explained.
Moreover, this new supply chain solution allows businesses the flexibility to replenish stocks which is driven by consumer demands and changing market conditions. Basilla stressed the importance of logistics in reviving the Philippine economy, saying, “2GO is confident that with our continuous innovation, we will not only help businesses meet their needs, but more importantly, connect them to the ultimate consumer in a timely manner.”
The company said it foresees a growth from this service as the Philippine economy regenerates post-pandemic. (PR)
