Sending gifts to my family and friends is my way of telling them that I remember them and value them. It is funny to think that I no longer have “wants”, and I mostly shop for people I love. I oftentimes send my friends/family gifts so they can also experience the feeling of receiving gifts even if there is no occasion (the same way I do as a blogger).
2GO Express is geared up to deliver to more areas and more customers across the Philippines ahead of the holiday rush and even beyond given the e-commerce boom in the country.
To date, 2GO Express serves 95% of the online population nationwide. The company is looking to widen its coverage in support of social sellers, which increased exponentially during the pandemic.
“The Philippines is actually 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 monobrands, and they’re localized,” said Honeylyn Sanchez, 2GO Express Senior Corporate Sales Manager for E-Commerce.
“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.
Currently, 2GO Express services more than 33,000 or over 75% of all barangays nationwide and is looking to grow this in the coming months through various key investments. This includes more omnichannel solutions to be rolled out for shippers, as well as 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 touchpoints,” said Xervin Maulanin, 2GO Express AVP for Product Development.
2GO Express is one of the few last-mile delivery companies in the Philippines to utilize an automated sortation machine, which makes deliveries more efficient through an enhanced data capture system by segregating parcels and packages down to the barangay level.
A few weeks ago, I asked my sister-in-law to do a quick Holiday Shopping for me and my nephew, Liam. I was on vacation in Japan, and my sister-in-law happily shopped for Liam’s fave cookies, snacks, and milk. We also got something for mom and dad. Since Liam is staying at his granddad’s house, we sent him the goods through 2GO.
It is nice to see his video as he unboxed the pink package. Thank you, 2Go!
