LBC teams up with Japanese courier
LBC EXPRESS Inc., a leading courier, logistics, and remittance company in the country, recently entered into a cooperative agreement with Japan’s Sagawa Express to provide wider coverage to the latter’s services.

“With the mutual cooperation with LBC, we’ll be able to deliver to other regions in the country,” said Lawrence Mendoza, CEO of Sagawa Express Philippines. “Our customers will now be able to send their packages and cargo to more areas in the Philippines using our joint service,” he continued.
Through the agreement, Sagawa now has access to the extensive network of LBC, consisting of more than 1,200 domestic branches in strategic locations across the Philippines.
LBC president and COO Miguel Camahort and SG Holdings Global president and regional head Tomoki Sano signed the agreement between the two companies recently.
“We wish to ‘open doors’ and opportunities in this cooperation with Sagawa,” said Camahort. “For now, under the agreement, LBC will provide last-mile fulfillment for Philippine-bound Sagawa packages and cargo. We hope that this as a first step in working better together with (Sagawa) to serve both the Japanese and Filipino markets.”
