GOINGS ON: Bus, supply chain, e-commerce firms merge to boost cargo delivery
A supply chain/ logistics firm and an e-commerce shipping company have tied up with the country’s largest bus company to boost cargo business in the Visayas and Mindanao.
In a recent signing ceremony, Quick Reliable (formerly known as QRS) and Xend Business Solutions inked a partnership agreement with Ceres, a group of bus companies operating major routes in the Visayas and Mindanao.
Emer Ilagan, Quick Reliable President, is happy to see the realization of the partnership, saying this will be a game changer in the country’s cargo delivery business.
“In an archipelagic country such as the Philippines, the battle in logistics has always been anchored on the efficient movement of goods outside Luzon and across our southern islands. Through Ceres and its proven knowledge of the Southern Philippines geography, plus the technological innovations of Xend, we are excited to hasten and improve cargo delivery in Visayas and Mindanao areas,” said Ilagan.
