The 202,000-square meter land was bought by MMI for P1.2 billion in 2018.

MMI also bought parcels of land with a total size of 27.7 ha in San Rafael, Bulacan, for P204.79 million.

The large distribution centers that MMI will build in Cavite (South Mega DC) and Bulacan (North Mega DC) will be the first of a series of logistics infrastructure that will sprout all over the country over a period of time to facilitate the movement of goods and to serve the company’s existing and potential clients in various industries.

Both the South Mega DC and the North Mega DC are expected to create thousands of new jobs in Cavite and Bulacan.

MMI, which started operations in May 2016, is engaged in the warehousing, transportation, freight forwarding, cross docking and parcel delivery service businesses.

It owns a fleet of 520 trucks of different sizes and configurations and operates over 200,000 sqm of aggregate warehouse space in strategic locations across Metro Manila, Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

Aside from investments in equipment, land acquisitions and large distribution centers, the company has been investing heavily in technology and training as part of its aspiration to become the top logistics provider in the Philippines.
