2GO, the Philippines’ largest integrated transportation and logistics provider, has launched its Asinan Crossdock Facility – its largest to date at the SM Warehouse complex along C-5 Extension, La Huerta, Paranaque City, the company announced Monday, September 12.
The 2GO Asinan cross-dock, where goods are unloaded from inbound delivery vehicles and loaded directly onto outbound vehicles, covers 11,000 square meters and can accommodate 2,500 pallets.
The facility can accommodate high volumes of FMCG shipments to Mega Manila, North Luzon, and South Luzon customers.
“The location of our Asinan Crossdock facility shows the synergy and the support that the SM group is giving to 2GO,” says Chairman, President, and CEO Frederic C. DyBuncio.
“The group believes that logistics is a very important sector in the growth of the Philippine economy. And that’s why we decided to invest even more in the logistics space,” he added.
“Location is key to achieving supply chain efficiency, and Asinan provides us with the site’s proximity to the Skyway, SLEX, and Cavitex,” 2GO Logistics and Distribution business unit head Anna Vicencio reiterated.
‘Given this, we thought it best to integrate our operations for Mega Manila and South Luzon all in one place,” she noted.
“With the opening of this new facility, we will be able to move goods – both food and non-food – faster and more efficiently, providing better quality of service to our customers,” Vicencio elaborated.
2GO Group, Inc. has five business units, namely, 2GO Sea Solutions, 2GO Special Containers, 2GO Logistics, 2GO Express, and 2GO Distribution.
2GO is a subsidiary of SM Investments Corporation, one of the largest conglomerates in the country.
Backed by 148 years of expertise in transportation and logistics, it offers multimodal transportation, warehousing and inventory management, distribution, special containers, and project logistics as well as e-commerce logistics, including last-mile deliveries, and express courier deliveries.
