LBC Powers up the Logistics business with its New Warehouses!

LBC continues its dominance over the Philippines’ logistics industry with the opening of warehouses to serve customers- all the way from the North down to the South.

Currently in full operations is the 6,300 sqm Kapayapaan Warehouse located within the Mexico Industrial Complex, Brgy. Panipuan, Mexico Pampanga aimed to service the northern region. About 90 kilometers from Metro Manila via the North Luzon Expressway, the facility’s expanse has elevated loading bays that can receive up to 20 x 40w trucks and side loading bays that can accommodate 4 x 10’ trucks simultaneously. It also boasts of a spacious parking for big trucks and vehicles. The state-of-the-art warehouse, which has an optimum capacity of 5,200 pallets, is properly lit and ventilated and equipped with a Fire Detection and Alarm System.

The Kapayapaan warehouse is the first step of a planned program of northward expansion that includes the opening of another warehouse in the northern Luzon area this year. LBC’s move to strategically erect warehouses close to TPLEX aims to minimize the entry of big trucks into congested and traffic prone cities.

This year, LBC opened yet another warehouse facility located at Lanang, Davao- this time to cater to the booming economies of both Visayas and Mindanao. Boost in sales by 28% from 2018 coming from various key existing and new accounts is reflective of the overall economic uptrend.

Strategically located at 5.5 kms. from the Davao International Airport and only 3.7 kms. from the seaport (Sasa Wharf), the warehouse sits on a 8,215 sqm lot with a covered area of 4,570 sqm. It also has elevated loading bays with up to 12 doors and will soon be installed with solar panels, making the warehouse environment-friendly and cost-efficient.

Only by providing structures that offer a complete supply chain solution for businesses can we confidently say that we have served the Filipino consumers well”.

DAY 4 – MARCH 4 – Van Operators Meeting

The last day of the 4-day Summit. The Department of Tourism visited the Summit, their topic could have been “Tourist Transport Service Endorsement” but due to limited time and participants the talk was cancelled. But I got the chance to ask them some questions regarding having a Travel Agency and Tourist Franchise. They say if you have a tourist franchise a Travel Agency should make the tour packages for you (so that the Travel Agency will have some work to do). So it is illegal to create a tour package if you are not a registered Travel Agency. But if you have Tour within your Coop (as an outing) then it is ok.

A meeting was held for the Van Operator members of Road Rent A Car TSC and tackled about the different options in traveling and doing legal transport business. Among the options were PITX Franchise Application, Logistics and updating the needed Rent A Car trip documents.
