“As part of our commitment to provide everyday solutions to common logistical problems across the Philippines, it is important for us to forge a partnership with a fleet provider that provides us quality units with the latest advancement in technology and customer service support. Indeed, FOTON has been consistent with their promise,” said J&T Express Philippines vice president Zoe Chi during the turnover ceremony of the 500th unit from FOTON held at its assembly plant at the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga.

Through this significant partnership and timely fleet expansion, J&T Express Philippines can continue serving hard-to-reach areas in the country while supporting local online enterprises amid the pandemic through its network of more than 600 branches across the Philippines.

The fleet expansion comes at a time when more and more businesses are turning to the digital space to make their presence and promote their brands as traditional brick-and-mortar shops were hit hard by the lockdowns.

As of 2020, e-commerce helped boost the growth of businesses in the country by as much as 55 percent, according to a report by Google, Temasek, and Bain and Company.

In a separate Visa Philippines survey, about 52 percent of the respondents said they did online shopping for the first time last year, and that they will continue the practice.

FOTON President Rommel Sytin said their preparation for this development started “more than two years ago when both of our companies partnered together to provide stronger logistics mobility service to adapt with the ever-growing demands of delivery and the booming success of e-commerce.”

Embodying versatility combined with proven dependability, the FOTON Tornado M 4.2C has empowered businesses ranging from big corporations to small and medium businesses.
