Grab expects deliveries to surge during holidays

MALAYSIA-BASED startup company Grab is expecting a surge in delivery bookings for GrabExpress this holiday season. Grab Philippines country manager Brian Cu said that after the launch of GrabExpress in Cebu City last September, businesses of varying sizes have started using the delivery app to send their packages to any destination in Cebu. GrabExpress offers a convenient and faster way for businesses to send items such as documents, parcels, gifts and other small packages without having to fall in line at delivery centers or pay for additional manpower resources. “We are very excited to support the demand for GrabExpress in Cebu,” said Cu.

More bookings “We have been receiving several inquiries regarding logistics partnership from different local establishments in Cebu City and we hope to serve more delivery bookings especially in the coming holidays,” he added. Grab stressed that all parcels accepted by GrabExpress are safe and insured. It has real-time tracking that allows users to monitor their items until these get to their destination. Cu said GrabExpress makes deliveries more efficient for businesses in Cebu. Grab is Southeast Asia’s leading on-demand transportation and mobile payments platform. It currently offers services in Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Myanmar. (KOC)
