Logistics company 2GO recently introduced ‘2GO CabinCargo’ in response to the need to move essential cargo at the shortest possible time from Manila to Visayas and Mindanao.
“2GO CabinCargo is the best alternative to air freight, while the airlines are reevaluating their plans,” 2GO chief operations officer Waldo Basilla said.
“By using our ropax fleet, which are the fastest vessels in the country that offers special handling of cargoes, we now offer the best lead times closest to air freight. We deliver to consumers in the key ports of Visayas and Mindanao within five days, from pick-up to delivery. With this option, shippers can simply adjust their supply chain by a couple of days and reestablish their product flows”, Basilla said.
Each vessel of 2GO CabinCargo has a maximum capacity of 14cbm, equivalent to a 10-footer container. Vessels accommodate around 164 boxes, with each box allowed to weigh up to 25 kilograms. Weight of packages are heavily considered as loading is done manually and handled with utmost care.
