2GO, the logistics arm of the Aboitiz Transport System Corp., sees a P6-billion business opportunity if Mindanao hog growers shift from shipping live cattle to processed and frozen meat, 2GO president and chief executive Sabin Aboitiz said.

The practice will also cut shipping and logistics costs, reduce health and sanitation issues and put less pressure on port infrastructure, he added.

“In order to bring down cost, they (live cattle) have to be frozen. When you transship live cattle, because of the distance, they get thin because they are not being fed,” Aboitiz said.

“The freshness of the meat is also maintained if shipped via cold chain facilities compared to the existing practice,” Aboitiz added.

Two weeks ago, 2GO launched is cold chain business, marketed heavily to small and medium businesses.
