NONPAREIL International Freight and Cargo Service, Inc president Rolando Quiambao said his company is gunning for no less than the big league. Quiambao is also president of the Chamber of Customs Brokers, Inc.

NONPAREIL International Freight and Cargo Service, Inc has big dreams.

In the next five years, Nonpareil president Rolando E. Quiambao said he envisions the company to be on equal footing with multinational firms, not merely complementing their operations but competing head on with them.

Providing the edge over multinational firms is Nonpareil’s strong local structure that provides better flexibility for exporters and importers, Quiambao, who is also president of the Chamber of Customs Brokers, Inc, told PortCalls in an interview.

This early, Nonpareil is sowing seeds that will help bring its goals — including a minimum of 15% annual growth target — to fruition. It is investing heavily on people and improving systems. It is also looking at expanding its local and international network, acquiring more facilities such as better truck units, and establishing strategically located warehouses for better reach in the process offering faster transit times.

These efforts will undoubtedly help the company further win industry recognition. Last year, through Quiambao’s individual license REQ (Roland E. Quiambao) Customs Brokerage Services (which follows the mandate of Republic Act 9280 or the Customs Brokers Act of 2004), Nonpareil bagged its first award when it was adjudged by the Bureau of Customs as one of the top customs brokers in the country.

Quiambao takes a down-to-earth view of the award, saying it is merely an offshoot of hard work in the last 17 years. “This award is not for me but for my people. If not for their passion and hard work the company will not reach such a milestone,” he said, adding “We will use the award given as our inspiration in the years to come.”

“But all of this is really beyond figures. What is important is the continued trust, faith and training of people for the company,” Quiambao said.

From a five-employee company in 1990, Nonpareil has grown in revenues, facilities and services. It now owns a 1,200-square meter two-storey building and three warehouses.

Its services include customs clearance, transportation and distribution, warehousing, freight forwarding as well as third-party logistics and other supply chain solutions. It boasts a rigid 24-hour monitoring and tracking system, systematic reporting of all delivery expediters on duty, perpetual submission of daily itinerary reports and delivery update on a 15-30 minute interval or as required via SMS or use of mobile phones and handheld radios. — C.
