LBC Express has opened a new warehouse in Pampanga, part of its ongoing drive to expand its service to customers in the north.

Currently in full operations, the 6,300-square meter (sqm) Kapayapaan Warehouse located within the Mexico Industrial Complex, Brgy. Panipuan, Mexico, Pampanga aims to serve the northern region.

About 90 kilometers (km) from Metro Manila via the North Luzon Expressway, the facility has elevated loading bays that can receive up to 20-by-40 trucks as well as side loading bays that can accommodate 4-by-10 trucks simultaneously. It also boasts of spacious parking for big trucks and vehicles.

The state-of-the-art warehouse, which has an optimum capacity of 5,200 pallets, is properly lit and ventilated and equipped with a fire detection and alarm system.

LBC, in a statement, said the Kapayapaan warehouse is the first step of a planned program of northward expansion that includes opening another warehouse in the northern Luzon area this year.

LBC’s move to strategically erect warehouses close to Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway aims to minimize the entry of big trucks in congested and traffic-prone cities, the company said.

LBC has also recently opened a warehouse facility located in Lanang, Davao to cater to the booming economies of both Visayas and Mindanao.

Strategically located 5.5 kilometers (km) from the Davao International Airport and only 3.7 km from the Davao-Sasa port, the warehouse sits on an 8,215-sqm lot with a covered area of 4,570 sqm. It also has elevated loading bays with up to 12 doors, and will soon be installed with solar panels, making the warehouse environment-friendly and cost-efficient.

“The country’s brisk economic activity needs to be matched with above-par services from LBC. Only by providing structures that offer a complete supply chain solution for businesses can we confidently say that we have served the Filipino consumers well,” LBC vice president for corporate sales Jerome Santos said.

LBC is steadily expanding both its domestic and global reach. Overseas, it operates in more than 20 countries with a network of over 1,200 branches and a pool of 5,300 partner agents.

In the Philippines, it operates three main hubs for sea cargo, located in Manila, Clark, and Cagayan de Oro. It runs more than 70 delivery hubs, managing a team of 1,410 delivery associates and over 6,000 employees across the country.

LBC has been investing heavily in a three-year digital transformation program to further automate its processes and respond to changes in the logistics industry.
