Ninja Van Philippines, which recently celebrated its seventh year, has come a long way from its modest beginnings.

From an apartment in Makati City and employing four employees, the logistics and courier service company now operates a 21,000-square meter automated sorting hub in Cabuyao, Laguna, among other facilities, with more than 8,000 employees across its entire network.

The company helps micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) compete on the global e-commerce market by delivering their products to customers efficiently using Logistics +. A suite of supply chain management solutions, Logistics + is designed to help MSMEs navigate the intricate networks of suppliers, manufacturers, transportation providers, and financial service providers. Logistics+ now benefits more than 30,000 MSMEs in Southeast Asia.

For its seventh anniversary, themed “Dr7en: Todo Hustle, No Hassle”, Ninja Van showed off its largest sorting hub in Laguna, launched in 2022, to members of the media and other guests.

Jose Alvin Perez, country head of Ninja Van Philippines, underscored the hub’s role in enhancing the company’s tech-driven dedication to providing fast and reliable logistics solutions.

“[The] capabilities of our Cabuyao hub highlight our ongoing investments in tech-driven innovations that bring quick deliveries for the shippers who have continued to place their trust in us over the past seven years,” he said.

“Alongside our pursuit of operational excellence, our hustle continues to provide dedicated shipper support to round out a best-in-class logistics experience for our shipper partners.”

As part of the anniversary celebrations, Ninja Van thanked shippers who “hustled” to success with the company as a partner: Monarchy, Calliah Fashion, Sweet Night, Bona Vita, Arctic Hunter, The Diet Coach, Little Retail PH, and Chef Ayb’s Herbal Tea.

Sabina Lopez-Vergara, chief commercial officer of Ninja Van Philippines, noted the company’s “focus on innovation, reliability, and holistic support has set us apart in the industry. We are a growth partner committed to the success of our e-commerce sellers, supporting them beyond last-mile logistics with a suite of value-added services. We look forward to many more years of empowering businesses and driving success with them.”

Since its inception in 2016, Ninja Van Philippines has since reached 18 million shoppers, with 100% coverage from Cagayan province to Tawi-Tawi. The delivery fleet has also grown to more than 4,000.

Its Cabuyao hub handles around 90% of Ninja Van Philippines’ daily volumes, which include parcels, big packages, dangerous goods, liquid items, and high-value and fragile items.

The facility has fully integrated measurement and sortation systems. The double-deck cross belt system and wheel sorter system can automatically weigh, measure, and scan parcels at speeds of up to 2.2 meters per second. The system can provide real-time parcel data, increasing accuracy and efficiency in sorting and parcel tracking, and process 300,000 parcels a day at maximum capacity.

Last year, Ninja Van also opened a 5,000-square-meter hub in Novaliches, Quezon City in 2022 to help cater to delivery requirements in north Metro Manila, Central Luzon and Northern Luzon.
