TAGUIG CITY – XDE Logistics partners with Lazada Philippines to launch its newest facility in Barangay Ibayo-Tipas, Taguig City featuring an E-Commerce cross-dock and fulfillment hub. The facility commenced operations last September 5, 2019, in time for Lazada’s 9.9 Big Discovery Sale.
XDE Logistics CEO & Founder Jerome Ibañez, shared a personal experience in ordering online at the Lazada platform, “It is true that online shopping experience in Lazada is so convenient and the products are in high quality. This personal experience is what we want to replicate to all users of the platform – and that is why we are opening this new facility together with Lazada E-Logistics Philippines. Having a high-velocity cross-dock and fulfillment center placed in a strategic location within Metro Manila will allow XDE Logistics and Lazada to deliver a much better customer experience.”
The newly built 7,000 sqm XDE E-Commerce Hub was designed to the specifications of a modern warehouse where parcels are received, sorted and dispatched quickly and efficiently, while maintaining a high level of control and transparency. Mr. Ibanez also took the opportunity to introduce the XDExpres System – an end-to-end logistics solution that will give clients the opportunity to enjoy fast, reliable and convenient services from XDE Logistics. This system features XpresLand – a daily land & RORO trip service that will deliver to all major cities in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
“We are pleased to partner XDE Logistics as traditional logistics evolves into e-logistics within the region. With the logistics and e-commerce sectors continue to grow exponentially in the next few years, it is important to strengthen our e-logistics ecosystem and build capacity. Together with XDE Logistics, we will lead the charge in establishing a strong foundation in the e-logistics ecosystem,” said Juan Pavez, Lazada Philippines CEO for Logistics and Operations.
