LBC has recognized the need for an enhanced program to serve the burgeoning consumer market developing in the northern part of the country. As part of their resolve to continuously build and grow their capability, LBC has kicked off operations of the new Warehouse named Kapayapaan.
Located within the Mexico Industrial Complex, Panipuan, Mexico Pampanga, the 6,300 sqm. Kapayapaan Warehouse compound is 90 kilometers or two hours travel time from Metro Manila via the North Luzon Expressway.
The facility has elevated loading bays that can receive up to 20 x 40w trucks and side loading bays that can accommodate 4 x 10w trucks simultaneously, and has adequate 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; equipped with a Fire Detection and Alarm System.
According to Jerome S. Santos, LBC Vice President for Corporate Sales, LBC is seeing a significant consumption boom in the northern part of the country and the Kapayapaan Warehouse will serve as an initial take off point for increased warehousing demand in the north. The opening of the warehouse is the first step of a planned program of northward expansion that includes the opening of another warehouse in the Pangasinan–Tarlac area by next year. LBC’s goal, Mr. Santos explained, is to make transport going to and from the north more efficient by situating warehouses close to TPLEX, thereby minimizing the entry of big trucks into congested and traffic prone cities.
In addition to increasing their warehousing services, LBC continues to offer other solutions to meet the needs of various businesses. These include: Cold Chain services, which offers a dedicated, fully monitored and temperature-controlled movement of sensitive products anywhere in the Philippines for volumes of Container or Full Truck Load (FTL); Specialized Logistics which helps businesses fulfill their quality service promise to customers nationwide; and, NVOCC (Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier) which makes maximum use of LBC’s extensive logistics expertise to import and export domestic and international cargo – moving container shipments to gateway ports.
According to Santos: “The Filipino people’s unwavering support encourages LBC to improve and do better. Rest assured that we will endeavor to evolve, develop and expand LBC so that we can reach more people, cater to more businesses, and deliver the superior professional service that we believe every Filipino individual, family or business truly deserves”.
