FUSO Philippines strengthens Sales and Aftersales tie-up with Shopee Xpress

Filed under: Press Release — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — Marketing FUSO @ 3:19 pm

Paranaque City, Philippines — Focusing on providing extensive logistics support for fast delivery time and safe shipment of products nationwide, Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation (SFP), the general distributor of FUSO trucks and bus in the Philippines continues to strengthen Sales and Aftersales support to one of the leading e-commerce platforms in Southeast Asia, Shopee Philippines. Last July 2021, SFP turned over ten (10) FUSO FJ 2528R Wing Van trucks to SPX Philippines, Inc. (Shopee Xpress), the company’s standard delivery service.

Launched in 2015, Shopee aims to provide customers with an easy, secure, and fast online shopping experience through strong payment and fulfillment support. With more people relying on ordering, delivering, and tracking items due to pandemic, SFP considers this partnership is a great choice for improving operational efficiency.

The FJ 2528R, a 25-tonner, 10-wheeler is the first heavy duty truck in the Philippines to have a natural 32-feet loading span. The truck’s size and its toughness make it ideal for distribution of products across the country. Powered by a fuel-efficient 6S20 diesel engine, FJ can deliver an output of 281 HP and 1120 N-m of torque. The 6S20 engine is mated to a 9-speed manual transmission with double synchronizer designed for quicker and smoother operation, better acceleration, and fuel economy. The FJ is also equipped with dual circuit full-air brakes for a more reliable braking performance.

The Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) provide additional safety and utmost care to deliver goods and cargoes. The FJs then are expected to travel and deliver the products from Shopee sellers nationwide.

Another pillar of this partnership is the Aftersales services. Last August 7 and September 6, SFP conducted a wide range of training programs such as Basic Truck Information, Periodic Maintenance Service, Safety Driving Measures, and Efficient Driving to Shopee’s drivers and operations team. This ensures proper handling of the FJ 2528R.

Shopee appreciates SFP’s assistance in training our drivers and operations team – “We hope that these programs will help our drivers manage the trucks better and our daily operations run more smoothly.” says SPX Philippines, Inc. (Shopee Xpress) Logistics Head, Mr. Jessie Baylon.

Shopee is known for offering seamless and reliable services to million of users nationwide. SFP is proud to handover a brand-new FUSO fleet of reliable and durable trucks to support Shopee and its subsidiaries in delivering their services across the Philippines.

SFP has a wide network strategically located outlets and service centers across the Philippines, which offers high-quality trucks and buses and reliable service that cater to all business needs and customer requirements.
