FUSO Philippines joins Commercial Vehicle Show in the Culinary Capital of the Philippines

Clark, Pampanga, March 31, 2022 — As we continue the drive for PUV Modernization, Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation (SFP), the general distributor of FUSO and one of the Philippines’ primary commercial vehicle distributors of brand-new trucks and buses participated once again at the Clark Commercial Vehicle Show held last March 31 to April 1, 2022, at Fontana Leisure Parks & Casino, Clark, Pampanga with the theme, “Transport Cooperatives Transformation towards the New Normal”.

Considered as the Philippines’ Culinary Capital, Pampanga offers more than just a great introduction to Filipino food. Just a couple of hours away from Manila, Pampanga is also classified as a first-class and highly urbanized city surrounded with industries from automotive and agricultural businesses to forestry. SFP believes that the introduction of the FUSO modern PUVs to the city will help transport cooperatives in showcasing the efficient, safe, and accessible modern transportation system.

“This is a very timely event, given all the issues that our public transport system is facing at the moment – from the shift to the PUV Modernization Program, the continuation of the challenges of this pandemic, and skyrocketing price of fuel all over, I am very hopeful that this congress will help us all figure out what our next steps should be moving forward in order to best support the public transport sector through these issues. To that end, we have filed the Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program Act and the Transportation Cooperatives Development Loan Fund Act to enable our transport cooperatives to effectively modernize.” says Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri.

This program of the national government is a comprehensive system reform that can entirely change the Public Land Transportation system. As the country works toward economic recovery, the Clark Commercial Vehicle Show is a good venue to discuss the issues and concerns of transport cooperatives that support the shift to PUV modernization.

Part of the event program is a presentation of the brand’s modern PUV. SFP showcased the powerful performance, reliability, and durability of both FUSO Canter Commute (Class II) and FUSO Canter Express (Class III).

Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation Assistant Manager for Product Planning, Ms. Nolyn Mae de Guzman presented the FUSO Class II and Class III Modern PUVs from specifications, interior and exterior body, accessories and vehicle certification.

Moving forward, SFP is committed to tie-up with more transport cooperatives in support of the Philippines’ PUVMP. SFP believes that FUSO products can meet the goal of a more sustainable public transportation system for the country.

Senator Miguel Zubiri outlined the legislative plans for the transport cooperative emphasizing modernization loan applications. “Alam ko pong may sarili tayong challenges sa ating transport sector, at handa po akong tumulong maghanap ng solusyon para maayos nating maisagawa and PUV modernization dito.” Zubiri stated. Addressing transport cooperatives concerns, Zubiri further discussed PUV modernization efforts to finally commence the program.

Through the event, the GenSan Commercial Vehicle Show addressed the transport cooperatives concerns and queries about the government’s PUV modernization program.

FUSO Philippines showcased the brand’s latest modern PUV to the Queen City of the South

Filed under: Press Release — Tags: , , , — Marketing FUSO @ 12:00 pm

Cebu City, July 30, 2021 – Despite the occurring pandemic, the Cebu Commercial Vehicle Show in partnership with the National Federation of Transport Cooperative successfully held the 1st Transport Cooperative Visayas Congress last July 30, Friday at the Waterfront Hotel, Cebu City, Philippines. The event’s objective is to discuss the implementation of the Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program (PUVMP).

PUVMP envisions a restructured, modern, well-managed, and environmentally sustainable transport sector where drivers and operators have stable, sufficient, and dignified livelihoods while commuters get to their destinations quickly, safely, and comfortably.

Considering the objective of the event, Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation (SFP) believes that this is a good venue to present the truck line-up, most especially the Public Utility Vehicles (PUV) models purposely built for transportation.

Hailed as the “Queen City of the South”, Cebu City has great possibilities in terms of economic, business, and infrastructure. As transportation is known to be an important sector both private and public, the transport congress is timely especially in the Visayas region.

Together in one venue, transport cooperatives have welcomed representatives from different transportation sectors, government leaders, and automotive companies including the Guests of Honor, Spokesperson of the Office of the President – Hon. Harry Roque, Senators of the Senate of the Philippines – Hon. Miguel Zubiri and Hon. Sherwin Gatchalian, NFTC National Director – Mr. Vicente Artillero, NFTC National Chairman – Mr. Armando Delos Reyes, Cebu City Mayor – Hon. Edgardo Labella, and Cebu Province Governor – Hon. Gwendolyn Garcia.

Hon. Zubiri, discussed the sector’s modernization efforts and challenges amidst the global pandemic. “The transport sector is facing a real paradigm change, in terms of PUV modernization,” he stated. “I made sure that our transport cooperatives were included in the loan and subsidy programs provided by the DOTr in the wake of the pandemic” he added mentioning further support for the sector through this transition.

Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation was among the commercial vehicle brands that participated in the event rolling out their version of modern PUV showcasing the reliability and strong performance of FUSO Canter Express (Class III) in the Queen City of the South. As SFP exhibits the brand’s 25-Seater Modern PUV, it also guaranteed driver and passenger comfort, equipped with a front dashcam, rear camera, and cabin CCTV cameras for safety and driver-friendly for the Cebuano’s.

The FUSO Canter Commute (Class II) on the other hand, has side-facing seats (like traditional jeepneys) that can accommodate 20 passengers and 10 more standing. Designed and crafted to provide the transportation needs of the public, ensuring safety and convenience.

For a more comprehensive and detailed discourse regarding the implementation of the PUV Modernization Program, part of the congress is an open forum to discuss the issues and concerns on Transport Cooperative Operations. Joining the forum – Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), Cooperative Development Authority (CDA), and Office of Transportation Cooperatives (OTC) as panel resources to answer all their queries. It is also to understand the transformation of modern transportation as the Filipino’s drive towards the “new normal”.

Amidst the occurring quarantine classification on both Metro Manila and nearby provinces, Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation, together with its dealers, will remain committed to providing campaigns, programs, and necessary services that are all in line with the SFP mission to contribute to the drive for development and betterment of living in the Philippines.
