Manila, Philippines, March 18, 2022 — 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, fueled its partnership with Producers Connection Logistics, Inc. (PCL) by turning over 7 units of FUSO FJ 2528R last March 18, 2022 at Paco, Manila.
Established in 2003, PCL is focused on the growing demand for logistics services to keep business stable and steadfast. Through strategic plans offering reliable outsourcing services, PCL has expanded its Contract Warehousing and Logistics to allow its client to reduce costs. This includes managing assets and labor, enhancing flexibility, and reducing investments in assets. Through this partnership, SFP aims to provide PCL and its network improved operational efficiency.
The FUSO FJ 2528R’s durability and performance make it ideal for the distribution of products across the country. Powered by a reliable engine, the FJ is designed for quicker and smoother operation, better acceleration, and fuel economy.
During the turnover, SFP also conducted product and driver’s training such as Vehicle Inspection, Basic Troubleshooting, and Safety Driving Tips to the PCL operations team. This ensures proper handling of the FJ 2528R.
“Our operation is continuously evolving to adapt to the needs of our customers. We are now entering this new phase of our operation as we run our own fleet of trucks. This move allows us to be more flexible and cater to the demand of our business partners. This will also create an opportunity for our clients to expand their business and increase their reach as well. Optimizing our operation is our objective and we are looking forward to expanding further,” says PCL management.
PCL is a proud 100% Filipino-owned Corporation and has developed capabilities through the years. SFP is proud to turnover a brand-new FUSO fleet of reliable and high-quality trucks to support PCL and its partners in delivering their services in major regions.
