Local last mile and consumer delivery firm Black Arrow Express recently announced that they have increased shipment volume capacity by investing in a bigger facility located at West Service Road, Parañaque City.
The move is aimed at catering to the increasing shipment volume from eCommerce orders. The space, referred to as the Black Arrow Express West Service Road Corporate HQ (BAE WSR Corporate HQ), is a 3-storey building with a total enclosed area space of 18,200 square meters and 7,500 square meters of open area for parking. It is five times their existing facility, and was designed and built specifically for express and eCommerce.
The building’s first floor houses sorting and dispatching, the second floor is intended for warehousing, while the third floor is for executive offices and employee wellness.
Allan Brizuela, President of Black Arrow Express expressed his excitement. “This move is just the first step towards bigger things planned for Black Arrow Express. By 2019, we aim to house the first fully automated cross-sorter, which will improve operations even further,” he shared.
The BAE WSR Corporate HQ aims to address the growing volume of deliveries, while improving operational efficiencies, which includes faster sorting and deliveries for products housed within the warehouse. The facility also has direct ramp access to the second floor for faster loading of packages and parcels in trucks and for riders. The proximity to the airport and accessibility to major highways will also vastly improve transit to provinces.
“We are fully committed to improving the lives of Filipinos by providing a reliable and cost-effective service. With our new facility, we will be looking into increasing our customer support and satisfaction,” Allan concluded.
Unlike other logistics companies that focus their services within Metro Manila, Black Arrow Express caters to numerous areas all over the country. The company aims to provide a more convenient way for all Filipinos to send and receive packages nationwide.
Black Arrow Express is a member of the AAI Group which offers tech integrated end-to-end logistics solutions tailored to service the eCommerce industry.
