LBC Express launches new cargo solutions to Philippines

UAE, August 23, 2017

LBC Express, a leading courier and cargo solutions provider in the Philippines, has launched a new service that offers end-to-end solution for shipment of valuables with care and professionalism.

Filipinos in the UAE will find these cargo forwarding solutions, named LBC Cares, helpful and convenient as they fill in a void to bridge over 2 million “kabayans” in the Middle East to their families back home, said a statement.

LBC is the first Filipino cargo company to provide a service that seeks to ease the process of securing sensitive requirements and paperwork for shipment of human remains, live animals, as well as fragile appliances and furniture, it added.

Mark Agalo-os, vice president for the Middle East, LBC, said: “LBC Cares guarantees comfort and security for our “kabayans” and their families back home by providing hassle-free transport of their valuables, no matter how massive or delicate these are.”

“LBC has cemented its reputation as the Filipinos’ most trusted forwarder. With LBC Cares, we provide our overseas “kabayans” with a more personalized, friendly and professional approach with the goal of providing convenience as we ensure their most important shipments will reach the Philippine safely,” he said.

“LBC is just a call away and we will be your helpful friend who will assist you every step of the way,” he added.

All three services will first be offered in the UAE and eventually the rest of the Gulf region, said a statement.

Through the Human Remains Repatriation service, LBC will stand with our “kabayans” and their families in difficult times such as a loss of loved one as they assist the family of the deceased in securing requirements from local documentation to airline bookings, airport to airport clearances down to delivery to preferred consignee in the Philippines.

With LBC Cares, the family can now take comfort that LBC will ensure transport of their loved one’s remains with utmost care.

LBC is also aware that a number of “kabayans” in UAE have pets under their care. With LBC Cares’ Live Animal Shipment, transporting their pets home should not be an issue as LBC assists in the requirements and airline booking and clearances to ensure a hassle-free travel for their beloved pets to the Philippines.

Special Handling service, on the other hand, is LBC’s way of ensuring that their customers’ precious belongings such as furniture and appliances are shipped to the Philippines securely and with extra care. Under this service, LBC offers customized crating services to provide utmost security upon shipment of the items.

LBC Cares was launched during a recent oath-taking ceremony of officers of the Middle East and African Network of Filipinos Diaspora (MEANFID) at Metropolitan Hotel in Dubai.

MEANFID expressed support to LBC’s newest service innovation for our “kabayans” with the support of the Philippine government through the guidance of the Philippine Embassy and Philippine Consulate.

Agalo-os said: “Just like the goal of MEANFID, our commitment is to serve our “kabayans” the best way we can.”

“We share the passion to assist them and provide them with all conveniences so that they can work productively and live comfortably despite the distance that separates them from their families back home,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
