Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) turned over NMR85H aluminum van trucks to SPX Philippines Inc. (Shopee Xpress). These new delivery fleet additions will bolster the integrated logistics service of Shopee, the country’s leading and most popular e-commerce platform.
“On behalf of Isuzu Philippines Corporation, thank you to Shopee Xpress Philippines for trusting us to become their new, responsible partner. With the NMR’s tried and tested DNA, we are confident that they will be able to achieve their goal of safe and seamless deliveries in the fastest time possible,” said IPC executive vice president Shojiro Sakoda.
Shopee Xpress serves as the standard delivery option for the online marketplace. It aims to efficiently ship items to not just ensure timely distribution but also faster payout among sellers. “From here on, Isuzu is looking forward to contributing to a more enjoyable e-commerce experience to Shopee sellers and customers through the NMR’s proven reliability and versatility on the road,” adds IPC sales division head Joseph Bautista. The official ceremony was also attended by Isuzu Automotive Dealership, Inc. (IADI) chief operating officer Alex Paguio, who was responsible for sealing the partnership.
The Isuzu NMR85H truck is powered by a 4JJ1-TCC Euro IV diesel engine having a maximum power of 124PS and maximum torque of 354Nm. It has a 14-feet rear body.
