For many years interisland shipping in the Philippines was practically non-existent. In other words, of the 2,000 inhabited islands, very few people were able to get their hands on any deliveries at all due to the absence of nationwide trucking services. That all changed when interisland freight and shipping was introduced around 1982, which made it possible for businesses to do supply chain expansion. It was revolutionary, not only allowing the Philippine nationals who lived off the mainland more access to supplies, but it also made interisland trade a possibility. Today, Transportify is going to take it to the next level as we launch our nationwide interisland shipping services.
But, what is it about nationwide interisland shipping that is so valuable and how can your business benefit from this advancement? Read on if you’d like to find out more.
What Is The Importance of Interisland Shipping To Nationwide Trucking?
In the early days, having to ship something to one of the 2,000 inhabited islands off the Philippine mainland was incredibly expensive. This made it practically impossible for many of the people living on these islands as trade was already quite poor for them and thus they didn’t have much wealth. However, today, as interisland has become much more efficient, these islanders are now able to order online and receive items with greater efficiency using nationwide trucking services.
The Transportify App
Using the Transportify app which is free to download you can place orders for delivery, no matter how large or small, and the nearest driver to your location can collect them and forward them on from there. In addition to that, you can track your delivery in real-time, as can the recipient, remaining up to date with accurate ETA’s.
Using smart-routing software, the driver is updated as and when any traffic reports come in indicating where congestion might be building up and providing an alternative route. This makes the delivery process much more efficient, saving time and money, savings that we share with you and the customer.
But it gets better. Through the Transportify app, businesses can do supply chain expansion easier, because logistics companies like Transportify are open to delivering to more and more areas in the Philippines. So, how does it work?

You can offer shorter delivery times: Before, if someone ordered a product on your website from a remote location, you will likely have notified them that there would be a significant wait while you received other orders to justify such a delivery. With Transportify you no longer need to worry about this.
You can send your goods out for delivery immediately and thus offer shorter delivery times for your customers. Not only will this encourage more people to place orders with you, but it will bolster trust and brand loyalty in return, particularly when those deliveries make it in excellent condition.

This means that for everyone involved there is money to be saved. Additionally, these savings can contribute towards a greater profit margin and expand your business even further.
Help drive the Philippines forward: Being able to offer your products nationwide and to every inhabited island is a massive benefit. This will allow you to offer your amazing goods and services to people who would have otherwise missed out on the opportunity. This in turn brings the Philippines together, drives the country forward, and creates more opportunity and equality for all.
Easy integration: If you are quite set in your ways and you are used to the current system that your business uses for handling your current deliveries then the thought of switching things up can be daunting. Rest assured that switching to Transportify and allowing us to handle all of your logistical requirements is effortless.
