The Transparency Market Research, a global market research firm, forecasted the Philippines’ freight and logistics market to reach up to P3.26 trillion by 2023. True enough; the Filipino population is seeing this strong demand for storage facilities and warehouses especially for food, beverage, apparel, and other parcels. There was also a significant increase in the popularity of express delivery at a premium price. This movement in the country’s economy resulted from greater spending power brought by the robust economy.
With this foreseen growth in the industry, it is important that the key people in the sector remain updated with what’s new in the market. This is where the 7th edition of Transport and Logistics Philippines comes in.
