Philippine courier LBC opens warehouse in Dubai
LBC Express has inaugurated its new 11,700 square foot warehouse in Al Quoz Industrial Area 1 near Al Khail Mall and Grand Mall.
The new warehouse will also host the head office and call center of LBC UAE, the expanded local branch of the Philippine courier and cargo brand.
LBC UAE opened in 2008 with one branch in Karama, Dubai, and has since added two more branches in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah in response to substantial growth in volume in the last few years.
LBC UAE now has more than 200 store-agents and -partners and is still growing, the company said during the launch of the new warehouse.
Globally, LBC Express has a network of 6,400 locations, partners and agents spread over 30 countries in Asia-Pacific, North America, the Middle East and Europe.
Founded in 1945 as a brokerage and air cargo agent, LBC Express pioneered time-sensitive cargo delivery and 24-hour door-to-door delivery in the Philippines.
"Moving to a bigger and better warehouse allows us to keep our promise [of care for packages] as we continuously enhance our internal procedures through proper handling of these packages of our 'kababayans' (compatriots),” said LBC VP for ME Mark Octavios Cesar Agalo-os.
