Black Arrow Express is moving to a bigger warehouse facility located at West Service Road, Parañaque, Metro Manila, Philippines. This enables the company to cater to the increasing shipment volume from eCommerce orders.
Referred to as the Black Arrow Express West Service Road Corporate HQ (BAE WSR Corporate HQ), the space is a three-storey building with a total enclosed area space of 18,200 square meters and 7,500 square meters of open area for parking. It is five times the company’s existing facility and was designed and built specifically for express and eCommerce.
The first floor houses sorting and dispatching. The second floor is for warehousing, while the third floor is for executive offices and employee wellness.
The BAE WSR Corporate HQ aims to address the growing volume of deliveries while improving operational efficiencies. These include faster sorting and deliveries for products housed within the warehouse.
Also, the facility has direct ramp access to the second floor for faster loading of packages and parcels in trucks and for riders. The proximity to the airport and accessibility to major highways will also vastly improve transit to provinces.
“This move is just the first step towards bigger things planned for Black Arrow Express,” Black Arrow Express president Allan Brizuela stated. “By 2019, we aim to house the first fully automated cross-sorter, which will improve operations even further.”
Unlike other logistics companies that focus their services within Metro Manila, Black Arrow Express caters to numerous areas all over the country. The company aims to provide a more convenient way for all Filipinos to send and receive packages nationwide.
“We are fully committed to improving the lives of Filipinos by providing a reliable and cost-effective service,” Brizuela said. “With our new facility, we will be looking into increasing our customer support and satisfaction.”
Founded in 2016, Black Arrow Express is a last mile and consumer delivery firm under total logistics provider AAI. Currently available in the Philippines, the company is targeting to expand its courier services to other Southeast Asian economies by 2019.
