GrabTaxi kicks off courier business in the Philippines


Malaysia’s app-based ride sharing services company GrabTaxi officially kicked off its courier business in the Philippines covering key cities within Metro Manila.
Called GrabExpress, the delivery service can be accessed via the GrabTaxi app.
GrabExpress head Angeline Tham said that the company has conducted pilot testing of the beta version for the past few months and is confident that it can provide a hassle-free delivery service for personal or business needs.
“When GrabExpress was conceptualized, the first customers we had in mind were the small businesses that we could help. As a tech company, we want to enable e-commerce and broaden the reach of these startup businesses,” Tham said.

The new courier service allows one to send documents, parcels, gifts, among others. A person can even ask the rider to purchase items under P1000. After confirming the booking, the sender and the recipient can track the package’s status and whereabouts in real-time.
“If you’re a small business, you can partner with them to deliver your products to your customers like clothes, juices or phone accessories. It is an on-demand delivery service where the rider comes to you immediately upon booking confirmation, gets the package, and then delivers it right away to your recipient,” GrabExpress said in its statement.
The key cities that GrabExpress now covers in Metro Manila are Alabang, Makati, Mandaluyong, Manila, Marikina, Pasig, Pateros, Pasay, Paranaque, San Juan, Taguig and Quezon City districts 1, 3, 4 and 6.
GrabExpress is a new service provided for your convenience. Send documents, parcels, gifts, cookies and more for your personal or business needs.
It’s an on-demand service where the biker comes immediately upon confirmation of the booking and delivers right after to your recipient.
