Resolute in its determination to advance and intensify its presence, Foton Philippines Inc. (FMPI) concludes 2021 with strengthened fleet partnerships across multiple industries. Covering fleet clients ranging from start-up businesses, small to medium enterprises (SMEs), all the way to big, multinational companies, the brand continues to attract more patronage all over the country.
Acclaimed as a one-stop-shop commercial vehicle brand, Foton presents a wide array of commercial vehicles ranging from vans to midi trucks to light-duty, medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks. What’s making the brand remarkable is its competitive performance matched with long-lasting durability that all comes at an unbeatable price value.
E-commerce delivery services
As the public widely embraces online business platforms, e-commerce delivery services have become one of the most in-demand industries in 2021. With Foton’s efficiency in transporting deliverables swift and fast, the pioneering brand, J&T Express, and the rapidly rising, GoGo Xpress, choose to trust Foton’s light-duty trucks, the Tornado Series.
To date, more than 500 units were turned over to J&T Express, greatly strengthening its nationwide operations and meeting–and surpassing–the logistics company’s strict mobility requirements.
Trucking and hauling industry
Foton is one of the most in-demand brands in the trucking and hauling Industries. It offers a complete selection of dump trucks with dump box capacity stretching from 4CBM up to a gigantic 30CBM. Moreover, the brand has a series of tractor heads under the EST series. Two of its loyal fleet partners in the industry are the Asian Ventures General Services, and the Cebu-based Arrow Go Logistics.
Charity and welfare
Moving for charity and the greater good of the Filipino, the Philippine Red Cross trusts Foton in delivering essential goods to indigents in times of disasters and conflicts. This 2021, the humanitarian organization acquired a fleet of Tornado Food Trucks equipped with kitchen equipment and tools, capable of preparing meals on site.
Public service in emergency response
Preferred by local government units (LGUs), Foton is also lined-up with emergency responding units. This 2021, units of TransVan HR Ambulance were turned over to the provincial government of Palawan. Ready for every emergency, the unit is equipped with medical tools and equipment that are vital in life-threatening scenarios.
Supporting the national government’s campaign in innovating public transportation, Foton Philippines completed the modernized jeepney line-up from class 1 to 3. The brand now offers four options for the modernized jeepney, namely the F-Jeepney F11, F-Jeepney F24, F-jeepney F29 and F-Jeepney Class 3.
In 2021, Foton even expanded its F-jeepney fleet and local government partners, acquiring more routes in Sta. Rosa Laguna, San Pedro Laguna, Gerona Tarlac, and Cebu Mandaue.
Cold-chain and pharmaceutical deliveries
With the emergence of transporting medical products such as vaccines and pharmaceutical essentials, the Pharmaserv Express trusts Foton Tornado Refrigerated Vans in transporting products that are highly sensitive to temperature. Tapped with the best technologies including the Thermo King refrigeration system, a Tornado M4.2C Ref-Van can provide cold storage as low as -20 degrees Celsius.
Feeds for livestock
The famous Pigrolac Premium Hog Feeds reaches new markets with Foton as it launches its farm-penetration Mobile Action Team. Accompanied by its new fleet of Gratour MT Wing Vans, Pigrolac rolls in the last quarter of 2021 with fortified mobility.
Last but not least, Foton Philippines also invested in empowering after-sales performance and service in 2021, vending new programs including year-round discounts for spare parts, extended engine warranties, and more extensive on-site services.
