Airspeed expands e-commerce operations in the Philippines with the addition of Dubai, UAE as a new service trade lane for UnboxMe.
UnboxMe is a cross-border delivery platform that is part of the emergent international shipping solutions offered by Airspeed. Launched in 2020 covering the USA to Philippines trade lane, the platform empowers online shoppers in the Philippines to shop on an e-commerce website abroad. It enables the registered users to have a local physical delivery address and allow them to make an online purchase, have their purchases delivered to their local address, and avoid expensive direct international shipping charges. The physical address is basically the UnboxMe local warehouse abroad wherein acceptance of the delivered shipments from online merchants, consolidation, and onward connection to the Philippines takes place.
With the addition of Dubai, online shoppers in the Philippines now have access to the shopping capital of the Middle East, famously known for its luxury brands, high-end fashion, and unbeatable prices in electronics and gadgets.
“We are happy to be the first cross-border logistics provider in the Philippines to pioneer Dubai as a trade lane for our cross-border e-commerce platform. Dubai has three annual shopping festivals that will entice every online shopper out there. The opening of UnboxMe in Dubai is proof that we are continuously working to grow our existing trade lanes and are exploring new ones as well,” said Rosemarie Rafael, Chairwoman and President of Airspeed Group of Companies.
