2GO ramps up support for event logistics

2GO, the country’s leading enabler for the movement of people and goods,  said it is now best positioned to support tourism events of scale and varying needs with its end-to-end logistics and transport solutions.

In a statement, 2GO, which is part of the SM Group, said that it recently provided logistics support to the first IRONMAN triathlon event of the year by facilitating the transfer of large-ticket paraphernalia for the Davao leg. Bikes, race equipment, race bibs, singlets, merchandise and exhibition materials were shipped from Manila on 2GO vessels for the races and events on March 23-26, 2023.

“The IRONMAN events require us to work with a logistics and transport partner that offers integrated solutions, is reliable and capable of scaling with our needs,” said Princess Galura, President and General Manager of the Philippines’ official IRONMAN partner Sunrise Events. “We move a variety of equipment, for the mounting of the races and the surrounding events, as well as those needed by our athletes. We have worked with 2GO in previous IRONMAN events. We are engaging 2GO again, now that these events are back,” she added.

With 2GO’s range of assets, Galura said the group’s capability to operate in a wide network within the Philippines provides fast logistical solutions that are safe, secure, and dependable for any cargo transport by land, air, and sea.

2GO’s sea transport operation leverages on schedule reliability and voyage frequency with its eight passenger-cargo vessels and one freighter considered as the fastest in the country and have port priority berthing in 17 major ports nationwide, including Manila, Batangas, Cebu, Bacolod, Iloilo and Cagayan De Oro.

Beyond 2GO’s sea transport solutions, the group’s extensive land and air cargo capabilities enable the solutions provider to pick up and deliver door to door regardless of delivery requirements, making 2GO services suitable for any business demand.

2GO delivery services reaches 95 percent of Filipinos online serving 33,000 barangays across the country and continues to expand its coverage with more hubs and adding drop-off locations, especially in Mindanao.

With Sunrise Events’ continued trust, 2GO will continue to support the logistics and transport needs of the succeeding IRONMAN events to be held in Bohol, Camarines Sur, Dapitan, Puerto Princesa and Subic.
