Meralco’s eSakay partners with Mober for delivery services

Manila Electric Co.’s (Meralco) subsidiary eSakay, Inc., which provides end-to-end electric vehicle (EV) and charging infrastructure solutions for institutional customers and the riding public, has partnered with tech-logistics firm Mober to offer on-demand delivery services.

Under the partnership, Mober will utilize a fleet of electric cargo vans provided by eSakay.

“The cargo vans…are zero-emission commercial vehicles that combine the benefits of EVs with the design and functionality of reliable goods delivery units, able to transport parcels weighing up to 3,000 kilograms,” eSakay said in an e-mailed statement on Friday.

Established in 2016, Mober provides same-day delivery services to its clients. It aims to address the logistical challenges of small and medium-sized enterprises.

“Being an innovator in their field, this conveys a strong message and a clear example that a positive impact on climate change can be realized in our local logistics industry,” eSakay Chief Operating Officer Jonathan G. Aguirre said.

Meralco Chief Sustainability Officer and eSakay President and Chief Executive Officer Raymond B. Ravelo said: “We will continue to drive key initiatives in vehicle electrification and charging infrastructure enablement, as part of our pledge to protect and preserve our planet, and to power good lives for all.”

Mober Founder Dennis Ng believes that having a fleet of electric vans allows his company to remain efficient while reducing its carbon footprint.
