How To Get Your Parcels And Products Shipped And Delivered With Transportify
Transportify is an app-based logistics company that provides all sorts of on-demand freight and shipping solutions both for businesses and consumers. It has the same concept as Grab Express and Lalamove, but with solutions for larger scale logistical needs.
It’s primarily a mobile app, although there is also a web version. Either one will allow you to book and manage on-demand deliveries of your goods, merchandise, inventory, and even cargo.
However, one thing to note is that Transportify currently caters to the Metro Manila area only.
How it’s different from Grab Express and Lalamove
Transportify is more business-centric compared to other similar services. Their goal is to provide a full-fledged courier service for businesses, much like how JT Express is to Lazada.
For businesses who are looking for a local logistics partner, Transportify could offer a solution that cuts costs and boosts efficiency.

Their different types of logistics solutions
It’s worth noting that Transportify has bigger fleets of vehicles that you can choose from for heavier and bigger delivery needs. You aren’t just limited to a motorbike or an SUV, there are actually vans and even trucks that you can choose from on the platform.
Here are the types of vehicles you can book through this app:
Ideal for small deliveries such as food, groceries, small furniture, small appliances, electronics, perishable goods, etc. This is also the cheapest option on the platform because these vehicles are only suitable for the delivery of small items.
L300 or van
Made for transporting bigger cargo that economy vehicles can’t handle. The fleet of vehicles that belongs to this category is the following: Mitsubishi L300, Toyota Hiace, Hyundai H-100, and Nissan Urvan.
This is suitable for deliveries of bigger goods such as medium-sized furniture, boxes of perishable goods, multiple sacks of rice, and etc.
This courier option offers 4-wheeler or 6-wheeler closed van trucks more suitable for large deliveries like sofas, bed frames, big cabinets, or a huge batch of items you want to move at the same time.
Suitable for moving needs and transporting construction materials and agricultural products.
More suited for transporting chilled and frozen goods, vegetables, poultry, and the likes that require freezing temperatures to maintain their freshness. \

A reefer truck must be booked 24 hours in advance. No on-demand booking is allowed for this type of courier.
Mini dump truck
This is made for hauling construction logistics needs such as the transport of sand, gravel, and other construction materials.
This type of truck requires a 6-hour lead time.

Requires advanced booking of at least 12 hours.
Long pickup truck
A transport vehicle suitable for huge cargo, it can accommodate wholesale products, sacks of rice, bags of cement, textile, clothing, and footwear.

Cash on delivery (COD) and return service
Transportify provides cash on delivery (COD) and returns services, but these programs are only offered to their Business Program clients or business partners.
In the Philippines, cash is still king, thus Filipinos still prefer paying in cash even for their online shopping. If you run a business and you want to implement this type of payment method, you can partner with Transportify for their COD service. Their driver will collect the cash from your customers upon the delivery of your product, then they will deposit the cash to your account through the nearest remittance center.
With the Transportify COD service, the driver will collect cash or check payment from each customer upon delivery of the order and deposit it to the nearest remittance center. The amount will then be transferred to the client’s account.
On the other hand, Transportify can also help you with your return orders through their Proof of Delivery (POD) program. Their driver will pick up the item from your customer, their business partners only need to provide the driver their delivery receipt prior to the pick-up.
