eSakay x Mober

The Filipino automotive landscape is experiencing a positive transition as many of the players in the automotive industry are slowly increasing their eco-friendly offerings. To help the Philippines adjust to a cleaner means of mobility, eSakay, Inc. has partnered with Mober.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What is eSakay?

    eSakay is the green mobility arm and a subsidiary of the Manila Electric Co. (Meralco).
  • What is Mober?

    Mober is a tech-logistics firm in the Philippines.
  • How do the two companies plan to offer sustainable delivery services?

    Mober will start using a fleed of EV cars from eSakay to help reduce the carbon footprint caused by the increased demand for delivery services.
  • The former is a subsidiary of the Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) while the latter is a Makati-based tech-logistics firm in the Philippines. Together, both companies aim to provide sustainable delivery services in the Philippines and offer an eco-friendly alternative to the usual motorcycle-driven services.

    Mober, which provides same-day delivery services to its clients, will start utilizing a fleet of electric cargo vans provided by eSakay, an end-to-end green mobility solutions provider and enabler.

    “We want to set an example in the Philippine logistics industry and do our part in reducing our carbon emissions. Our primary goal has always been to provide efficient service. Having a fleet of electric vans means that we can continue to be efficient, while reducing our carbon footprint,” said Mober Founder Dennis Ng.

    Mober has been a trailblazer in the logistics industry since 2016. The company was originally set up as an on-demand delivery app, designed to help solve the logistics challenges of small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Today, they’ve grown to offer a wider assortment of transport services, from “lipat bahay” to pet shuttles.

    On the other hand, eSakay provides end-to-end EV and charging infrastructure solutions for institutional customers and the riding public. Meralco’s green mobility arm is committed to enabling and supporting the country’s transition towards a cleaner and a more sustainable transport system.

    “We are delighted to have Mober as our strategic partner in our continuing drive to propagate electric vehicles in the country. 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,” said eSakay COO Jonathan G. Aguirre.

    Meralco Chief Sustainability Officer and eSakay President and CEO Raymond B. Ravelo added, “eSakay’s mission of enabling more and more Filipinos to enjoy the benefits of green mobility is indeed in line with Meralco’s sustainability agenda. Together with partners such as Mober, 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.”

    Together, the companies are creating a greener solution for our post-pandemic needs. While delivery services are the best way to make sure we stay at home and safe from the virus, we need to be more aware of how they grow our carbon footprint.

    With the new electric cargo vans from eSakay and Mober, business owners (and their customers) can enjoy emission-free deliveries.
