    The new facility — inaugurated last September — will soon house a pump and tank service constructed by PSPC, which will be the car company’s fuel requirement supplier for the next three years.

    With an annual capacity of 160,000 units, the BVC has a stockyard that can hold 4,500 samples at the same time. It is also designed to streamline the receiving of units from international vessels as the facility was put up just six kilometers away from the Port of Batangas. The creation of such will boost the quality and timely delivery of units to more than 70 Toyota dealers nationwide.

    PSPC Vice President and General Manager for Mobility Randy Del Valle said that the two firms “play a huge role in driving sustainability in the way they operate. “TMP included sustainability features in the Batangas Vehicle Center, and Shell shares this commitment to reduce carbon footprint by integrating sustainability features in our retail network,” he explained.

    “We’re also shifting our gas stations to mobility stations. We don’t call ourselves a gas station anymore, and we’ll be serving the mobility needs of the Philippines,” del Valle added.

    Further, PSPC Country Business Manager for Fleet Solutions Christopher Alli said, “We celebrate this partnership between two resilient and responsible brands committed towards customer service, quality products, and care for the environment.”

    He also shared that Toyota’s business paradigm is shifting globally from an automotive manufacturing company to a mobility company. “We aim of bringing the joy and the freedom of movement to all.”
