Delivery Dilemma? Here Are Top Five Couriers that Are Perfect for Your Business
Online selling has always been a thing, but for two years now, we witnessed how the business boomed.
If you are an aspiring online seller, then all you have to worry about are your products,
because we’ve done our research on the five best and most popular couriers
you can consider to safely deliver your goods to your buyers!
Don’t be surprised that LBC tops the list!
Operating since the 1940s, it is the largest courier company spanning not only years but overseas distance.
In the Philippines alone, it has 1, 252 branches, making it very easy to find one near you.
General consensus agrees that LBC delivers fast, though it is more expensive than other couriers.
To give you an estimate, a light, intra province package costs around PHP 80.00, while a 20 kg (for bulk orders or heavy items) ranges from PHP 1,000.00 - 2,000.00, across Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
Best to use their shipping fee calculator to get an exact quotation, and a comprehensive list of services, at https://www.lbcexpress.com/.
If your goods are urgent medicines or perishable desserts, time to install the Grab app!
People say GrabExpress has the most developed same-day delivery system because it has real-time tracking, open communication with the rider,
insurance for parcel protection, COD and credit card mode of payments, promos, and rewards!
However, since it is an app, it is dependent on internet connection and is still prone to bugs. Fees start at PHP 49.00, so best explore your grab app to get more accurate pricing depending on weight and distance.
If you are looking for something simple, affordable, domestic, and efficient, ABest is
here to the rescue!
Though they do not have extended perks such as memberships or benefits like LBC’s SoShop!, their loyal clients are top tier banks and companies—BDO and Motortrade to name a few.
ABest was founded in 1990, and since then, they have focused on what they do best, door-to-door delivery with comparatively low rates from PHP 90.00 - 200.00.

JRS Express is another gem with a long experience of 60 years and the ability to innovate along with modern times!
Data attest that they now have 440 branches and can serve other selected countries.
They have cashless payments, SMS tracking, and freight forwarding.
JRS is open 24/7, even holidays, which is good for your business as you can send your goods anytime without piling up.
One pounder starts from PHP 130.00, and 10 kilos are around PHP 900.00 if you are delivering to further scopes. Like LBC, they have a rate calculator at https://www.jrs-express.com/.
Another reliable one is 2Go Express.
Big retail entities such as SM groups, FedEx, and Savemore have 2Go as their official partner courier!
700 branches boast air and sea freights, where you can track your package locally and internationally.
They also have same-day delivery, but on limited schedules unlike GrabExpress.
If SM can trust 2Go with their stocks, so can individual sellers.
Cheapest intracity rate is PHP 115.00, while large items reach PHP 220.00 to serviceable areas. Check out https://express.2go.com.ph/ for more details.
One thing us Filipinos should be proud about is our being “madiskarte.”
We are a resilient lot, and when it comes to supporting our families, not even a nationwide lockdown can stop us!
