On-demand logistics solutions provider BRAD has unveiled plans to go nationwide this year to support the growth of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), mainly homegrown businesses.
BRAD spent the first quarter of the year covering Metro Manila and nearby provinces. By the second quarter, it plans to expand to the rest of Luzon and then to Visayas and Mindanao in the second half of 2022.
Currently, the company has more than 30 merchants in its portfolio and over 150 riders based in different localities. It expects to grow the number significantly with its ongoing expansion.
“What we want to highlight for BRAD is convenience. We’re focusing our efforts on expanding the channels we have right now to serve the SMEs, especially homegrown businesses and communities, given the limited options for on-demand logistics solutions in the provinces,” said Richie Santos, BRAD General Manager.
BRAD provides a wide range of logistical services tailored to fit the needs of businesses from various industries such as health and wellness, food and beverage, e-commerce, and telecommunications. It also looks into the education, medical, pharmaceutical, and hospitality sectors.
Although it mostly caters to large corporate clients, BRAD also hopes to become a trusted partner of the SME market. It connects businesses to consumers by delivering essential items such as medicine, groceries, personal care items, appliances, gadgets, household care, and home essentials.
BRAD was established amid high demand for delivery services during the pandemic. It is looking to tap into more opportunities in the e-commerce space as it hopes to become the nation’s most advanced, efficient, and impactful tech-enabled provider of end-to-end supply chain technology solutions.
BRAD is a shared services provider under the Asticom Group of Companies, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Globe Group.
It shares Globe’s support for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly UN SDG No. 9, highlighting the roles of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development. It is committed to upholding the UN Global Compact principles and contributing to 10 UN SDGs.
