One of the country’s leading logistics companies, YTO Express Philippines, recently announced the acquisition of 300 units of trucks from Foton Motor Philippines Inc. (FMPI). The move is part of the YTO Express’ efforts to realize a sizable boost in mobility and logistics for the benefit of both the consumer and the national economy. With its fleet now strengthened by Foton, the company expects to enable a substantially faster and more efficient delivery of goods and services to Filipino consumers.

YTO Express Philippines is acquiring a fleet of 300 units composed of the Tornado M4.2C and the M2.6C F-van.

FMPI is truly honored with the acquisition: ”For over a decade, we have been committed to strengthening national mobility by providing dependable commercial vehicles for multiple industries—in public transportation, agriculture, infrastructure—and now we are propelling e-commerce and delivery services,” said FMPI President Erroll E. Dueñas.

Embodying versatility combined with proven dependability, the Tornado trucks have been empowering businesses from big corporations to small and medium enterprises.
