Global logistics giant C.H. Robinson has announced the opening of its first office in the Philippines, strategically expanding its presence in the burgeoning Southeast Asian market. This move underscores C.H. Robinson’s commitment to providing customized and high-quality logistics solutions in key global markets.

The Philippines, one of Southeast Asia’s most dynamic economies, boasts a projected economic growth of 6% for 2024. This growth fuels a surge in demand for freight and logistics services, driven by increased international trade and export activities. The Philippines’ logistics sector itself contributes significantly to the country’s GDP, accounting for 4-6 per cent and is projected to reach a market size of 1.16 trillion pesos (US$20.5 billion) by 2027.

“There is a growing need for local logistics expertise with global capabilities as companies navigate today’s complex logistics landscape,” said Mike Short, president of global forwarding at C.H. Robinson. “While we have had a presence in the Philippines for decades, this new office is one of the ways we continue to strengthen our global footprint and local knowledge, helping our customers accelerate in Southeast Asia and beyond.”

The Philippines’ strategic location in Southeast Asia facilitates seamless connections with its key trading partners, including the United States, Singapore, South Korea, Germany, and China (including Hong Kong SAR). C.H. Robinson’s existing offices and expertise in these regions, coupled with their extensive North American trucking network, provide clients with end-to-end global connectivity and solutions across various modes and trade lanes.

“We see tremendous growth opportunities within the Filipino economy, particularly with the logistics and transportation sector set for accelerated growth,” said Stephen Ly, vice president, Southeast Asia, C.H. Robinson. “Our new office is a strategic response to growing market demand, and we are committed to driving a new era of supply chain processes to transform the logistics trade in the Philippines. This expansion will enable us to better serve our existing customers in the Philippines and attract new customers looking for a company with established local roots backed by global capabilities. We look forward to providing our customers with more freight options, greater visibility of movement and deeper expert insights.”

This expansion allows C.H. Robinson to better serve existing clients in the Philippines while attracting new ones seeking a company with deep local roots and global capabilities. Clients can expect access to a wider range of freight options, enhanced shipment visibility, and expert industry insights.

C.H. Robinson’s multimodal transportation management system and specialized expertise will specifically cater to major Philippine manufacturing industries, with a focus on automotive and high-tech sectors like semiconductors and integrated circuits.
