At a time when cargo deliveries are booming more than ever, nothing says convenience like a company that lets you send and receive packages anytime you need to. This is true for Victory Liner, whose cargo padala in Cubao has recently been upgraded to operate 24/7. Thus, making its services more accessible for businesses and other customers at all hours of the day.
Victory Liner’s delivery services operate through Drop & Go, now one of the top couriers in the Philippines. With its wide coverage in Central Luzon, Northern Luzon, Mega Manila, Bicol, and even Visayas, anyone who avails of their services can do so as fast as 48 hours. And with its Cubao branch working round the clock, you can expect an even more efficient way to ship your goods, products, and other essentials!
24/7 cargo padala in Cubao for everyone
Previously open from only 6am to 10pm daily, Victory Liner Cubao branch is now the first 24/7 outlet of Drop & Go. “Our customers actually suggested this in Cubao before,” Victory Liner Operations Manager Aleks Briones shared with TripZilla in an interview. “When we saw that there was a clamour for it, we immediately executed.”
When choosing which outlet would be made to operate day and night, it was a rather easy choice for the company to decide on Quezon City’s commercial heart. “Cubao is strategically located in the middle of the metro, [so] a lot of customers send and receive items here. I think this is why it is our number one hub,” he added.
According to Briones, these customers include corporate companies that operate until late hours of the evening, as well as small businesses in the food and beverage sector that require trading goods in wet markets early in the morning. There are also individuals who simply need to send or retrieve personal packages outside their typical school or work hours.
Upgrading services for the long-term
For the above reasons, Victory Liner has also levelled up their safety features. “Although we have fewer administrative staff, our security is doubled at night. Our customers still get excellent service though despite this,” Briones further said. Drop & Go clients can then seamlessly send packages no matter what time they opt to visit the Cubao branch. As of publication, you can send cargo to the following Drop & Go destinations.
While Drop & Go Cubao’s new operating hours open doors to more clients, Victory Liner is working on how it could also benefit those who are personally unable to visit the branch for various reasons. In particular, the customers of its door-to-door delivery service, DGMan, which functions in partnership with the on-demand delivery app, JoyRide.
According to Briones, they are currently assessing the service’s demands beyond a certain time in the evening. If there happens to be enough demand, it’s likely that those customers may also soon enjoy home pickup and delivery of their cargo, at the same taking advantage of the app’s affordable courier service.
Sending or receiving packages in Cubao
Businesses or individuals who wish to avail of Drop & Go’s cargo padala in Cubao can visit the Victory Liner terminal in Quezon City. You can find it along EDSA in Barangay Immaculate Concepcion, just north of the Araneta Center-Cubao MRT Station. To send cargo in Cubao, follow these steps:
- Pack your package properly. Depending on the contents, you can avail of Drop & Go’s fit-all-you-can boxes and envelopes for better security.
- Label the package with the recipient’s name, address, and contact number. It should also include the sender’s name and address.
- Visit Drop & Go’s branch at the above-mentioned address and have your cargo weighed by the staff. Alternatively, book online via the Drop & Go website and avail of DGMan via JoyRide to have it picked up.
- Fill out the freight form and pay the necessary freight fees at the available counter. The fees depend on the weight and declared value of the cargo. Cashless payment options, including the use of Victory Liner’s Premiere Card, are also available.
- Wait for the SMS updates by Drop & Go. Otherwise, head to Victory Liner’s online pages to know the status of the delivery.
To retrieve cargo, simply drop by the Drop & Go outlet at the soonest possible time to avoid penalties. This especially applies to cargo containing fresh goods or produce. Not to mention essential items, such as medical supplies and other food items. For prohibited cargo, you can check this list.
A more accessible Drop & Go moving forward
Before 2020, Victory Liner’s Cubao terminal has already been open 24/7 for its passenger services. It was only a matter of time before its cargo services would be the same, given the need for speedy and reliable deliveries at this time. Asked whether this would also be applied to Drop & Go’s provincial outlets, Briones said it would still require further study because of the distinct dynamics in provinces.
As for the Cubao cargo padala branch, Victory Liner’s Operations Manager is hopeful about making the initiative a lasting privilege to its customers. “This will most likely end up being permanent, especially if we go back to normal, since there is a small number of customers who want to transact when there are fewer people and no traffic,” Briones added.
