If there’s anything that this past year has shown us, it’s that there are truly no limits to Filipinos’ creative and entrepreneurial spirit. After all, quarantine has driven most of us to think outside the box — resulting in an interesting variety of emerging online businesses, from food and daily necessities, to plants and other home decor. Clearly, we could simply go on and on about the many different quarantine businesses that caught our eye.
So, it’s no surprise that many business owners would want a cargo service to help them through a wider delivery range. The more places in the country that you can reach with your products, the better! Imagine being able to send packages via delivery from Northern Luzon to Bicol and Visayas, and back. Sounds quite ideal, right? While we’ve already talked about Victory Liner’s Drop & Go service, allow us to introduce a few more things…
What’s the latest on Victory Liner cargo delivery?
At this point, you’ve probably already heard about Drop & Go, as well as the partnership between Victory Liner and Bicol Isarog. Through this terminal-to-terminal cargo service, you can send packages from Baguio all the way to Bicol. But guess what? Now, they’re also offering Northern Luzon to Visayas delivery, with more pick-up and drop-off points, too.
Yup, your ever-trusty cargo padala service just got better! Now, you can send packages from Northern and Central Luzon to Bicol Region and Visayas, and back. Curious about where and how you can get this? Read on to find out more!
Pick-up and drop-off points for cargo delivery from Northern Luzon to Visayas and Bicol
You can bring your packages any day of the week between the hours of 8am and 5pm. However, it’s best to keep in mind that the cargo padala bus leaves EDSA Cubao for Northern Luzon, Bicol, and Visayas every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 5pm. That said, it’s always good to plan ahead!

Why it’s a great delivery option for start-ups and small businesses
Or better yet, what sets this collaboration between Victory Liner and Bicol Isarog apart from the rest? Clearly, this pandemic has compelled many Filipinos to think outside the box and come up with different types of local businesses. So, it only makes sense to go for the best delivery service option possible, especially amid these uncertain times! Allow us to break it down for you:
Your delivery range can go the distance (literally and figuratively)
For starters, we can’t think of anything better than having a wide selection of routes around Northern Luzon, Bicol, and Visayas. No matter how far your cargo padala needs to go, you’re still ensured that they’ll make it to the chosen destination within four to five days. That’s quite the speedy Luzon to Visayas delivery, if you ask us!
It’s safe, reliable, and fast (who says you have to pick only one?)
There’s also the matter of safety and efficiency. Not only is this service ideal for bulk orders and deliveries for your small business, but it also gives you the extra peace of mind that your packages will remain in tip-top condition throughout! In fact, you can even request for a sticker indicating that your cargo contains perishable and/or fragile items.
And for those who are just new to their business, Victory Liner offers simplified steps on sending your cargo. (More on in a bit!) So, that’s one less logistical headache off your list.
Delivery fees for as low as ₱150!
Of course, we’re well aware that prices are a major factor when shipping cargo to Bicol and Visayas. Fortunately, this one is absolutely affordable — even compared to door-to-door courier fees! Prices start at ₱150 for deliveries to Naga, ₱180 to Legazpi, and ₱180 to Visayas.
If you’re using your own packing, take note that the exact prices may vary depending on the exact destination, as well as the size and monetary value of your package. Alternatively, you can buy the Fit-All-You-Can boxes that come with fixed delivery rates.
How to send cargo from Northern Luzon to Bicol and Visayas (and back)
The best part about sending your Luzon to Visayas delivery through Drop & Go? It only takes a few easy steps for your package to get to where it needs to be! Here’s what you need to do:
- Pack your cargo padala properly. Packaged goods (especially perishable items) must be placed in crates or styrofoam containers, while documents should be in a sealed brown envelope. Don’t forget to include the names of both the sender and the recipient, too!
- Head to the nearest drop-off terminal (see full list above) and proceed to the Drop & Go office.
- Fill out the freight form. Make sure to put the contact numbers of both the sender and the recipient.
- To find out how much your delivery will cost, the Victory Line personnel will weigh and inspect your cargo padala. You can also choose to buy the Fit-All-You-Can boxes that come with fixed delivery rates. Keep in mind that illegal, dangerous, poisonous, or live goods are not allowed onboard! Find the full list of prohibited cargo here.
- Pay the necessary cargo delivery fee.
- Your cargo is now all set and ready to be delivered!
Want to make the most out of this cargo padala service? You can also opt to sign up for a business account here. Make sure to prepare these requirements for your business account application: BIR Form 2303 or Certificate of Registration and an initial deposit of ₱100,000 for the e-wallet account.
Anyway, if these aren’t enough to convince you to try Victory Liner’s Drop & Go service, then perhaps these testimonies from small business owners would. After all, amid all the transport restrictions brought about by the pandemic, there’s nothing like a dependable cargo delivery service to ease your worries and fulfil your logistical needs.
