It’s the 2020s. Any Filipino who has had a shot at adulting should know that if you want to get something delivered from one point to another as conveniently as possible, then you’ll only need to tap some of the top couriers in the Philippines.
Also known as freight and cargo delivery, shipping, or transport services, these companies carry your goods to wherever you please in the country — so you don’t have to. They must be affordable, secure, and now more than ever, able to guarantee your safety as a customer, too. But as time goes on, many of these services have shown that they are capable of so much more.
Take for example the bus company Victory Liner. Specifically, its delivery service known as Drop & Go. On top of the above-mentioned qualities of a good courier, Drop & Go boasts one more thing — how promptly it can deliver your package to your intended destination, all thanks to their next-day deliveries.
Why next-day delivery near Manila is key
From its name alone, we already know that next-day deliveries let you have your packages delivered just a day after having them sent out. This service usually applies to long-distance deliveries within the Philippines. This is in comparison to same-day deliveries, which are common for packages that only need to be transported within the same city or region.
With next-day deliveries near Manila, once you drop off your package at a courier service (or have it picked up by them), it’s guaranteed to reach its destination the following morning or afternoon. In Drop & Go’s case, deliveries are made within 24 to 48 hours at its various offices in Mega Manila, Central Luzon, and Northern Luzon. Whereas, most courier companies can only promise a minimum of three days for theirs.
As provincial public transportation in the country remains scarce at this time, the importance of overnight shipping mustn’t be underestimated. Suppose you’re a small and medium-sized entrepreneur (SME) in the food industry who has to send a product to a customer in the province, services like Drop & Go make sure that it gets the job done. That way, the item remains fresh and in good condition — of course, as long as you properly packed, weighed, and had it inspected by the service provider prior to delivery.

How does a service like Drop & Go do it?
Drop & Go is, first and foremost, the terminal-to-terminal cargo service of Victory Liner, the Philippines’ leading bus company with an unparalleled network of terminals in and outside of Luzon. For the longest time, Victory Liner has been providing Filipinos with affordable and convenient transportation to and from Manila.
In 2018, this service was expanded to include cargo delivery from Manila and nearby provinces, thereby catering to the growing needs of its customers, whether they be for personal or business purposes. Using Victory Liner’s fleet of buses that have daily operations, delivering packages couldn’t be faster. This is regardless of the destination in Central Luzon, Northern Luzon, and Mega Manila. For a period in 2020 and 2021, the service even reached Bicol and the Visayas courtesy of Drop & Go’s partnership with Bicol Isarog.
As of December 2021, Drop & Go has 37 cargo padala branches across the following regions: National Capital Region, Region I, Region II, Region III, and Cordillera Administrative Region.
Drop & Go’s point-to-point delivery service has also been made easier through DGMan. This provincial delivery service in collaboration with JoyRide allows you to have your item picked up from your home or retrieved from the Drop & Go office, saving you time and further resources.
Moreover, some Drop & Go branches are open 24/7, particularly those in Cubao and Pasay, which means you can drop off and pick up a package at the time most convenient to you. For items that need special handling or less than 24 hours of delivery, Drop & Go simply requires customers to have it disclosed upon drop-off and pay an additional fee for expedited cargo.
