TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd. (DNP), Uniadex Ltd. (Uniadex) and Global Mobility Service Inc. (GMS) are pleased to announce the establishment of a Philippines-based logistics and delivery matching service joint venture (JV). The JV, to be known as 3Q DASH TECHNOLOX, INC., was initiated on February 4, 2022 and has been launched in anticipation of further expansion in logistics demand, and continuous growth going forward amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

JV Background

The Philippines has witnessed increased logistics flows due to several years of solid economic growth. Numerous delivery-related time and cost challenges have arisen, however, including shortages of delivery drivers, severe and chronic congestion in the city center, and delays in the delivery mechanism infrastructure. At the same time, due to the impact of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, online shopping and food deliveries have seen sharply increased usage, and delivery-related challenges are becoming more serious.

In anticipation of overcoming these challenges, and of expected continuous growth of the delivery in the future, the three partners have established a Philippine-based JV, and will provide a logistics and delivery matching service targeting Last Mile logistics1.

1: Last Mile logistics. In the logistics industry, the last one mile refers to the delivery of parcels and packages from the final delivery base to end users, such as residences and work places.
