Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) and Interpacific Highway Transport Corporation (IHTC) recently partnered up to address the domestic economy's mobility requirements. This was made possible after IPC supplied IHTC with 60 new units of their EXZ tractor heads.

The tractor heads can be configured for use in multiple roles and a wide range of applications. With it, they will further strengthen the diverse operations of IHTC.

Leading the simple program that marked the delivery of the new EXZ tractor heads were IPC President Hajime Koso and Isuzu Automotive Dealership Inc. President and COO Manny Aligada, who handed over the fresh units to IHTC General Manager Gilbert Singson and IHTC Operations Manager Cherry Lacson. The turnover activity was held last January 24 at IHTC’s truck yard in Plaridel, Bulacan.

According to Koso, the record figures logged by the Philippines automotive sector was not only fueled by private consumption, but also by the demand for trucks and buses. This was seen in Isuzu Philippines performance in 2016 with the surging sales of truck and buses.

“The truck segment is a significant contributor to the rise of the automotive industry, which in turn is an indicator of the growth currently experienced by the local economy,” said Koso.

The Isuzu Philippines chief added that demand coming from premier logistics providers like IHTC is also a testament to the heightened pace in the country’s delivery of goods and services.

IHTC's transport service rely on trucks that can move different type of cargo, each having their own requirement for transport. With this deal, IHTC's problem regarding its transport service has been solved.
