Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation (TMP) inaugurated today Toyota Mobility Solutions Philippines, Inc. (TMSPH), a wholly-owned subsidiary that will be a provider of mobility-related services.
With it, the automaker ventures into the development and offering of a range of ‘new mobility solutions’ that will enhance Toyota as a brand that creates value for society through a service business model. This will also allow TMP to further its effort to provide safety and comfort for Filipinos with TMSPH’s Vehicle Usership (VU) platforms, available for individuals and the business sector.
TMSPH presented an initial pipeline of services which include fleet-connected service, on-demand shuttle booking app, car sharing or rental, logistics matching service, and fleet management service. Additionally, TMSPH will complement Toyota Financial Services Philippines Corporation (TFSPH) in promoting and managing units under its full operating lease product called Kinto.
TMSPH president Ma. Cristina Fe Arevalo defined TMP’s concept of ‘new mobility’ as a suite of technology and data-driven lifestyle and business solutions that can address the day-to-day challenges of moving people and goods from one point to another.
Moreover, Arevalo highlighted that TMSPH will primarily support the operating efficiency and growth of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) of various industries which are vital in driving economic growth.
“We envision TMSPH to be at the center of the ‘new mobility’ ecosystem as an integrated, ‘one-stop’ mobility solutions provider to help advance businesses and address local communities’ needs,” said Arevalo.
The first of its kind among Toyota affiliates in the Southeast Asian region, TMSPH is considered a ‘New Mobility Dojo’ that is projected to modernize domestic mobility systems and the Internet of Things (IoT), potentially creating employment opportunities for technical but customer-centric professionals.
“I am committed to making sure that both Toyota Motor Philippines and, now, Toyota Mobility Solutions will continue to deliver on our promise of exceeding your expectations. We will share with you our vision of the future and the many exciting products and services that Toyota Mobility Solutions has to offer. I am really excited to give you a glimpse of what is to come,” said Alfred Ty, Chairman of Toyota Motor Philippines.
