2GO, a top logistics and transportation provider in the Philippines, is committed to improving the movement of goods to and from Mindanao, specifically in Cagayan de Oro (CDO). This effort aims to bolster business opportunities for local companies and corporations in the region.

Cagayan de Oro City, acting as a gateway to Mindanao, enjoys a strategic economic advantage due to its central location among other major cities in the region. This location is crucial for the area’s economic growth. With a thriving retail sector, a growing manufacturing industry, a strong motor vehicle market, and an expanding service and hospitality sector, Cagayan De Oro is an ideal platform for 2GO to thrive in Mindanao. Additionally, it plays a significant role in supplying hatching eggs (80%) to Metro Manila and poultry and palm oil products to Visayas.

Boosting a Growing Economy

Cagayan De Oro is 2GO’s main shipping hub in Mindanao. The company operates four weekly voyages between Cagayan de Oro and Manila, as well as two weekly services to and from Cebu. Furthermore, it provides a weekly service to Bacolod, Iloilo, and Tagbilaran. This well-planned network reflects 2GO’s dedication to moving goods efficiently between any point in the Philippines and Mindanao.

Ralph Paguio, Chairman of the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines – Northern Mindanao, emphasizes, “Cagayan de Oro is a city full of potential. A reliable logistics partner is crucial for a growing economy to become a central hub. Our port and airport, combined with our strategic location, position us as a pivotal gateway to other regional cities and all of Mindanao. 2GO’s presence brings significant potential for transformation and opportunity.”

Faye Alonzo-Babar, 2GO Business Unit Head for Express and Forwarding, adds, “2GO stands out as the sole passenger-cargo operator from Cagayan De Oro to Manila, utilizing one of the fastest and most modern vessels in the Philippines. As an archipelago, having a dependable supply chain schedule is vital for traders and consumers to optimize product shelf life. Moreover, a strong transportation and logistics partner empowers local businesses and industries to move goods and people efficiently.”
