About Us


Metro Box Cargo is more than just a freight forwarding company as we are a company by Filipinos for Filipinos.  We understand what it means to send and receive a balikbayan box from the USA to the Philippines as we send and receive boxes to our loved ones as well. We make sure that our door to door service to the Philippines is fast and reliable. Having this in mind, expect a personalized service that has a special nuance to Filipino shipping. We know the importance of your cargo and we make sure that you have shipment tracking to receive a full service.
Metro Box Cargo has been in operation since 2013 to cater to the Filipino community in the San Francisco Bay Area. Egay Tajonera, the founder, started out as an employee of a freight forwarding company. Driving trucks and picking up the boxes himself for more than 10 years, he understood what the balikbayan box industry needed. He and his wife, Mabelle Perez-Tajonera, were inspired to transform all of their labor and inspiration into a business they could call their own by their enthusiasm for offering first-rate door-to-door service. Metro Box Cargo ensures a fully customized service from pick up to delivery. We understand that each cargo is different from a simple box shipping, car shipment, container shipment, sea cargo, shared container shipments, down to a dual citizen who happens to be a returning resident wanting to repatriate everything they own to the Philippines. We value the trust you bestowed on us. For this reason, we make sure to give the best service possible. 

On the other hand, Quezon City is where our Metro Box Cargo Manila office is situated. Edward Marcos, our head of Manila Operations, always makes sure that the consistency of good service is maintained. We have a fleet of vehicles, dependable drivers, and personnel working under his direction to provide you with the greatest service. From the United States of America to the Philippines, we are pleased to announce that we manage and plan all of our own logistical requirements.

Our objective is to offer a specialized service that is tailored to the demands of each individual customer. Whatever we do, no matter how big or small, we will always go above and beyond for you. Since "It's the simple things that matter" to Egay and Edward. Having this in mind, The Federal Maritime Commission has issued Metro Box Cargo a Non Vessel-Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) license with bond number 024617N. This license is required for US based companies or sole proprietors operating as a Non-Vessel- Operating Common Carriers (NVOCCs). 

We now serve customers all over the San Francisco Bay Area and are thrilled and proud to be part of the Balikbayan Box Industry. We sincerely hope you take pleasure in using our services as much as we do. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions or comments.
