We Opened 2 New Branches in the Island Pacific

Updated: Oct 5

In 2014, there has been a total of 2.3 million Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) around the world–a number that continues to grow to this day. With the growing OFW community comes the hefty amount of remittances and packages that flow into the country.


Reports in 2012 revealed that 8 out of 100 OFWs are working in the United States alone. With this large number, OFWs in the US and their families in the Philippines are going to need a freight forwarding company that they can trust and depend on to deliver and receive all their shipping and remittance needs.


In their efforts to extend their quality and trustworthy freight forwarding services to more OFWs in the US, Metro Box Cargo opened two new stores in the Island Pacific chain of supermarkets.


The new store in Elk Grove, CA opened in September 12 to service the whole Sacramento Area. This Northern California branch offers door-to-door Balikbayan box deliveries, money remittance services and airline ticketing services.


Meanwhile, the new store in Canoga Park is equipped to service the whole Greater Metropolitan LA since it opened in September 26. Services offered in this branch include money remittances and door-to-door balikbayan services.


Licensed under the Non Vessel-Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC), Metro Box Cargo is a trustworthy freight forwarding company dedicated to all of the shipping and remittance needs of the Filipino community in the San Francisco Bay Area.
