Mober is now using EVs to fulfill Ikea’s delivery needs in PH
Have you guys been to Ikea’s sole Philippine branch in Pasay City yet? If not, we understand—it’s simply easier to get your furniture shopping done online or through the company’s smartphone app. This way, you can avoid long lines and traffic down south.
If you rely on Ikea’s online services to buy furniture, you’ll be happy to know that one of its local delivery partners is cleaning up its act.
Mober, one of the furniture manufacturer’s on-demand delivery partners here in the Philippine market, has announced that it has added electric vehicles to its local fleet. To be specific, the company is adding 10 new electric vans and two electric trucks. These units will now be partly responsible for getting Ikea purchases to customers’ homes.
