Eruption of the Taal Volcano impacts delivery of Balikbayan shipments

We would like to inform you that the Taal volcano south of Manila causes violent ash emissions and numerous earthquakes, and that a dangerous eruption may be imminent.

The Depot SOUTH of our Philippine logistics partner, which carries out deliveries to Laguna, Batangas and Quezon, has suspended all deliveries until further notice. In addition, the headquarters in Balintawak, Quezon City, will also stop all deliveries to Cavite until further notice.

Deliveries to all other areas will continue as long as circumstances shall permit.

We hope for your understanding.

Please note: All times and dates are estimated to the best of our knowledge and are subject to change without prior notice and without giving reasons. Unfortunately we have no control over transit times as long as our containers are on sail. Weather conditions, delays in onward transportation within the Philippines and other factors beyond our control may affect delivery times. For this reason, we cannot make any binding statements regarding the delivery date of your shipment.
Air Freight

Choose air freight, if the transit time of ocean freight takes too long for your shipment. In light of the complex IATA rules we are proud to be able to offer this shipping method for your private Balikbayan shipments.
Online Shopping
You shop - we ship: Make your online shopping conveniently from home and enter our address as the delivery address. We take care of the shipping.

This service is mainly used by Philippine-based customers.
Moving Container
For Returning Residents ("Balikbayan") some particularly favorable regulations apply. To ensure that your relocation to the Philippines runs smoothly, you should observe however some important rules.
Sea Freight
Shipping by ISO container is the thousandfold proven shipping method for Balikbayan consignments.
Due to straightforward handling we are able to ship at least two containers every month.

Die Inhaber"Is your wife a Filipina?" In the beginning we were often asked this question. Today most of our customers know, that we are a German family owned company with no personal connection to the Philippines. In 2007 we heard about the cultural concept "Balikbayan Box" and about its particular importance to Filipinos.

In 2009 we started our company in humble premises in Düsseldorf. Since 2010 we are based in Wülfrath. The new premises offer plenty of opportunity to grow, in order for us to continue adapting our services to our customers needs.

We have long since outgrown those humble beginnings. Today we are one of the leading Balikbayan consolidators that operate in Germany and beyond. On average we load a container with Balikbayan shipments every 2 weeks and ship Air cargo on a weekly basis.
