With the likes of LBC, GrabExpress, and Lalamove dominating the courier services market in the Philippines, there's another online delivery platform you might not have heard of—the Transportify app.

Transportify differentiates itself from other logistics companies with a broad selection of vehicles built for heavy-duty deliveries at affordable rates. Whether you're a small business owner who needs to deliver products to customers or someone moving to a new home, there's a suitable vehicle you can book through the Transportify app.

Here's everything you need to know about how to book Transportify services.

What is Transportify Philippines?

Transportify[1] is an app-based trucking logistics company that provides on-demand, same-day, and door-to-door pick-up and delivery services in Metro Manila and Luzon. Launched in the Philippines in 2016, Transportify also operates in Thailand and Indonesia under the Deliveree Group.

Transportify App Features

Through the Transportify web app or mobile app, individuals and businesses can book and manage deliveries of goods, cargo, merchandise, and more. Various features in the app make it easy and convenient for customers to do so.

👉 Real-Time Transportify Tracking

Using GPS technology, the app allows live tracking of the whereabouts of the vehicle they booked for delivery—from when the driver accepts the booking until the goods reach their destination. This Transportify tracking feature shows real-time ETAs (estimated time of arrival), so customers know when to expect the driver to arrive at their location for pickup and when the item will be delivered.

👉 Flexible Booking Schedules

You have three delivery scheduling options to choose from in the app. You can either book an immediate delivery or schedule it for later.

  • Quick - Request a delivery now or in the next hour.
  • Schedule - Pre-schedule your delivery for up to 14 days ahead.
  • Full day - Book a van or truck rental service at a fixed price for 10 hours in one day to destinations within the 40-km radius of your pickup address.

👉 Multiple Drop-Offs and Route Optimization

With the Transportify app, you can add up to 15 destinations to a single booking to maximize the delivery of goods to different places. There's also a route optimization feature that helps you reduce delivery costs and time by identifying the shortest route for delivery with multiple drop-offs.

👉 24/7 Live Customer Service

Transportify has a working in-app live chat feature that lets users ask questions, report issues or concerns, file a complaint, or cancel a booking and get immediate response and resolution with the help of an agent.

👉 Chat with Drivers

Once you've booked a delivery, you may call or chat with your driver and vice versa via the Transportify app.

How to Book Transportify: FAQs

1. Does Transportify deliver on Sundays and holidays?

how to book transportify - does transportify deliver on sundays and holidays

Yes. Transportify vehicles are available 24/7 for pick-up and delivery on weekends and even during the holidays.

2. Where does Transportify deliver?

Transportify delivers to and from Metro Manila and most cities and provinces all over Luzon. Transportify also offers interisland trucking services in Cebu, Davao, Cagayan De Oro, General Santos, Iloilo, Bocolod, Dumagueste, Tacloban, Mindoro, and more.

To know if Transportify supports pick-up and delivery to your required locations, use the Address Checker tool on its website.[4]

3. Transportify vs Lalamove: which is better?

The better courier service to use depends on the size and volume of goods you need to deliver.

For small items that can fit in a motorcycle, go for Lalamove or other couriers like GrabExpress, Angkas, and Borzo that offer delivery services via motorcycle. Transportify has no motorcycles in its vehicle fleet. 

But for transporting larger and heavier cargo, Transportify is the better choice because of its selection of delivery vans and trucks. It also covers a wider service area (most of Luzon) than Lalamove, which delivers only within Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

When it comes to delivery fees and additional service fees, Transportify rates are generally cheaper than Lalamove rates.

Transportify also provides a better customer service experience across its different channels. There's a 24/7 in-app live chat feature you may use anytime you have a delivery issue. Its customer service team also responds to inquiries quickly on the Transportify Facebook page.

4. Can Transportify deliver pets?

No. Transportify does not allow the transporting of live animals such as pets (dogs, cats, birds, fish, etc.), pigs, and poultry that require a special type of delivery vehicle. The online delivery platform can accommodate only non-living things, including pet items like cages, carriers, and crates.

Other prohibited items you can't deliver via Transportify include cash (regardless of currency), flammable gas and fuels like LPG tanks, fake/counterfeit goods, counterfeit/unregistered medicines, and other illegal and dangerous items.

Final Thoughts

Now that you know what Transportify is and how to book Transportify, don't you think it's the perfect delivery platform for running a small business and lipat-bahay?

But, of course, to ensure that you're getting the best service and price, you should compare Transportify's rates and features versus those of other delivery service providers in the Philippines.
