Caltex PH Expands Footprint by 8 Service Stations

As the government allows more businesses to open, transportation is slowly returning to the country’s roads. Caltex, marketed by Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), has announced the opening of 8 new service stations in areas vital to the country’s food supply chain.

Chevron recently opened two new Caltex stations in El Nido, Palawan. Palawan; one along Western Nautical Highway, Brgy. Puting Tubig, Calapan, Oriental Mindoro; one along Duat, Pulungmasle in Guagua, Pampanga; one in Santiago-Tuguegaro Rd., Quezon, Isabela; one on the Legaspi City-Tiwi Coastal Rd., Rawis; and two stations in Leyte, one along the Diversion Road and the other along the busy National Highway in MacArthur.

“We understand the needs of businesses for easily accessible and quality fuels in order to efficiently transport goods and get local economies going. We are confident that these new stations will be able to help fulfill those needs,” shares Mr. Louie Zhang, General Manager for Products and Country Chairman, CPI.

These locations service primarily the agriculture and fisheries sector which accounts for 10 percent of the GDP and employs more than half the country’s labor force. The industry is one of the few trades available for many Filipinos living in remote, less-affluent regions. Having the fuel to make the journey to sell their produce is vital to the economic survival of these communities.
