Mober PH Secures USD 2 Million In Seed Funding

Mober, a Philippine logistics company at the forefront of sustainable delivery solutions, recently announced a USD 2 million seed funding round led by RT Heptagon Holdings (RTHH) under the leadership of Chairman and President Rex Tiri. This investment accelerates Mober’s integration of electric vehicles (EVs) into its fleet, aiming to revolutionize green logistics in the Philippines.

With the new funding, Mober has expanded its EV fleet to 60 vehicles, enhancing its capability to meet the rising demand for eco-friendly logistics services. This move aligns with the global shift towards sustainable practices, significantly reducing the carbon footprint of delivery operations.

A notable advancement in Mober’s strategy is the development of a Transport Management System (TMS), which not only optimizes delivery efficiency but also tracks the CO2 savings achieved through the use of EVs. This feature underscores Mober’s commitment to transparency and accountability in its environmental impact.

Mober has also inaugurated a flagship EV charging station in Pasay City, designed to support its growing fleet, particularly those serving IKEA Philippines. This initiative is part of Mober’s broader strategy to enhance the sustainability of its operations and support the green transition of its clients.

Expanding its sustainable delivery solutions, Mober is set to electrify same-day delivery services for SM Appliance Center, further integrating eco-friendly practices into mainstream retail logistics. This initiative reflects Mober’s capability to adapt and innovate in response to the evolving needs of the market and its clients.

Mober’s commitment to green logistics extends to its partnerships with major companies such as Kuehne + Nagel, Nestle, and Maersk, with plans to electrify their logistics operations. This collaborative approach highlights Mober’s role as a catalyst for the widespread adoption of sustainable delivery solutions in the Philippine logistics industry.

A significant milestone in Mober’s journey is its collaboration with IKEA Philippines, aiming to electrify 100 percent of IKEA’s home delivery services by 2025. This ambitious project underscores Mober’s commitment to leading the charge in sustainable logistics, setting a benchmark for environmental responsibility in the retail sector.

Dennis Ng, Mober Founder and CEO, expressed gratitude for the support from RT Heptagon Holdings and Mr. Rex Tiri, emphasizing the funding round as a pivotal moment in Mober’s mission to drive sustainable urban mobility. This investment not only fuels Mober’s growth but also reinforces its commitment to making a positive environmental impact.

  1. Mober needs to train their drivers better. Somewhere south of Makati, inside a well-known private subdivision, a Mober truck did not comply with the stop sign and just turned left without care. I was not very near, but if I was +10km/hr faster, we could have had a close encounter.
