MOBER Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dennis Ng's pioneering the switch of the company's fleets from traditional to electric vehicles (EVs) got him a spot in Esquire's Trailblazer List for 2023.

Despite economic turmoil due to the pandemic in October 2021, Mober made a significant stride toward growth and sustainability by being the first logistics company in the Philippines to introduce EVs to its fleet.

It has facilitated the transition toward greener transport by providing an environment-friendly logistics option to big companies committed to achieving their net-zero goals.

With his experience as a serial entrepreneur and EY-trained auditor, Ng led Mober to further boost green logistics.

"As we aim to help more retail giants, big FMCGs (Fast-Moving Consumer Goods) and logistics companies decarbonize their fleets quickly, we also want to inspire other local startups to jumpstart their sustainability journey and contribute to achieving a greener economy," said Ng.

Ng added that as a go-to green+tech logistics provider, Mober leverages EVs is "utilizing technology to achieve efficiencies and advocating for sustainability in the industry."

He founded Mober in 2015 as the local startup offering an on-demand platform for cost-effective, same-day delivery service for SMEs, shoppers and households.

Mober has added 16 electric vans and four electric trucks to its traditional fleet. It also plans to re-fleet around 180 of its gas-powered vans and trucks into electric vehicles by mid-2024.

The company has inked a deal with global location technology, what3words, to ensure deliveries arrive at their precise drop-off points faster and more efficiently. The accurate mapping technology helps the company further save energy from missed or wrong addresses.
