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.
