Shopee Xpress serves as the integrated logistics service provider for Shopee, the country’s leading e-commerce platform. Online shopping has seen a boom in recent years, especially with much of the population confined indoors due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the efficient delivery of goods has become more important than ever.  

For bulk delivery requirements, the Isuzu NMR85H steps up to the plate with a 4JJ1-TCC Euro IV-compliant diesel mill that's capable of 122 hp and 354 Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Hauling a 14-ft. body configuration for cargo, the truck’s specifications are ideal for safely making high-volume deliveries between logistics hubs. Isuzu’s wide dealer network also provides a steady supply of available parts as well as aftersales support such as maintenance to further improve productivity in operations.
