Logistics – Philippino Style

A common scene in Central on Sundays – Philippinos sending parcels home. There are more than 4 million Philippinos working as overseas foreign workers. They send home more than seven billion US dollars annually. No wonder they are referred to as the “new economic heroes”. Among them, more than 70% are women.

About 150,000 work in Hong Kong, making up 2% of the Hong Kong population. No wonder sending parcels home has become a big business.
