FBSG gets transportation boost from GoGoVan this CNY
Project GoGo Gongxi facilitates free pick up from Bank Boxes and selected
Singapore January 19, 2016 – The Food Bank Singapore (FBSG) has announced a collaboration with GoGoVan that meets FBSG’s transportation requirements for Project GoGo Gongxi this Chinese New Year (CNY).
GoGoVan, a tech start-up that pioneered point-to-point, same-day delivery services through a mobile app platform, will support FBSG’s transportation needs by collecting donations from FBSG’s Bank Box locations and selected GIANT hypermarkets and transporting them to the FBSG warehouse. This is part of GoGoVan’s corporate social responsibility efforts this festive season.
To further encourage food donations, a unique discount code will be created for corporate donors this festive period. This can also be used by FBSG and beneficiaries for the delivery and collection of food donations.
“With the goodwill and enthusiasm of our crowd-sourced drivers, GoGoVan is delighted to partner with FBSG for this meaningful initiative,” said William Ban, Singapore Country Manager of GoGoVan.
“GoGoVan’s founding vision is to empower the community, so FBSG’s mission is exactly what we stand for as a company – sharing our resources as a community, which goes a long way towards enriching our society. The GoGoVan team and all our drivers are culturally diverse, and we believe in the importance of connectedness in our society. We look forward to more collaboration opportunities in the future,” he added.
Project GoGo Gongxi will run from January 18 till February 29, 2016.
“We are truly delighted to collaborate with GoGoVan this festive season. This marks a major milestone for us, as our first collaboration with a logistics partner. This partnership has significantly reduced delivery costs, which may have discouraged companies from donating in the past,” said Nichol Ng, Chief Food Officer of FBSG.
She hopes that more donors will be encouraged to donate their excess foods for the good of the community.
Corporates or individuals can donate at selected GIANT hypermarkets at VivoCity and
Parkway Parade, and Bank Boxes at:
· City Square Mall: Level 2, besides the Customer Service Counter
· Quayside Isle, Sentosa Cove: B1, outside Management Office
· NUS OC Techno Edge (Engineering Canteen)
Alternatively, donors can drop their excess food at the FBSG warehouse at 39 Keppel Road, Tanjong Pagar Distripark, #01-2/04, Singapore 089065.
