Marinduque, head of sales for Visayas and Min­danao. The com­pany is also look­ing at set­ting up a work­shop ser­vice fa­cil­ity in the south­ern is­land, ac­cord­ing to Peachy G. Ta­mayo, BJ Mer­can­tile mar­ket­ing man­ager. “Gen­er­ally we want to pen­e­trate the key cities, and we have started out in Cebu, then Min­danao,” Ms. Ta­mayo said. Apart from the pro­vi­sion of trans­port units, Sca­nia also aims to bring in its dig­i­tal sys­tem to im­prove work and lo­gis­tics flow in min­ing and con­tainer ter­mi­nals. —
