(President: Yoshinari Kitajima; hereinafter "DNP") jointly created the Distribution and Delivery Matching Service (hereinafter referred to as "the service") in aim to resolve various logistics issues in the fast-growing economy of the Philippines and the whole Southeast Asia. The service received an award from the "MaaS*1 & Innovative Business Model AWARD (commonly known as: MaaS Award) 2020” with the best award of excellence in the business model category.

[Main Features of Distribution and Delivery Matching Service]
- A service that matches shippers and truck drivers using web and smartphone applications.
- This service allows you to set the optimal delivery route, manage the location information and operation history of trucks, and issue digital delivery certificates within its cloud environment.
- In cases the driver is a sole proprietor, during a strong delivery demand, it is difficult for them to receive orders while driving and at the same time calculate the most efficient and shortest route for multiple delivery projects. By utilizing this service, the driver can now respond to multiple deliveries while managing and maximizing their logistic efficiency.
[Background of how this service started in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia]
In response to the rapid economic growth in the Philippines, flow rate of good have increased but problems such as goods not reaching the stores (where consumers go on a daily basis) could be seen due to the lack of logistics companies and severe traffic congestion in the city roads. Aimed to help improve the logistics system of the country, this service took form by combining the FinTech services of GMS and the Cloud system developed by DNP.
GMS provides FinTech services using IoT technology to help the poor and low-income families who work hard but cannot pass credit screening in availing a loan to have their own vehicle. Drivers whom were able to fully pay off their tricycle (three-wheeled taxi) loan using our FinTech service will now be able to purchase small trucks which they can use for their own delivery service business. Furthermore, in order to help the truck driver gain income and pay their loan, the driver needs to process multiple deliveries efficiently.
DNP has developed a cloud based system where drivers can match with shippers and come up with the most fastest efficient route. The system has various functions such as locating the truck position, recording the history of operation, and issue digital delivery certificates as well.
With this service, the driver, who is a sole proprietor, can acquire a stable amount of work while being able to comply to the strong shipping demand. It enables the shipper to deliver more goods in a timely manner, and help solve the current challenges in the aspect of logistics in line with the economic growth.
Through this service, it is possible to solve the social issues we currently have by improving the total income of the low-income groups in the Philippines and the whole Southeast Asia. Having a common goal, GMS and DNP signed a capital and business alliance agreement in 2018. Since July 2019, the two companies have been collaborating with a major Philippine food and sundries wholesaler to conduct a field trial of the distribution and delivery matching service, and are working on further development of the business.
