CLARK FREEPORT – There is good news to Filipinos living and working in Dubai, the biggest and most liberal state of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Imerex, a Filipino- owned leading cargo business in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), is now open for business to provide freight forwarding services to Filipinos in the Gulf state after its soft opening on Wednesday, May 16.

Imerex, a Medal Consortium Company composed of five Kapampangan entrepreneurs, has major investments in the Metro Clark area including hotels, food and beverage and real estate among others.

Imerex was founded by the Mercado brothers Ric and Mark of MRM Holdings, who both worked as overseas Filipino workers in the KSA.

According to their company profile, it was through their hard work, perseverance and love for their families that inspired them to start the business which eventually catered to the Filipino communities.

The company eventually became the leading cargo business in the Kingdom.

Imerex grew and expanded to the United States and Taiwan through the years and is now with Dubai as the latest addition to its unprecedented success story.

Dr. Irineo “Bong” Alvaro, Jr, Medal Consortium president, said the cargo opening in Dubai is a proud initiative of the consortium which saw the necessity and potential since Dubai is the largest transportation hub in the region making delivery of cargoes as a relevant and high-demand service.

The UAE is geographically located at the junction of trade routes from East and West, Asia and Europe.

“With the hundreds of thousands of our kababayan now in Dubai, we would like to pay tribute to the sacrifices and hard work of the OFWs in the form of their balikbayan boxes as a by-product of the blood and sweat of our modern day heroes,” Alvaro said.

“The balikbayan box is a long tradition of pasalubong to many Filipinos abroad as it brings joy, happiness and priceless smiles to their love ones back home,” Alvaro stressed.

“With that in mind, Imerex is committed to preserve this tradition by making sure the Balikbayan box is delivered on time and in good condition sealed with love,” he added.

Also in attendance at the soft opening were Ric Mercado and Jeffrey Del Mundo, two of the founding members of MEDAL. Imerex Dubai is located at Al Bada Oasis Building Shop #30, Hudaiba Street (across the Iranian Hospital), Satwa, Dubai, UAE.

Business hours are from 10 am to 10 pm Monday to Sunday. To schedule a pick up, customers can call +971 552 941987.
