Grab Philippines celebrates Buwan ng Tagapaghatid, recognizes Grab driver and delivery partners


Grab Philippines dedicated the month of November as Buwan ng Tagapaghatid – celebrating the invaluable contributions of Grab drivers and delivery-partners through month-long activities culminating on 28 November, Sunday.

Grab Philippines has become more than just a source of livelihood opportunities for its partners. Over the years, Grab Philippines has deepened its relationship with every driver and delivery-partner, by helping them become the best at what they do while enhancing their competitiveness in a digital-first economy.

Buwan ng Tagapaghatid is part of Grab Philippines’ broader range of programs and initiatives dedicated to its driver and delivery-partners. It highlights, recognizes, and celebrates, the different stories of modern-day heroism of Grab driver- and delivery-partners, while emphasizing their role in society and the economy.


“Mahalaga ang papel ng ating mga Grab driver and delivery-partners nitong pandemya, at mas mahalaga ang kanilang magiging gampanin sa ating economic recovery. Sa pamamagitan ng ating platform, patuloy nilang tinutugunan ang mga pangangailangan ng ating mga kababayan – ito man ay sa ride-hailing o deliveries; at sa pamamagitan ng ibat-ibang programa at initiative ng Grab, natutugunan natin ang kanilang mga pang-araw-araw na pangangailangan, at natutulungan

natin silang paunlarin ang kanilang mga kabuhayan. Nagpapasalamat ako sa tiwala, dedikasyon, at pakikiisa ng ating mga Ka-Grab, at makakaasa kayo na patuloy na makikinig at aalalay ang Grab sa bawa’t isa sa ating mga partners” says Grab Philippines Country Head Grace Vera Cruz.

  • Driver and delivery-partners will also receive exclusive promo codes and perks which they can use for meals and other necessities;
  • Grab offices were turned into 5-Star Ka-Grab Pitstops where partners can drop by to get freebies from Grab’s brand partners.

GrabExperience: Grab Philippines Leaders become delivery-partners for a day

Despite being one of the biggest tech platforms in the country, Grab continues to keep its ears to the ground to gain unique perspectives from consumers, merchants, and partners. To kick off this year’s Buwan ng Tagapaghatid, leaders from Grab Philippines took a break from their busy routine as they become delivery-partners for a day.

Each leader was teamed up with a delivery-partner throughout the journey – where they get first-hand on-ground experiences, allowing them to develop tailored solutions to further support Grab’s driver communities through their respective roles.
