Even before the establishment of Delbros Leasing, Delbros, as a company, shares a long history with the Port of Manila. In 1949, the company won the bid to manage the Port of Manila and heavily assisted the government with free port services to address the unexpected traffic caused by the Port's growth from increasing foreign investments entering the economy. Delbros offered free labor and deliveries during a time when it was most needed – That demand for port services slowly led to the establishment of a more specialized company focused on container transport.
On June 10, 1981, Delbros, under J. Roberto Delgado, went into a joint venture agreement with the American company Flexi Van Leasing, Inc. to form a new company, Flexi-Van Leasing Phil., Inc. With a humble beginning of 100 chassis, the company leased equipment geared towards container shipping from port to warehouses as well as the repair, importing and purchasing of standardized equipment overseas.
In 1989, Delbros agreed to taking on a new minority partner, replacing Flexi-Van Leasing Inc. and becoming DELBROS Waterfront Leasing Co. Inc. Through the management and support of the group, Delbros Leasing grew from a fleet of 240 chassis to over a thousand by 2003.
Presently, Delbros Leasing has become the largest chassis fleet at over 3000 units, serving 15 major yards in ports across the country. We are the first and only company that can provide a nationwide roll on and off chassis hitch service, making our chassis accessible across the whole archipelago – the backbone for the country’s logistics needs. We are proud to be an integral part of the logistics industry and are focused on breaking the 5000 unit intermodal chassis mark in the Philippines by 2015, at a total fleet investment of $50,000,000.
