Hundreds of OFWs in Dubai lament over undelivered cargo boxes for many months now


Some 500 OFWs in Dubai are expressing annoyance after the cargo boxes they sent to the Philippines many months ago were still not delivered. 

In a PhilStar report filed on July 2, 2022, it reported that a group of OFWs has sent letters to media outlets in Mindanao, seeking help to connect them to Philippine agencies. 

These OFWs, according to the report, demand to investigate why Dubai-based cargo service company Allwin Cargo Dubai ‘cannot give them a clear explanation on where their packages are now.’ 

The Global Filipino Magazine has also received numerous messages of complaints against the same cargo company. 

“Good afternoon po, bka po mtulungan nyu kmi g mga kbayan kc po till now di pa ngrrply ang allwin balikbayan cargo and ilang months na po na delay ang mga packages,” Anna, not her true name, sent the message to The Global Filipino Magazine’s Facebook page. 

“Pnaghirapan po ng mga kbayan every items na pnapadala nmn till now wla rply ang allwin, kht twagan sla dedma na sla. Sna nmn po mktulong kau sa aming mga kabayan nyu slmat po,” she added. 

Below are the other messages transpired to the publication: 

In a July 24, 2022 statement, All Win Balikbayan Cargo released a statement, saying that they are aware of their customers’ complaints about the delay in releasing and delivery of their balikbayan boxes. 

“Samu’t-saring mga diskusyon ang aming naririnig at nababasa online. Nais naming ipaalam at iparating sainyo na ginagawa namin ang lahat para masolusyunan at makarating ang inyong mga pinadala sa mga mahal niyo sa buhay sa Pilipinas,” it added. 

It also clarified that their customers’ boxes are not on hold or abandoned, thus they were already coordinating with the Bureau of Customs to have them released. 

“Muli, paumanhin sa mga hindi inaasahang problema, nais naming humingi ng unawa at kaunti pang pasensya,” the management added.
