Shell, the global leader in power and energy, and Angkas, the first app-based motorcycle taxi ride-hailing service in the Philippines, have established a partnership that aims to make the Angkas bikers’ lives better through the Shell GO+ Program .
With the partnership, which was launched recently in Cagayan de Oro City, Angkas biker-partners who sign up will be given Angkas branded Shell GO+ Pro cards which they can use for discounts, benefits, and rewards in all Shell retail stations.
Anchored on the idea “Shell, partner ng mga Angkas bikers sa buhay,” the partnership aims to make the Shell GO+ the bikers’ partner as they serve the mobility needs of the Filipino.
“We came up with Angkas service not only to provide a safe, convenient, and affordable mode of transportation for Filipino commuters, but also to help provide a decent source of living for our biker-partners,” Angkas Head of Operations David Medrana noted. “I’m happy that we struck up a partnership with Pilipinas Shell which will help Angkas provide better perks to our biker-partners and make their lives serving the commuting public a little better,” Medrana added.
“We are really excited about this partnership. Through the Shell Go+ Pro card, Angkas biker-partners will get to enjoy multiple reward options for more savings,” Shell Philippines Payments and Loyalty Manager Kristine Cerezo announced.
“Each time they purchase at any participating Shell retail station, they get to earn points that they can use as payment when they purchase Shell Fuels such as Shell V-Power and Fuel Save; lubricants such as Shell Advance; and convenience store items at Shell Select and Deli2Go,” she added.
Bikers can also enjoy 60% off on Shell Helix Oil Change+ service, plus a wide range of reward items such as electronics, food and grocery vouchers, appliances, and other premium items that members can choose from.
As part of the Shell GO+ Pro Program, the member and their chosen dependents get the chance to avail of scholarships, and an insurance policy covering road accidents to give their family peace of mind during trips.
“We have been constantly improving our loyalty rewards program for the past two decades to make it even better,” Shell Philippines Retail Marketing Delivery Manager Arvin Obmerga said. “We want to encourage all Angkas biker-partners to sign-up for Shell GO+ Pro to enjoy a more rewarding riding experience.”
The Shell-Angkas partnership launch commenced with a motorcade from the Lapasan Shell station to the Shell station in Baloy where the launch event was held.
Sign-ups for Shell GO+ Pro were held during the event. Those who signed up for the card on that day, had the chance to join the raffle to win exciting prizes from Shell. There were also trivia games to familiarize them with the available benefits and a free oil-change service for the first 100 bikers.
