J&T Express Shipping
Through J&T Express, customers can send documents and packages containing gadgets, electronic items, fragile items, non-fragile items, and liquid items (subject to rules and regulations, of course). These can be shipped to any destination across the Philippines.
As for packaging, the company provides different sizes of pouches and boxes, depending on the size and weight of your package. The “extra small box” (30 x 24 x 15cm), for example, can carry 3 to 4 kilograms of items. Meanwhile, the “large box” (60 x 36 x 32 cm) can carry 10 to 12 kilograms of items.
Simply proceed to the nearest branch to send your package. You can also have it picked up by booking through J&T Express’ website, mobile app, or 24/7 customer hotline.
J&T Express Tracking
When it comes to tracking your package, you can easily do this by using the “Trace & Track” feature on the J&T Express website. Visit https://www.jtexpress.ph/index/query/gzquery.html, enter your waybill number, and the status of your package will appear on screen.
Another method is by using the J&T mobile app. You can make bookings and track packages using the J&T Philippines mobile app, which you can download via Google Play at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jtexpress.PhClient&hl=en&gl=US
In addition, you can also track your packages by calling the J&T hotline at (02) 8911-1888. This hotline is available 24/7, and you can call them for any inquiries or concerns.
J&T Express Rates
J&T Express is known for its affordable shipping rates. Of course, the exact amount would depend on the origin of the package, its destination, weight (in kilograms), and dimensions (in centimeters). There is also a maximum weight of 50 kilograms allowed per package.
As an example — based on the latest J&T Express rates — sending a 2-kilogram package from Metro Manila to a province in Luzon would cost around PHP 190. If you are sending it to Visayas, the rate is PHP 200, and if you are sending it to Mindanao, the rate is PHP 220.
