PGIN TEAMS UP WITH ARKILA. The Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN) and “Arkila,” a local delivery service provider, have collaborated to employ displaced PUV drivers as delivery riders to service customers in various parts of the province. Five driver-riders were already hired, with beneficiaries targeted at 50. They will follow a rotational shift in delivering food and non-food items to customers. PGIN has been creating COVID-19 recovery projects to alleviate the condition of the stakeholders in the public transportation sector. Arkila riders practice strict health protocols and observe contactless delivery to ensure the safety of riders and their customers. (photo/text by PGIN-CMO)
