OneStop Logistics Solutions, Inc. (OLSI), the end-to-end logistics services arm of Magsaysay Shipping and Logistics (MSL), hosted a special dinner for clients and partners last Wednesday, October 16, at the Manila Hotel. The dinner was held at the celebrated Red Jade restaurant of the acclaimed hotel. Around a hundred guests, MSL MPs, and valued customers and business partners graced the gathering, with MSL Group President and CEO Jesse H. Maxwell, and special guest and keynote speaker former senator and now President and CEO of the Manila Hotel Atty. Joey Lina leading the august personalities present.  


Tonight is really all about thanking you for being our customers. We’ve come a long way and we certainly wouldn’t be where we are today without your support and patronage, so we thank you,” Mr. Maxwell said in his opening remarks. “As we look forward to the next 15 years, we hope to grow with you and help each other take the next step in our future. We look forward to growing our partnership with you and we thank you for your trust in us.” The MSL leader was also presented with a surprise birthday cake, commemorating his birthday days prior.  


Atty. Joey Lina shared anecdotal wisdom during his keynote, congratulating OLSI and clients alike, some of which have been partners for as long as 15 years. He said, “Let me congratulate you on your 15 years of foundation. You know for an organization to reach this far means that you have hurdled the humps and are now on steady course. The clients are really important and OLSI exists to serve. Continue loving your clients by serving them well.” The former senator and long-term governor of Laguna also gave a tribute song number to all the guests, serenading everyone and showcasing his talent as member of the former song group – the Three Tenors.  


OLSI recognized its 15 most valuable partners and clients with representatives from partner businesses receiving the plaques of recognition. Also warmly celebrating this evening of partnership and friendship, in addition to the MSL President and CEO, are the Vice Presidents, and GMs, as well as the Group Head for Corporate Communications.

As we expand our business portfolio, please know that OneStop is anything – one-stop, non-stop – anything that needs to be moved and any solutions that you need when it comes to your logistics requirements, we can offer.
