About Fifth Express


  • Plant-based materials made of corn
  • Cassava

Eco Benefits of the Materials

  • The plant-based mailers are certified compostable.
  • They will break down in 6 months without leaving toxic residues in the environment.(On the other hand, standard plastic mailers may take up to 10 years or more).
  • Cassava bags are 100% biodegradable. They dissolve in water, degrade in landfill, and decompose. They are non-toxic and contain no palm oil.


  • The Fifth Express delivers parcels to clients in compostable packaging instead of plastic.
  • The company uses e-waybill to lessen the use of paper.
  • The company delivers mailers in advance for a minimum order quantity to lessen the carbon footprints emitted by delivering the mailers from time to time.

Sustainability Programs

  • Fifth Express partnered with Haribon Foundation in 2021 by donating a portion of its sales to support the foundation’s environmental projects.

  • Fifth Express prides itself on supporting the eco-warriors in the business industry by giving special discounts to entities with the same advocacy.


Fifth Express is driven by the desire to offer clients the best experience in delivery combined with a strong advocacy for sustainability. On top of fast deliveries, convenient transactions, and reliable services, Fifth Express also contributes to the environment by using compostable, plant-based packaging to deliver their parcels.
