LBC Express firmly denies the accusation being circulated online, where a warehouse is depicted with employees supposedly opening cargo boxes & rifling through their contents.
Initial investigations have revealed that the warehouse depicted is owned and operated by a different cargo company and is based in Taiwan, not in Manila. Evidently, the persons in the photo are not LBC employees and likewise the boxes visible are not LBC boxes.
