ICTSI to build a container ro/ro terminal in Manila Bay

  Apr 26--INTERNATIONAL Container Terminal Services Inc (ICTSI) with the Philippine Department of Transportation (DoT) will develop a six-hectare container roll-on roll-off barge terminal at Tanza, Cavite.

  The Cavite Gateway Terminal (CGT) located in the southern part of Manila Bay will facilitate off-the-road sea borne transport of containers between ICTSI's Manila International Container Terminal and Cavite, reported the American Journal of Transportation.

  The project is in line with DoT's national transport plan, which aims to utilise nautical highways more efficiently for the movement of goods. The US$30 million (PhP1.5 billion) Phase 1 of the development will have an annual handling capacity of 115,000 TEU, equivalent to 140,000 fewer truck trips on city roads each year.

  The terminal will be integrated with other major Luzon port facilities for more cost-effective and time-effective access to the Cavite market.
