ICTSI flagship terminal in Manila handles 50 millionth TEU


Manila International Container Terminal (MICT), the flagship terminal of International Container Terminal Service, Inc. (ICTSI), this week celebrated the milestone of handling its 50 millionth twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU).

MICT unloaded the landmark container from MV Seabreeze, operated by Ocean Network Express (ONE). The shipment is owned by HRD Singapore PTE Ltd.

ICTSI says that by leveraging cutting-edge technology, MICT has been at the forefront of innovation within the Philippine port industry since starting operations at the Port of Manila in 1988. Meanwhile, the group itself has grown into what is now the world’s largest independent terminal operator with terminals in 19 countries across six continents, employing more than 11,000 people.
