International Container Terminal Services, inaugurated today (Thursday), Yard 7 of the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) including the commissioning of four new rubber tired gantries (RTG).
Part of MICT’s PhP5 billion expansion project, Yard 7 adds substantial capacity to the terminal now at 2.75 million TEUs from 2.5 million TEUs. This not only addresses the current demand of shipping line clients and the port community for terminal services but also of anticipated growth.
