ICTSI takes four new yard cranes at Manila container terminal

ICTSI takes four new yard cranes at Manila container terminal
Global port operator International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) has taken delivery of four new rubber tired gantry cranes (RTGs) for its flagship Manila International Container Terminal (MICT).

The RTGs are part of ICTSI’s large port equipment order from Cargotec’s Kalmar.

They also form part of the MICT’s port equipment upgrading to complement and sustain the multi-million dollar infrastructure development project at the terminal, which includes the expansion of the container yard.

In 1988, ICTSI won the 25+25 years concession to operate the MICT in an international tender.

Since ICTSI’s takeover, MICT has increased its annual capacity fivefold, expanded its container handling fleet to become the largest and most modern container terminal in the Philippines.
