ASIAN Terminals, Inc (ATI) is bringing in a pair of ship-to-shore cranes for its South Harbor terminal.

“ATI is continuously investing in South Harbor to enable us to provide more reliable and efficient services to our customers,” ATI vice president Ernst Schulze said in a statement. “We are investing now in preparation for greater volumes and even better services in the future.”

Manufactured by Liebherr, the cranes are capable of twin lifts of up to 60 tons. They will be operational next year.

Aside from continuous upgrade in equipment and facilities, ATI has placed emphasis on business processes through information technology.

Since 2008, the operator of the country’s second biggest international gateway has introduced several system innovation, including automated exit gates which have provided port users with easier and more secure port access.

ATI also expanded and automated its truck holding area, entry and exit gates as well as introduced self-service kiosks for truck drivers’ ease of processing.

The automation projects complement the Bureau of Custom’s electronic-to-mobile system which provides a single-window processing for a paperless, queueless and cashless transaction at the port.

Over the last five years, the South Harbor Container Terminal’s annual throughput capacity has grown to 850,000 TEUs with continuous expansion of its container yard.
