International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI), in partnership with the Philippine Department of Transportation (DOTr), recently launched the development of the country’s first container roll-on roll-off barge terminal in Tanza, Cavite.

The Cavite Gateway Terminal (CGT) will be built on a six-hectare property and facilitate off-the-road seaborn transport of containers between ICTSI’s Manila International Container Terminal and Cavite. The project is in line with DOTr’s national transport plan, which aims to utilize nautical highways more efficiently for the movement of goods.

Phase 1, which will cost $30 million (PhP 1.5 billion), features an annual capacity of 115,000 TEUs – 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-bound access to the Cavite market.
