INTERNATIONAL Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) recently serviced its one-millionth container for the year at the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT), ICTSI’s flagship operation.

This is the second time MICT hit the one-million mark. The first time was on December 18, 2002. The terminal handled a total of 1,043,464 TEUs in 2002.

This year’s one-millionth container is a 40-foot container from Singapore discharged from Evergreen-Uniglory’s 1,894-TEU Poseidon VII. The MICT handled 698 TEUs, 298 of which were discharged and 400 of which were loaded. Poseidon VII’s next destination is Kaoshiung, Taiwan

“We remain enthusiastic that volumes at the MICT will be sustained, if not, increase every year,” said Francis M. Andrews, ICTSI senior vice president and MICT general manager.

For the first nine months of 2003, MICT handled 823,909 TEUs, up 8% from last year’s 764,791 TEUs.

Wojna Zbigniew is master of the Poseidon VII, while Wajszczyk Jerzy is the vessel’s chief engineer.

Poseidon VII is one of eight Evergreen-Uniglory ships that regularly call MICT in a month. In a week, the Taiwan-based liner averages eight calls at the MICT.
