International Container Terminal Services, Inc (ICTSI) recently added a new line of port equipment at the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT).

The multi-trailer system (MTS) allows transportation of more containers in a single haul compared to the traditional single-trailer system.

ICTSI now deploys short MTS (two or three trailers in a set) at the MICT Berth 5 for short-distance trips to and from Berth 6.

An MTS is composed of one tractor unit and several trailers. One tractor can handle multiple trailer sets in ship-to-stack mode. An MTS made up of three trailers can transport containers to and from the wharf during vessel operation. In this mode, one tractor can haul a maximum of three 40-foot containers or six twenty-foot equivalent units in a single travel.

MICT received 16 units of the Houcon Holland custom-made trailer which arrived on the ER Freemantle.

Once Berth 6 is inaugurated in June, it will boost MICT capacity by 25% to 2.4 million twenty-foot equivalent units from the current 1.9 million TEUs. ICTSI has injected $150 million into the project.
