Sumary of NorthPort, MICT inter-terminal transfers seen to boost trade:
- The inter-terminal cargo transfers between the Manila North Harbor (NorthPort) and Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) were seen to bring an efficient movement of trade, especially for Coca-Cola Beverages Philippines Inc.ICTSI executive vice president Christian R.
- The shared efficiencies within the ICTSI Group enable both terminals to facilitate seamless cargo movement at the Port of Manila.
- The inter-terminal transfers (ITT) operation between MICT, the Philippines’ premier international port, and the NorthPort, the domestic gateway enables Coca-Cola to conduct its logistics operations more efficiently.
- Coca-Cola’s sea shipments are used to transport directly from the Port of Manila to the beverage company’s plants.
- Now, with the ITT operations in place, shipments are transferred from container vans to trucks bound for Coca-Cola’s manufacturing facilities.
- Shipments from the plants are then sent back through the same mode and, at the Manila port hub, they are processed for domestic shipping to distributors in the Visayas and Mindanao regions.
- In addition to leasing a container freight station (CFS) warehouse, NorthPort also offers Coca-Cola and Container Bridge Philippines, Inc. (CBPI) readily available container storage along with other allied port services.
