The Subic Bay Freeport Zone is the largest container port in the Philippines. This is according to International Container Terminal Services Inc. (ICTSI), a unit led by Enrique Razon Jr.
At present, ICTSI’s Subic Bay International Terminal Corporation (SBITC) operates 2 New Container Terminals (NCT) 1 and 2, which provide cost-effective logistics solutions for foreign and local industries and the burgeoning tourism industry.
“A lot of developments are happening now in Subic that provide immense business opportunities for SME’s, especially in the northern and central Luzon region,”
SBITC president Roberto Locsin said.
“Companies looking to broaden their networks and connect with markets and suppliers anywhere in the country, or the world for that matter.”
The Subic Freeport in Olongapo, Zambales, offers an array of logistics services, storage rooms, and business solutions ranging from small cargo to big-bulk transportation accessible to industrial parks. The container yard can be accessed via the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) which is connected to North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expresway (TPLEX). And, soon, through a planned connector road running through Bataan and other parts of Luzon.
Currently SBITC’s terminals have a combined area of 28 hectares, and can hold upto 600,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) annually.
NCT-1 and NCT-2 have a combined 11.14-hectare container yard with a modern fleet of mobile container handling units for moving and hauling duties.
