THE Batangas Container Terminal (BCT), operated by listed Asian Terminals, Inc (ATI), handled a record 310,000 TEU of international boxes that mainly originated in Calabarzon, including Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon.

The figure represents a 25 per cent increase from 2018's volume, maintaining BCT's strong double-digit cargo growth over the past six years, reported Manila Bulletin.



This also removed 150,000 truck trips from Manila's roads, with consignees opting to ship cargoes through BCT, which is located a few kilometres from industrial hubs and conveniently accessible through major highways.



Before the year-end, BCT surpassed the 300,000 TEU milestone with SITC's Stellar Windsor delivering its 300,000th container on December 16.



ATI's expansion programme for the fast-growing container terminal in early 2019 has delivered higher capacity and greater efficiency for Calabarzon port users.



BCT is equipped with a 600-metre-long berth complemented by four ship-to-shore cranes, eight rubber-tired gantry cranes and other mobile handling equipment along with expanded yards with back-up areas for a throughput capacity of 500,000 TEU annually.
