Subic Bay International Terminals (SBITC), International Container Terminal Services, Inc.’s (ICTSI) Zambales operation recently welcomed the arrival of a new service that will expand Subic Port’s connectivity to South China and Vietnam.
The South China Vietnam Philippines (SVP) service made its maiden call at Subic Port on June 9 with the arrival of the 1,200-TEU boxship Tanam 175 operated by Emirates Shipping Line (ESL). A new player in the Philippine market, ESL operates the SVP service alongside ASEAN Sea Line (ASL) and Pacific International Line (PIL).
A feeder service with weekly calls to Subic caters to the growing trade needs of South China and Vietnam. It also highlights the free trade agreement between the Philippines and other Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership members, including Vietnam, which faces growing demand for its agricultural and manufacturing exports.
“This service provides a good opportunity for Northern and Central Luzon traders who can take advantage of increased connectivity to markets in Vietnam and China,” said SBITC Terminal Manager Henry Dunga.
The SVP service cycle is as follows: Shekou – Nansha – Xiamen – Manila North – Subic – Xiamen – Shekou – Nansha – Ho Chi Minh – Shekou.
With the addition of SVP service and ESL, SBITC now offers more than a dozen weekly services and major shipping lines.
