    of the world will help us to put Melbourne amongst the leading ports of the world, says Christian R. Gonzalez, ICTSI Head of the Asia-Pacific Region.

    Webb Dock East is operated and developed by ICTSI Australian unit, Victoria International Container Terminal Ltd. (VICT), a consortium where ICTSI owns 90 percent of the company. Partner Anglo Ports Pty. Ltd. holds 10 percent.

    Cargotec-Kalmars partnership with VICT marks a milestone in Australias

    port infrastructure development. Australia has shown the way in port automation and Kalmar has played a key role in introducing innovative automation solutions to the countrys leading ports.

    We are extremely pleased to have been selected as the main partner in this landmark project. Our proven solutions and experience in port automation will not only ensure superior operating efficiency but also minimal environmental impact in this highly populated area. We are

    committed to delivering VICT a high-performing system with best of breed automated port equipment, says Olli Isotalo, President of Kalmar.

    The new terminal will introduce fully automated operations from gate to quayside and deliver an estimated capacity of 350,000 TEU in its first phase. When fully developed, the 35.4 hectare terminal will be able to handle up to 1.4 million TEUs annually. Construction of the terminal superstructure and facilities will start late 2014.

    ICTSI launches incentive program for Manila truckers

    With reports from Zinno GudezIn a move to assist truckers affected by the truck ban, International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) launched last 2 July an incentive program for accredited truck driver members of the Alliance of Concerned Truck Owners and Organizations (ACTOO) and Confederation of Truckers Association of the Philippines (CTAP).

    SHIP AHOY

    Maiden voyage of Manila-Subic vessel

    West Ocean-3, a chartered vessel for the Subic Super Shuttle service, had its maiden call at Berth 6 of ICTSIs flagship Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) on 12 August.

    The Manila-Subic shuttle service serves as a common feeder for shipping lines serving locators and shippers in and around northern Luzon, specifically port users of the Subic Bay Freeport. The service was recently launched by PTC Agency & Transport, Inc.

    West Ocean-3 will have a bi-weekly schedule in Manila, shuttling containers to and from the MICT and the New Container Terminal 1 in Subic.

    The incentive program, an initiative of ICTSIs Commercial and Risk Management Department, aims to assist truck drivers who may have been negatively affected by their shortened road travel time as a result of the expanded truck ban in the City of Manila.

    Manila implemented an expanded truck ban in February to help decongest road traffic. The truck ban had negatively impacted the incomes of truck drivers due to the

    trucks limited engagement time in the delivery of cargo. From four trips a day prior to the truck ban, truckers could only do a trip or two. Truck drivers servicing the Port of Manila are contracted and paid by consignees on a per trip basis.

    In a related development, the City of Manila lifted the expanded truck ban on 13 September.

    The following are the winners of the electronic raffle of the incentive program:

  • The higher net income attributable to equity holders for the first semester was mainly due to strong operating income from its three geographic segments and gains recognized on the sale of a non-operating subsidiary in Cebu, Philippines; the termination of its management contract in Kattupalli, India; and the settlement of the insurance claims in Guayaquil, Ecuador of US$13.2 million, US$1.9 million and US$1.5 million, respectively. Excluding the non-recurring items, recurring net income would have been three percent higher at US$85.1 million. Diluted earnings per share for the period was likewise higher by 23 percent at US$0.043, from US$0.035 in 2013.
