The government, through the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA), constructed and developed the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) in line with its program of transforming Manila into a modern port of entry. To promote efficient port services, PPA tapped the participation of the private sector in the management and operation of MICT. In 1988 MICT was awarded to a private firm as part of PPA’s pilot project in the privatization of ports.
Starting 12 June 1988, the management and operation of MICT was contracted to International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI), a publicly-listed company involved in the management, operation and development of port terminals worldwide. The 25 + 25 year Management Contract ensures the provision of efficient port management and service delivery, the speedy development of port facilities and physical improvements through the entry of private capital, and the provision of modern cargo handling equipment and operating systems. In terms of financial advantage, the payment of prescribed fixed and variable fees has benefited the government through higher revenues. The duration of the contract will expire in 2038, the PPA-Port District of Manila/Northern Luzon retains supervisory and regulatory role over MICT.
Since its management of MICT in 1988, ICTSI has more than tripled the terminal’s annual capacity and throughput, expanded its cargo handling fleet into the largest and mostmodern in the country today, and converted a manual control system to an integrated real-time IT terminal control system. At present, MICT is the country’s premier containerport with an annual capacity of approximately 1.9 million TEUs. Its container handling services and productivity levels are at par with international standards. Around 65% ofthe foreign container traffic passing through Manila are being handled at the MICT. Starting 1998, PPA allowed ICTSI to handle bulk and non-containerized cargoes at the MICT.
The approval of a Supplemental Contract on Domestic Operation allowed the service of domestic containerized cargoes at the MICT since April 2007. The service proved beneficial to exporters enjoying cost and time savings through the reduction of clearance and documentation requirements. The use of shore cranes in the discharging and loading operation of domestic vessels resulted to shorter turn-around-time and faster movement of cargoes to international vessels..
The MICT is one of the three ports in the Port of Manila, the core of the Philippine port system. It lies between the North Harbor and South Harbor, protruding westward into the Manila bay, northside of the mouth of the Pasig River, the city’s main waterway.
A dedicated container terminal, the MICT mainly handles international containerized cargo. The MICT today is the Philippines' largest international container terminal in terms of volume and capacity. Guaranteed efficiencies make it the most efficient in the country, at par with the best terminals in the world. Moreover, seamlessly integrated operational and administrative systems make it the most modern and efficient terminal in the Philippines.
