Asian Terminals Inc. (ATI) is expanding its services beyond its gateway ports in Manila and Batangas to sustain its growth over the long-term.
These include off-dock container yards, empty container depots and other ancillary facilities.
ATI executive vice president William Khoury said these projects would “establish greater operational synergies to help the industry cope with current logistics challenges and create growth opportunities.”
In line with this, ATI expects to have additional capacity for empty containers by the middle of the year.
Apart from Manila and Bantangas, ATI also operates an inland clearance depot in Calamba, Laguna.
ATI also operates a two-hectare yard in Sta. Mesa, Manila, which supports the operations of Manila South Harbor. The facility allows more methodical rotation for trucks, letting them drop off empty containers before proceeding to the port to pick-up laden boxes, for a quicker turnaround.
