SBITC services largest ship to call at Subic port
The Singaporean vessel is part of American President Line’s (APL) Manila Express Service (MNX), which features weekly direct calls to Subic Bay and Manila’s North and South Port. The service starts from Kaohsiung, Taiwan then heads to Subic Bay and Manila in the Philippines, before returning to Kaohsiung.
The service also connects the Philippines to Japan through Kaohsiung via APL’s Japan – Thailand – Vietnam (JTV) and Japan – Thailand 2 (JT2) services.
With a length overall of 294.11 meters and capacity of 4,500 TEUs, APL Tourmaline replaces the 259.80-meter long, 4,330-TEU capacity APL Bahrain as the largest vessel to be serviced by SBITC. APL Bahrain made its maiden call to the Port of Subic in 2010.
The vessel highlights the port’s capability to handle large ships and increased container traffic as more businesses start using Subic for its logistical advantages.
SBITC is a subsidiary of International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI). ICTSI is in the business of port operations, management and development. ICTSI’s portfolio of terminals and projects spans developed and emerging market economies in the Asia Pacific, the Americas, Europe and the Middle East, and Africa, and has its flagship operation at the Manila International Container Terminal in Manila’s South Harbor.
