Sun.Star Pampanga - - NATION! -

MANILA-Yar­du­ti­liza­tion­atthePortofManila (POM) and the Manila In­ter­na­tional Con­tainer Port (MICP) has sig­nif­i­cantly re­duced as re­sult of the con­tin­u­ing ef­forts of the Bureau of Cus­toms to pro­vide fa­cil­i­tated trade en­vi­ron­ment to its stake­hold­ers.

Poli­cies, mea­sures, and col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­forts were done by the BOC to ad­dress the prob­lem of high uti­liza­tion at POM and MICP.

“The con­tin­u­ous de­crease in the level of yard uti­liza­tion at the two ma­jor ports is a clear man­i­fes­ta­tion of the com­mit­ment of the of­fi­cials and per­son­nel of the Bureau to ad­dress trade chal­lenges,” said Com­mis­sioner Rey Leonardo B. Guer­rero.

He added that the ro­bust re­la­tion­ship be­tween the gov­ern­ment and the pri­vate sec­tor, par­tic­u­larly the port op­er­a­tors, Asian Ter­mi­nal Inc. (ATI) and the In­ter­na­tional Con­tainer Ter­mi­nal Ser­vices, Inc. (ICTSI) has helped the Bureau ad­dress the prob­lem on yard uti­liza­tion.

At the Port of Manila, over­stay­ing laden con­tain­ers were shipped out
