SBITC, Royal Cargo support business expansion in NCL

Subic Bay International Terminal Inc. (SBITC), the fastest growing Philippine subsidiary of global port management ICTSI, is collaborating with Royal Cargo Inc. to provide seamless movement of goods to and from North and Central Luzon (NCL) and help small and medium-sized enterprises expand their operations.



SBITC and Royal Cargo have teamed up to provide the Filipino business community in NCL a world-class and highly efficient 4PL combination delivering superior customer service and attractive pricing.

“The joint efforts of the terminal and Royal Cargo have increased cold-storage options that will improve the quality of refrigerated cargo coming in and out of the country in a fast and efficient manner. This creates opportunities within the value chain to allow local businesses to promote their market further outside of traditional centers like Manila,” said Roberto Locsin, SBITC President.

Now more than ever, SBITC’s New Container Terminals (NCT 1 & 2) would be utilized by NCL local businesses at their utmost advantage, expanding their market operations even outside the Philippines.

“The North Hub will take us one step closer to helping companies across the country achieve growth and expand the new markets such as the Asia-Pacific region. With SBITC, we are now able to provide a direct connectivity to major Intra-Asia and global ports which makes our operations a lot easier,” said Royal Cargo President, Elmer Sarmiento.

Subic’s terminal handling charges are 48% less expensive compared to other terminals despite being the first and only on-dock warehouse in Region 3 that can connect to NCL largest cold-chain facility operated by Royal Cargo.

“Businesses that ship via Royal Cargo can now take advantage of SBITC’s perks such as its one-stop shop service facilities and 10-day free storage period while enjoying the terminal’s world class container handling services, not to mention SBMA’s deferred payment of duties and taxes,” Locsin said.

SBITC also said that completion of construction of the Plaridel Bypass Road Phase 3 in Bulacan will allow for faster delivery service, at the same time reduces travel time going in and out of the North Hub.

“The best thing about this collaboration with Royal Cargo is its sustainable shipping services we can offer to the Filipino entrepreneurs in NCL despite their increasing logistics demands. NCL is a successful, strong business hub in the making and I couldn’t be more proud knowing SBITC is going to be part of that success,” Locsin said.

SBITC, an ICTSI company, is a common-user, multi-purpose terminal, providing on and off-dock marine port cargo and container handling services in Subic Freeport Area. It is one of the leading port operators in the world which leverages on fast, reliable, and cost-efficient system.
