International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) has seen record productivity at its flagship Manila terminal in the Philippines for August and September.

The Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) posted an increase in berth productivity of 22 percent and 13 percent for the two months, respectively.

“With terminal manpower delivering optimal performance, ICTSI further improved its existing employee motivation and care program to include citations for its most productive equipment operators,” ICTSI said.

“Management acknowledges the excellent work our prime mover, quay crane, rubber tired gantry, and stacker operators have put in to reach high berth productivity. As early as 2000, we have been rewarding our operators and, as a result, ICTSI enjoys a very low turnover rate,” Jay Valdez, MICT operations director, informed.

In 1988, ICTSI won the 25 plus 25 years concession to operate the Manila terminal in an international tender. Since then, MICT has increased its annual capacity five-fold, expanded its container handling fleet and switched from a manual control system to an integrated real-time IT terminal control system.

Earlier in October an analysis conducted by International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) allegedly found an emerging pattern of labour rights violations at ICTSI. The ITF claimed that the report shows that labour issues at ICTSI terminals “can be found throughout ICTSI’s global network”.

World Maritime News contacted ICTSI for comment on the matter, however, the terminal operator is yet to reply.
