MHT Service at MCT

The MHT service resumed calls at MCT on August 3, marked by the arrival of the vessel Wan Hai 231, MCT parent firm International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) said in a statement.

A total of 237 containers were handled during the call and majority of the commodities transported included coconut byproducts, falcata lumber, and wastepaper.

The Taiwanese carrier’s weekly service will call MCT every Saturday, connecting Subic, Cebu and Mindanao to the trade hubs of Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Regional Trade

“The return of the MHT service is a significant development in our efforts to strengthen regional trade connectivity and support the growing Mindanao economy,” MCT chief executive officer Aurelio Garcia said.

“We are thrilled to re-establish this crucial link that makes international trade more efficient and accessible to businesses in Mindanao,” Garcia added.

ICTSI said the re-inclusion of MCT to the service rotation was driven by increasing market demand and economic activity in Mindanao, which has seen an 18 % increase in export volume.
