Philippines Shipping Report Q4 2015 - New Report Available

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Sep 13 2015

The congestion issues that plagued the Philippines port sector in 2014 and led to a decrease in throughput at the country's largest container facility the Manila International Container Terminal appear to be resolved, with box growth at the facility up 7.5% y-o-y in Q115. Congestion will however remain a worry for the Philippine port sector over the medium term and only expansion projects will bring a resolution to a problem, which could threaten to derail the country's plans to boost its role in the global shipping sector.

Key Industry Trends

Congestion To Remain An Issue In The Medium Term : MICT's Q115 container throughput growth of 7.5% y-o-y highlights that the problems of congestion in 2014 are being addressed. The threat of disruption to supply chains will however remain in place over the medium term and although plans to expand and add to the nation's ports will aid in tackling the problem. These projects need to be complimented by developments in the country's internal transport networks however, particularly the country's road infrastructure, otherwise congestion will just be pushed further up the supply chains from the ports and the country's importers and exporters will still be negatively impacted.
