ICTSI posts record productivity at Manila International Container Terminal
International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) posted record productivity at its flagship Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) in the Philippines for August and September with equipment operators achieving their monthly targets, the company said in its press release.
The MICT posted an increase in berth productivity of 22 percent and 13 percent in August and September, 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.
For August, the most productive equipment operators were Jerwin Arce, prime mover (PM); Rolando Baysa, reach stacker and side lifter (RS/SL); Romeo Alejandro, rubber tired gantry (RTG); and Jose Dagpin, quay crane (QC); and for September, Arthur Belano (PM); Melchor Peliazar (QC); Archimeyes Concordia (RTG); and Roy Echevarra (RS/SL).
ICTSI subsidiaries regularly send manpower to other terminals within the Group for training, secondment and other assignment overseas. This practice, considering the diversity of ICTSI’s portfolio, allows the Group to share best practices and improve the technical skills of their employees.
As a multinational, having established its presence in six continents, ICTSI understands cultural differences and knows well how to utilize this diversity to achieve government compliance and organizational goals
