In case you didn’t know it yet, FASTCAT has returned to Opol, Misamis Oriental and has been plying the Liloan – Opol route and vice-versa for a few weeks now following the unavailability of the roro ramp at Lipata Port in Surigao City which was severely damaged by Typhoon Odette. The trip takes 9 hours and logistics have been using Opol Port to transport goods to Liloan, Southern Leyte since late December.

It can be recalled that sometime in 2018, FastCat launched trips at Opol Port under a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) but the said Agreement was terminated by the shipping company. See tentative schedule and rates below.

Below are rates for cargo.

It’s still not clear if the route will be maintained once Lipata Port is rehabilitated.
