The Cagayan de Oro Port welcomed Portuguese-flagged M/V AS Romina yesterday, March 14, 2022, marking the return of international containerized shipment at the port after 11 years. The ship first arrived at the Port of Subic Bay before calling at the CDO Port, carrying 153 outbound containers and 2,808 inbound containers.
Officials of the Bureau of Customs and Philippine Ports Authority witnessed the arrival of AS Romina which came from China carrying various imported products like buttermilk, dry veneer, frozen products, truck parts, appliances, furniture along with others from various consignees in Northern Mindanao.
CMA-CGM Philippines, Inc. estimates the arrival of 3-4 international containerized shipments in Cagayan de Oro every month but with the inclusion of other shipping lines the Port of Cagayan de Oro hopes the arrivals will increase to spur the revenue generation capability of the port. Such development is expected to boost the business and economic climate in Northern Mindanao.
