About Us

25-year concessions to operate and develop terminal facility, Lae Tidal Basin with a dedicated berth at Lae old wharf and Motukea (Port Moresby) with an annual potential of 200k TEU´s and with an annual potential of 100k TEU´s respectively.

Established in December 1987 in the Philippines, ICTSI has become a leading operator, innovator and pioneer in its field. After consolidating and strengthening our base and flagship operations at the Manila International Container Terminal in the Philippines, we realized the potential for an independent international terminal operator like ourselves, and launched an aggressive international and domestic expansion program in 1994.





Leadership in global port management is, for ICTSI, a means to a larger end: the vision of building long-term shareholder value. The conditions of the natural environment where we operate may be changing in many, perhaps even permanent ways; the economic and political situation in the different regions may be constantly fluctuating as well. The technologies we deploy and depend on, for much of our operations, are rapidly evolving at a pace considered unprecedented in human history.

Nevertheless, despite such highly variable conditions, our vision remains fixed.

As we continue to pursue optimization of efficiency, leading to an increasingly seamless integration of transport and distribution systems, our direct clients – and, as a consequence, those they also represent and serve – gain a competitive advantage in the world of commerce. In the larger context, the host governments of the countries where we operate these ports gain in economic terms as well.

With our clients and with the host governments of our ports, we have long-term contractual obligations, defined in measurable outputs, in time-bound deliverables.

Then there are our inherent commitments as a business organization: to provide excellent growth opportunities for our employees; to build successful, mutually rewarding businesses with our corporate partners; and to deliver equitable shareholder returns.

Last but certainly not the least, there are the day-to-day, transaction-per-transaction commitments we uphold: to provide superior services marked by efficiency, reliability, professionalism and profitability. It is in fulfilling these on a daily basis that we are ultimately able, over the long term, to meet and even surpass our contractual obligations, and to honor our commitments to employees, partners, and shareholders.

We are singularly focused on our core competency: port management, operations and development.

We are open to expanding opportunities to do this in strategically located ports, in both developed and developing economies, diversifying geographically across the world’s continents. Specifically, we seek to develop, acquire, own and operate common user container terminals in markets with superior growth and profit potential.

We will pursue these, even as we:

  • Maintain and consolidate our leadership position in the markets where we now operate;
  • Constantly improve our current operations, with strategic investments in enhanced organizational capability and human resources, information technology, support structures, and cargo handling equipment; and,
  • Develop our allied businesses.
