Monday, April 21, 2014
THE Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) launched Monday its project on quality management system on vessel entrance and clearance which will take effect on April 28, 2014.
PPA Iloilo Port manager Manuel Boholano said the unveiling of the PPA quality policy will enhance the quality of services at the Iloilo Port Complex in Loboc, Barrio Obrero with an efficient cargo vessel entrance and available space clearance for port users.
The Iloilo port complex was considered as a top port in the country for Port Safety on Health Environment and Standards (PSHEAS) in 2013. The port complex is aiming for a quality management system for facilitation of vessel entrance and clearance process.
Boholano said the Loboc port complex is a container yard for cargo vessels and caters to at least three local cargo ships and one foreign vessel unloading their commercial cargo every day.
Iloilo is included in the list of top commercial ports in the country such as Batangas, Zamboanga, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, and General Santos.
