Batangas International Port

Sta. Clara


The Batangas International Port or locally known as the Batangas Pier, is a seaport in Barangay Santa Clara, Batangas City primarily serving the Calabarzon region of the Philippines. The seaport covers an area of about 150 hectares.It was declared as a national port in 1956. It serves as an alternate port to the Port of Manila. In the 90's it was the second biggest port in the Philippines in terms of revenue, just behind the Port of Manila.Waters across the Verde island passage are very deep and flushed by the current of the South China Sea, resulting in strong marine currents of up to 6 knots, and occasionally choppy waters.TerminalsCargo terminalThe Batangas Container Terminal of the Batangas International Port is operated by listed Asian Terminals Inc. is a major trading port outside. The plan involves increasing the capacity of the port which is projected to accommodate more domestic passengers and international container cargoes.The port of Batangas can improve its attractiveness in providing competitively-priced electricity or energy to investors and in offering higher quality maritime services. Regulations and ease-of-doing-business policies and standard operating procedures can be improved significantly.The size of interior roads connecting the port leads to congestion that renders highways and expressways far less effective. The connection of the port to the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road and South Luzon Expressway without passing through the Batangas City proper would be needed. In addition, the construction of a railway system connecting the Port of Batangas to metro Manila would certainly accelerate its development.
