MANILA, Oct. 5 – The Philippine Ports Authority South Harbor-Port Management Office (SH-PMO) has announced the official opening of the South Harbor Pick-Up/Drop Off (PU/DO) area for all passengers and well-wishers at South Harbor port.

"The provisions of the PU/DO facility will hopefully alleviate the plight of our sea traveling public with the end-goal of ensuring their comfort, convenience, safety and security at the South Harbor port," a statement released by the Office of the Port District Manager Constante Fariñas Jr. said.

The PU/DO area, consisting of 2,272 square meters at the former RV Marzan compound, CY-Boston, South Harbor, will be operated on a per demand basis depending on the schedule of arrivals and departures of vessels. The facility will be secured as a controlled area where passengers will be picked-up or dropped-off.

During the official launch of the facility, PPA General Manager Juan C. Sta. Ana commended the management and staff of the Port District of Manila for carrying on the objectives of PPA to put premium on the comfort, safety, convenience and security of the sea traveling public.

”Our thanks also goes to the management of the Asian Terminals Inc. (ATI), and all others concerned agencies for their continued support in all PPA’s plans and projects,” Sta. Ana said.

South Harbor Port Manager Francisquiel O. Mancile, on the other hand, said the launching activity was participated in by all port officers, shipping companies and the ATI management, the SH cargo handling contractor, who provided the necessary support and assistance for the successful implementation of the project.

“We want to assure our sea traveling public that the Philippine Ports Authority, specifically the South Harbor Port, will not stop on finding ways to provide comfort, convenience and safety to our port users,” Mancile added. (PNA) DCT/scs/PR/utb
