The containerisation of the Philippine inter-island trades has proceeded at a rapid rate over the past four years and despite a current downturn in cargo volumes, is showing no signs of slowing down. Though there has been no outside pressure on the domestic lines to containerise, and indeed there are numerous factors which argue against the move, there is no doubt that considerable advantages have accrued from the conversion of thee former breakbulk trades. It is now estimated that up to 70 per cent of Philippine domestic general cargo could be containerised in the next few years compared with less than 30 per cent at present.
