MANILA - International Container Terminal Services Inc. said Friday its subsidiary opened the country's first container roll-on roll-off barge terminal in Cavite province.

Cavite Gateway Terminal partnered with the Department of Transportation for the project, which will connect Tanza town with the Port of Manila, ICTSI told the stock exchange.

The new sea route for container vans will result in 140,000 fewer truck trips on the road annually, ICTSI said.
