The choice of where to locate the Philcement Terminal and Port Facility became a reality after inspecting the site in the Freeport Area of Bataan (FAB) in Mariveles.
Aside from the efficient and supportive assistance provided by the BEPZ administration and staff, Philcement officials were impressed by the cleanliness, safety and security of the area.
Mariveles is just 163 km. away from Manila traveling through the paved roads of the North Luzon Expressway and SCTEX, and the wide 6-lane Bataan Provincial Highway.
The Mariveles Port is strategically linked to these main roadways, which gives Philcement quick and easy access to the North and Central Luzon areas.
The Philcement Terminal and Port Facility has its own deep water harbor, allowing large vessels to dock, do simultaneous loading and unloading of smaller vessels and even ship-side loading.
This flexibility augurs well for faster unloading and turn-around of vessels, as well as quicker deployment from Mariveles straight to other destinations.
