International Container Terminal Services, Inc.

Company Background

Controlled by Filipino-Spanish businessman Enrique K. Razon, International Container Terminal Services is the Philippines' largest port operator. By the end of 2013, ICTSI was involved in 28 terminal concessions and port development projects in 20 countries. Specifically, these were 23 terminals in seven key ports in the Philippines, two in Indonesia and one each in Brazil, Brunei, China, Croatia, Ecuador, Georgia, Honduras, India, Japan, Madagascar, Mexico, Pakistan, Poland and the U.S.

In 2013, the company had port development projects in Colombia and Argentina; it had also secured three contracts to develop, manage and operate ports in Nigeria, Congo and another one in the Southern Philippine province of Davao. Company officials have said ICTSI would continue to scout projects abroad, especially in emerging markets like the Philippines.

The group prefers managing midsize ports, with total annual throughputs ranging from 50,000 to 2.5 million 20-foot equivalent units (TEUs). Razon, who started working in ports at the age of 18, inherited the business from his father, Enrique Razon Sr. The younger Razon also now controls Bloomberry Resorts, which operates a big casino near Manila Bay.
