MANILA – A large Japanese shipping company, one of the biggest in the world mulls on opening a full-scale operation at the Subic Bay Freeport.

After making its first port call, Japan’s Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) Line, is yet to make their decisions after the assessment process.

“It all depends on the outcome of the assessment after several port calls. But we hope everything would go well,” NYK Group national sales marketing and outports manager Mary Grace Golez said.

The port call is a part of the ad hoc operation of NYK in Subic which will be a basis in the shipping line’s assessment.

Golez added that the new route (Kaohsiung-Subic-Singapore) will open the Port of Subic to major transshipment ports that will connect to various trade routes worldwide, if the assessment go well.

Among the trade routes which will be opened are in Africa, Europe, North America and the Asean countries.
