MANILA, Philippines – The Maritime Industry Authority (Marina) announced on Tuesday, February 5, it had opened 19 new roll-on-roll-off (RO-RO) missionary routes across the country, while it also urged shipping companies to “propose new links with RO-RO-capable ports.”

RO-RO missionary routes are established between two capable ports in places that have not been serviced by shipping lines because of geographic limitation or the lack of market viability.

Marina said shipping companies that would serve missionary routes will “may enjoy protection of investment for 5 years and 50% discount on the regular fees of all applications and renewal of ship documents, licenses, certificates, and permits.”

The following are the new RO-RO missionary routes:

  • Basco, Batanes – Currimao, Ilocos Norte
  • Batangas City – San Jose, Occidental Mindoro
  • San Juan, Batangas – Abra de Ilog, Occidental Mindoro
  • Real, Quezon – Polillo Island, Quezon
  • Lucena, Quezon – Odiongan, Romblon
  • Lucena, Quezon - Buyabod, Marinduque

  • Lucena, Quezon – Masbate City
  • Maasin, Southern Leyte – Ubay, Bohol
  • San Narciso, Quezon – San Pascual, Masbate
  • Pantao, Albay – San Pascual, Masbate
  • Calbayog City, Samar – Cataingan, Masbate
  • Taytay, Palawan – Cuyo, Palawan
