Chapter 1 Introduction
Our unique geography as an archipelagic nation should necessitate us to concede the benefits and challenges that come with being a nation surrounded and convey together by the water. The Philippines impends on seaports much more than countries with huge constant landmass. With 7,107 islands and a land area of more than 300,000 square kilometers, the Philippines lies at the heart of the globe.

If you look at the world map, it is not just a regular location, but in essence, a tactical region that has accessibility to more than half of the worlds population . Since a high percentage of domestic and international interchange and traverse is by sea, the effectiveness of maritime transportation has become increasingly necessary to national competitiveness. It is a vast market for the countrys economic production if we unravel and uncover it and use this range to our advantage in the economy of distance and time.

1.1 Background of the Study

Maritime conveyance is the capital support of world-wide trade, with its capacity to move abundant quantities of load over extended distances. The notion of marine transportation rests on two major elements: ports and shipping networks. Ports are locations where cargo and passengers can be transhipped to and from maritime modes. Shipping networks are regular itineraries that draw arcs on the Earths water surface as intercontinental maritime transference tries to maintain the immense circumference distance.


There is a long history of the necessity of the oceans for mercantile navigation , a procedure associated to the establishment of world-wide trade, especially with the founding and expansion of civilizations and empires. Maritime conveyance is a commercial activity demanding a comprehensive arrangement of modes and infrastructures and is designed by the marine geography of the Earth, principally the configuration of oceans, coasts, seas, lakes, and rivers. Where possible, dredging and the construction of canals, channels, and locks have been attempted to lessen distances, to facilitate maritime transmission, and to reform access to port. This has diminished the discontinuity imposed by geography on world-wide trade.

Our coastline is almost double of that of the US, thus, making it beneficial not only for global protection, but also for maritime-business projection. The record of the Philippine Maritime History is, in a sense, the story of the country itself.

Before the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century, the islands were sparingly inhabited with well-established trading networks between the islands and wider regional networks in Southeast Asia. In the mid-1500s, an expedition arrived in the Philippines to explore of the legendary Spice Island. From the late 18th century social and economic structures in the Philippines were transformed. The Philippines, along with the rest of Southeast Asia, was drawn into the world trading system.


By the 19th century AngloAmerican merchant houses dominated the blossom exportation economy. The Philippines became a major maker of cash crops for international traffic with the volume of international trade multiplying fifteen times between 1825 and 1875. In the 1890s, an increasing nationalist movement in the Philippines resulted in a rebellion in 1896 against Spanish government. They destroyed a Spanish fleet in Manila Bay and, support by Filipino insurgents under their commander Aguinaldo, they rapidly conquered the islands.

1.2 Statement of the Problem

The quality of port infrastructure rank for the Philippines in the WEF Global Competitive Report is the lowest among the ASEAN. As an archipelago with a very abundant number of ports, the Philippines faces a challenge to undertake reforms and huge investments to modernize as many ports as possible.

The volume of international container shipments in the Philippines is small compared to those in East Asias export economies.


Improvement of maritime safety is an important issue given the high loss of

life from negligence of ship owners and government agencies, terrorism, and weather.

Philippine ports suffer from a structural regulatory problem. The DOTC has restricted power over Special Economic Zone (SEZ).

Also, there is no consistent dispensation of RORO ports; some are under PPA, while others are under LGUs, and fees are not uniform.

The high charge of domestic maritime transportation has long been disputed,
while the vast possibility for tourism both domestic and international is highly influenced by the quality of seaports as well as airports.

1.3 Project Goals & Objectives

To provide an international port that will meet the demands of the global maritime industry and improved inter-modal connectivity that has extensive connectivity with land and water transport that will generate new economic and social benefits for the country.


To redevelop and bring change through technological advancements in the traditional functions of seaports such as the traffic, merchant and industrial functions

To provide a connection between land and water transportation for the ease of accessibility of the users

To provide facilities that will ensure the safety and security for seagoing vessels entering, operation in and leaving the seaport

1.4 Significance of the Project

The project raises a multitude of solutions to the problem concerning inadequate volume of trade, whole system of fees, high cost of transport and public awareness. The Philippines is well-positioned to become a regional distribution center for goods destined for global trade. It has relative benefit for storage and distribution of goods to separate parts of the world.

The project promotes the effectiveness of marine conveyance through domestic and international commerce and is critical to competitiveness. Transport costs in navigation are high and are one of the considerations for the countrys low competitiveness.


Not only would it elevate our own economic advantage, it would also convey new opportunities for the citizens and non-citizens to liberate investments in our country. This would also lengthen the relationships the nation has with other countries that would be mutually beneficial.

The project promotes the significance of marine conveyance for our agriculture. Key domestic and international ports need bulk and break-bulk facilities. If the government priority for agriculture and food security is serious, there is need for more bulk ports. If mining is to take off, there must be bulk terminals. The countrys requirements for coal, LNG and the like also call for bulk port handling facilities. Transport system issues highlight the relationship between infrastructure and supply line.

1.5 Project Scope & Limitation

The Scope of the project is to promote the importance of the Port and Maritime Transportation through redeveloping the Seaport focusing on improvement of the economy of Cebu. The project only wishes to focus on developing certain key issues through specific solution based into two major parts; Cebu International Port and Cebu Baseport Domestic Zone.


1.5.1 Cebu International Port and Cargo

All needed infrastructure including container terminals, cranes, truck marshalling areas, and weighing scales, which are not present at many ports and to include facilities to accommodate bulk and break bulk cargoes.

1.5.2 Cebu Baseport Domestic Zone pure containerized lift-on/lift-off (LOLO) shipping for long-haul routes between main ports large Roll-on/Roll-Off (RORO) ferries with passengers on long-haul routes bulk (dry and wet), break bulk, and small container shipping

1.5.3 Limitations

Major ports should have modern passenger terminals with connected land transportation terminals such as bus. Jeepney, and cab terminals but the project does not wish to dwell much further on this part. There is a given structure for this area to show the connection of land and water transport but not as detailed compared to others.

1.6 Definition of Terms

1. Break Bulk cargo - is a term that can be describe as goods that must be loaded individually, and not in intermodal containers nor in bulk as with oil or grain. Break bulk cargo is transported in bags, boxes, crates, drums, or barrels. Unit loads of items secured to a pallet or skid are also used.

2. Marshalling areas it is a location in the vicinity of a reception terminal orprepositioned equipment storage site where arriving unit personnel, equipment, materiel, and accompanying supplies are reassembled, returned to the control of the unit commander, and prepared for onward movement.

3. Berth term used in ports and harbors for a designated location where a vessel may be moored, usually for the purposes of loading and unloading. Berths are designated by the management of a facility.

4. Anchorage place for the privilege of anchoring to secure or stabilize the ship 5. Cargo-Handling - the activity of moving goods on and off ships, planes, trucks, etc. 6. Pilotage - is the use of fixed visual reference on the ground or sea by means of sight or radar to guide oneself to a destination, sometimes with the help of a map or nautical chart. People use pilotage for activities such as guiding vessels and aircraft, hiking and scuba diving. 7. Bunkering - The act or process of supplying a ship with fuel. 8. Porterage - the work of carrying supplies, goods, etc, done by porters

11 | P a g e

9. Roll-On/Rolf-Off (RORO) ships are vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo, such as automobiles, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars, that are driven on and off the ship on their own wheels.

10. Lift-on/Lift-off (LOLO) Contrast to RORO, it is a containerized cargo ship which is loaded and offloaded by a port's cranes and derricks

11. World Economic Forum (WEF) is an independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas

Chapter 2 Review of Related Literature

2.1 BOOKS 2.1.1 Information for the Background of the Study Rediscovery in Southern Cebu By Ramon Echevarri Pages 17-33 Historical Perspectives; 34-40, 49-57 Archaeological Record; 101-109 New Perspectives Local Book

The general topic of this book is about the rediscovery of the main economy of the whole province even before the arrival of the Spaniards. The concern of the writer is why cotton-growing and weaving that was once the major industry of Cebu eventually died out following the Spanish Conquest. Throughout the book, he gathered a lot of different reports, archaeological records, and documents from different people such as Priests, Chinese Traders, and Spanish missionaries to support his hypothesis as to why the major industry died out.

The relationship of this book to the researchers topic gives him a better understanding about the provinces development of trade from the Pre-Spanish period up to the modern era. It has a detailed process of trading system of the province with the other

14 | P a g e

islands as wells as the other countries nearby. The province of Cebu had commercial relations with foreign lands even before the Spaniards have arrived.

With the writers gathered information, it has been stated that not only the cotton weaving industry has been exported for local and overseas trade from the province but also different potteries. By the year 1860, native weaving industry declined rapidly and corn crops has been introduced by the Spaniards. At the end book, the writer expressed his thought that Cebu still has the ability to revive its old trading industry. By reviving the old trading industry and agriculture of Cebu, it would create a new personality for the place and open new opportunities for the people of the place. Cebu: Prime Business and Tourism Haven in the South By Amada T. Valino Pages 18-38, 45, 69-74, 77-88 Local Book

The general topic of this book is all about the Business and Tourism Industry of the said province. It discusses the capacity and opportunity of Cebu in terms of Trade Industry. It has a lot of technical information such as lot size of different cities that forms the province, its population and such. Of course, the book has said a lot about the tourism of Cebu through discussing each of the historical landmarks of the province.

15 | P a g e

In relation to researchers study, the book discussed a lot about the provinces transportation which includes a detailed observation about the port and its importance in their economy. It has a lot of technical information regarding exports and investments from different companies. It is stated that Cebu leads in both traditional and non-traditional exports and has the highest economic growth in the Philippines. Cebu exports comprise more than 95% of the total exports of Central Visayas.

In the last three decades, Cebu has led the country in economic growth, with rates averaging 20% above the national figures. It has its own International Seaport, the busiest outside Manila, with direct ports of call to Asian centers Hong Kong and Singapore. As the countrys most popular tourist destination, the International Airport in Mactan handles 42 direct flights a week from Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Qatar, Taiwan, and Malaysia. Long marketing itself abroad as an island in the Pacific, Cebu has managed to institute itself from the political storms occasionally distracting Imperial Manila.

Throughout the book, there are lot of technical information being given regarding trade industry of the province as well as comprehensive explanation of tourist attractions per city. It highlights the Cebus competence through promoting investments in the province. The writer believes that Cebu Island Republic is the culture of boom, stating that even before

16 | P a g e

the arrival of the Spaniards; Cebus market has been established with merchants from Thailand, China and East Indies. A History of Early Southeast Asia: Maritime Trade and Societal Development By Kenneth R. Hall Pages 8-47, 59-82, 145-180 Foreign Book

This comprehensive history provides a new interpretation of Southeast Asia when major social and economic developments foundational to modern societies took place on the Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam between Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines. The book explores the dynamic era in detail through different accounts and reports from the past in each said countries. It is has a notable explanation for internal adaptations of nearby cultures through growing of external contacts. In the process, formerly local civilizations became major participants in period's international trade networks.

Incorporating the latest archaeological evidence and international scholarship, the writer enlarges upon prior histories of early Southeast Asia. In relation to researchers study, it is an extension of the study of the established commercial industry before the Spanish Era, thus giving the researcher an idea what are the nearby countries that always been said but never been discussed in other books regarding trade industry of Cebu.

17 | P a g e

The book was written for a wide audience of non-specialists, and it is an essential reading material for all of those interested in Southeast Asian Maritime Industry. It also has shown how hierarchical states have been formed from hunter-gatherer to agricultural communities until they become part of the global trade networks. It has being discussed how maritime trade improved the economic stand of each countries, giving the researcher a lot of background information for the study. Maritime Economics Second Edition Martin Stopford Foreign Book

This book starts with some thoughts on the return on capital in shipping and the prediction of shipping cycles. It also discusses the costs and revenues of operating merchant ships. Costs are divided into voyage costs and operating costs. Capital costs are also discussed and the final section focuses on techniques for cash flow analysis.

In relation to my research this gives a comprehensive explanation about the Maritime Economics which affects one of my project objectives for the research. It gave a review about Trade Development Cycle and the relationship between sea trade and economic development. It also discussed the organization of the liner system, the characteristics of demand and the

18 | P a g e

way the liner business deals with the complex economic framework to justify the significance of the researchers project.

The aim of this book is to focus on the way designs have evolved to meet technical and economic objectives. The book ends at the three objectives of ship design, efficient cargo containment, operational efficiency, and cost. There follows a discussion of each of the main categories of ship design: liner vessels, liquid bulk, dry bulk, specialist bulk, service vessels.

2.1.2 Information about the Seaport Infrastructure Analytical Models for RORO and LOLO Terminals in Multipurposes Port F Russo & Ag Cartisano Maritime Engineering and Ports. Foreign Book

The authors wrote about the freight transport which plays an important role in the transport system, as it is a fundamental element for the economic development of an area and a country in general. It has been discussed that the ports are organized as freight interchange centers. It has an introduction to shipping market economics. It aims to explain how the shipping market is organized and to answer some basic questions about how it works.

19 | P a g e

Throughout the book, the authors explained comprehensively the elements that form an integrated freight transport system, from multimodal to complex monomodal, intermodal and also piggy- back transport. The book support an overview of the market covering the transport system, the demand for sea transport, the merchant fleet, how transport is provided, the role of ports, shipping company organization and political influences.

In relation to the researchers study, the book gives an elaborate explanation as to the effect of the performance of the main hubs of the port depending on the integrated transport system such as total reduction in costs, planning phase, cost and performance, and such. Shipping market cycles dominate the industrys economic thinking. The author gave a discussion of shipping risk leads on to a review of how, over the last century, experts have defined the shipping cycle. It took a more detailed look at the economic model of the shipping market which underlies the cyclical nature of the business. The Development of a Breakwater Design at Caleta La Mission Port, Argentine Maohammad & OJ Jensen Foreign Book

The researchers plan stated throughout the book is to construct new marine infrastructure on the east coast of Tierra del Fuego, to meet the future cargo transport needs 20 | P a g e

as well as for supporting industrial development in the province having offshore natural gas resources. The researchers thought of using a new generation of concrete armouring units with only a handful of breakwaters built.

Though it has also been said that there are however still many possibilities for the use of the specific type of concrete said in the book in design to be covered and verified by physical modelling. This work deals with design of the Caleta La Mision Breakwater, Argentina, and presents the conclusions from the design process supported by extensive physical model testing in both wave flume and basin for verification and optimisation.

In relation with the study, the research about the new type of concrete for the use of Seaport Infrastructure could be use as the main material of choice for the project. A handful of ideas were presented to the book about other possible uses of the material. There is a physical dimension to shipping economics, so we must be aware of the geography of the world in which trade takes place. Todays trading world has evolved over many centuries and history demonstrates that the regional centre of sea trade is constantly on the move.

21 | P a g e Life Cycle Feasibility of a New Type of Container Handling System M.W. Ludema Foreign Book

The book contains comprehensive information about container handling at container terminals with the old and new types of container handling systems, like straddle carriers or Automated Guided Vehicles and Automatic Stacking Cranes. It has a lot comparison with different container handling system and shows the outcome of each type.

This study investigates the economic feasibility of the new system by comparing it with the other two by means of a cost effectiveness analysis over a 20 year period. It was found that the new system is a feasible alternative, so the development of this system should be continued. There is a physical dimension to shipping economics, so we must be aware of the geography of the world in which trade takes place. Todays trading world has evolved over many centuries and history demonstrates that the regional centre of sea trade is constantly on the move.

In relation to the topic, one of the project objectives of the project is to improve the logistic of the Maritime Industry through Seaport Infrastructure thus, giving the researcher an idea as to how container handling system affects the logistics of the trade and industry. Containerization of liner services is one of the great commercial innovations of the twentieth century. Faster transport and lower costs have made it possible for businesses to source 22 | P a g e

materials and market their products almost anywhere in the world. This book discusses the organization of the liner system, the characteristics of demand and the way the liner business deals with the complex economic framework within which it operates. Port Development: A Handbook for Planners for Developing Countries Unctad Foreign Paper

The book specifically stated the need for national ports plan. Throughout the study, technological improvement has been the subject of the research because of the essential plan of the transportation system for developing countries. It has also been discussed that the national ports authority should mandate different policy to create order in the system.

In relation to the study, the book guides planners of seaport infrastructures to create a broad national strategy to create greater economic impact. It stated different kinds of planning for the system from short-term improvement strategies to long-term improvement strategies and maintaining the capacity of the structure.

In this book suggests that the transport industry has been one of the prime forces responsible for shifting the world from an essentially national system to the global economy that exists today. The progression from a world of isolated communities to an integrated 23 | P a g e

global community was made possible by shipping and sea trade, but this has been a two-way exchange which has, in turn, forced major adjustment on the maritime industry itself. This book proved to be a profound insight. Economic development has gone hand in hand with sea trade. Port Development Policy Takeuchi Yoshio Foreign Book

The book is about recognition of the maritime sector and it critical role in the development of regional, national and global economies. This is in view of the growth-pole potentials of ports and ancillary industries. It gave comparisons of different countries with leading global power for its implications for public policy formulation and implementation.

This book attempts a comparison of the evolution and implementation of policies relating to the development of ports, the mercantile marine and port industries in both countries. Focusing on the roles of the government and the private sector, it locates the discussion in a wider, global comparative context.

In relation to the research, this book gives comprehensive information about the development of the policies of different countries in terms of the Seaport Infrastructures and Maritime Industry which could be applied for the researchers project. The task in this book

24 | P a g e

is to understand the economics of the industry. In carrying out the economic analysis it did not neglect the fact that the shipping market is a group of peopleshipowners, brokers, shipbuilders and bankerswho together carry out each year the Herculean task of transporting cargo by sea and who may see shipping as much more than just a business. A Practical Guide for a Sustainable Seaport The World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure PIANC 2010 Foreign Book

The author tries to enlighten us about the different issues regarding Seaports. Increasing environmental awareness create new challenges for the development of ports. In addition, climate change calls for adaptation measures that aim at minimizing impacts of e.g. rising sea levels and increased flood water heights but safeguard accessibility of ports and waterways and also safeguard future sustainability for the social and natural environmental conditions.

Throughout the book it explains International and national legislation for new ports or extensions of existing ports are incorporating these said issues. New Seaports are increasingly based on strict regulations aiming at creating designs with minimized environmental impact and sustainable operations in the long-term.

25 | P a g e

In relation to the researchers study, it focuses mainly on Green Port with a comprehensive explanation of what it is and how it related to its stakeholders through the collection of existing views and global trade and trends. It explained why Green Ports are necessary and how to adopt a green ports philosophy.

More importantly, it includes the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility and portreconstruction or transformation phases and relevant aspects of port operations in the scope.

2.2 ARTICLES 2.2.1 Information for the Problem and Significance of the Project Arangkada Philippines 2010: A Business Perspective Infrastructure: Seaports Local Advocacy Paper Joint Foreign Chambers

The paper has reports and documents regarding the issues of Philippines Seaport situation. Mainly, the paper stated the problems about volume of international container shipments and connection of the country with the other nearby countries . In relation to the study, the gathered documents gave an insight about the ranking of Philippine Seaports.

26 | P a g e

Shipping depends on trade, so we must understand why countries trade and why trading patterns change.

This paper explains the impact of regulation on shipping economics. It identifies three key regulatory institutions, the classification societies, the flag states and the coastal states. Each plays a part in making the rules which govern the economic activities of ship owners. The classification societies, through the authority of the class certificate, supervise the technical safety of the merchant ships. The paper ends with some thoughts on the return on capital in shipping and the prediction of shipping cycles. Infrastructure & Logistics: Deficient but Critically Needed CROSSROADS (Toward Philippine Economic and Social Progress) By Gerardo P. Sicat (The Philippine Star) March 20, 2013 Local Paper

The author tries to enlighten the readers about different problems of the Philippines Maritime Industry as well as the governments body to administrate the rules and policies over the infrastructures. He stated as well, the economical statistic standing of the country compared to other ASEAN country and that, the country placed last in ranking.

27 | P a g e

Throughout the article it was stated the countries that invest in infrastructure sufficiently improve the flow of goods and services between users and suppliers. Logistics was thoroughly explained and highlighted the connection between domestic and international commerce.

In relation to the researchers study, this article explained that issues that the country has been experiencing for the past decades regarding maritime commerce. The article has showed the importance of Seaport Infrastructure to a countries economic growth. Thus, it shows the significance of the researchers project to the country.

2.2.2 Information for the Background of the Study An Early Age of Commerce in Southeast Asia 900 1300 CE Geoff Wade June 2009 Journal of Southeast Asian Studies Foreign Paper

The author suggests that the age of commerce had its roots in changes which occurred during the fifteenth century. The commercial boom and the emergence of port cities as hubs of commerce, spurred the political, social and economic changes which marked the Age of Commerce in the region, extending from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century. 28 | P a g e

The points to changes in the spice and aromatic wood trade, a trade boom beginning sometime around 1400 and new systems of cash-cropping across the archipelago. With the booming maritime trade came the emergence of the Southeast Asian increased commercialisation and the growth of port cities.

In relation to the research topic, the article pointed out the effects of commerce within the cities. It also has the background information about Southeast Asian Maritime History to strengthen the credibility of the research.

2.3 WEBSITE 2.3.1 Information for Demographics Cebu Port Authority Local Government Owned Website

A port authority might be authorized to exercise licensing and regulatory functions with respect to marine and port services and facilities. Regulation of marine activities is related to the harbourmasters function, as well as to the transport of dangerous goods and protection of the environment such as rules pertaining to discharge of ship wastes into port

29 | P a g e

waters, tank cleaning, and the use of port reception facilities. The licensing power of the port authority with respect to port services can be extensive because it usually has the legal power to revoke licenses for violations without administrative appeal.

The law may authorize the issuance of public licenses to operate terminals . Because public licenses require extensive oversight by the port authority and reporting by the licensee, their utility should be balanced against the bureaucratic burden for the port authority and the port licensees. The same goals may be better achieved through concession or leasehold contracts, as these are more flexible for both parties. However, in the event of inclusion of a public license authority in a ports law, rules should be set for transfer, renewal, and cancellation of a license. Unlike for a concession or lease, where breaches are matters of contract and law, license breaches fall under administrative (or even criminal) processes for their resolution. The website has statistical reports on Ports performance in each Port District Office of the province of Cebu. Through the annual reports, biddings, port tariff, and port statistics, the researcher has the information needed with the access of the internet that could be use to strengthen the credibility of the study.

30 | P a g e Philippine Ports Authority Local Government Owned Website

The Philippine Ports Authority, in Filipino, Pangasiwaan ng mga Daungan ng Pilipinas, abbreviated PPA, is a government-owned corporation under the Department of Transportation and Communications as an attached agency. It is responsible for financing, management and operations of public ports throughout the Philippines, except for the port of Cebu, which is under the Cebu Ports Authority.

The range of permitted port authority activity may also be variously extended to include airport, bridges, tunnels, commuter rail systems, inland river or shallow draft terminals, industrial parks, foreign-trade zones, world trade centers, terminal or shoreline railroads, shipyards, commercial vessels, dredges, marinas and other public recreational facilities. Certain navigation districts are empowered to levy taxes. Many are given police powers, at least to the extent of maintaining security and enforcing board approved ordinances on properties owned by the port authorities. A few also exercise regulatory powers, such as the licensing of stevedores, and enforcement of local or state environmental and land-use regulation, and the management of submerged or tidal lands within the ports jurisdiction. The law may authorize the issuance of public licenses to operate terminals . Because public licenses require extensive oversight by the port authority and reporting by the licensee, 31 | P a g e

their utility should be balanced against the bureaucratic burden for the port authority and the port licensees. The same goals may be better achieved through concession or leasehold contracts, as these are more flexible for both parties. However, in the event of inclusion of a public license authority in a ports law, rules should be set for transfer, renewal, and cancellation of a license. Unlike for a concession or lease, where breaches are matters of contract and law, license breaches fall under administrative or even criminal processes for their resolution.

Marine management tasks form part of either a national maritime administration or of a public port authority. Marine management, which is essentially a public safety task, should be performed separately from a corporatized or privatized port authority to prevent a conflicting mix of commercial and safety objectives. A ports law should make that separation of objectives clear. Because of overriding safety concerns, which may run counter to the profit-making objectives inherent under this type of port authority, combining marine management tasks with managing a corporatized or privatized port may not be the best option for managing navigational port safety.

The website has statistical reports on Ports performance in each Port District Office of the whole Philippines. Through the annual reports, biddings, port tariff, and port statistics, the researcher has the information needed with the access of the internet that could be use to strengthen the credibility of the study.

The site illustrates the importance of a global awareness; the health and wealth of nations was formed by individuals who migrated, seeking refuge and opportunity. It also illustrates the importance of maintaining all facets of our planet be it flora or fauna for the sake of future generations.

In relation with the study, the website provides comprehensive information about the world maritime history. The credibility of this website started as a historical research paper and became an organizational website that is supported by the visitors who value the information given by the said website. Philippine Statistics Authority Local Government Owned Website

Based on the 2010 Census of Population and Housing (CPH), Cebu City, a highly urbanized city in the province of Cebu, posted a total population of 866,171 persons as of 33 | P a g e

May 1, 2010. This is larger by 147,350 persons compared to its total population of 718,821 persons counted in the 2000 CPH. The increase in the population count from 2000 to 2010 translated to an average annual population growth rate (PGR) of 1.88 percent. This is higher than the 1.65 percent annual PGR of the city between the census years 1990 and 2000.

If the average annual PGR recorded at 1.88 percent during the period 2000 to 2010 continues, the population of Cebu City would double in 37 years. In 1970, the population of Cebu City was only 347,116 persons. This population size is two fifths of the population of the city in the 2010 CPH.

An online information for the demographics of the Macro-Site Analysis. The 2000 Census of Population and Housing (Census 2000) results showed that Cebu with a total population of 2,377,588 persons was the second most populated province in the Philippines, next to the province of Pangasinan. It registered an increase of 313,487 persons from the population recorded five years ago. This was translated to an average annual growth rate of 3.07 percent, higher than that of the 1990 to 1995 period (2.01 percent).

2.4 VIDEO 2.4.1 Information for the Background of the Study KABILIN: History of the Maritime Industry of Cebu By Subuanong Kabilin (In Visayan Dialect) April 1, 2013 Local Video Translated by: Helen Castaneda and Jay-R Linaza

The video is made into three parts. The whole video was almost about the tourism of the province as the purpose of the material is to invite a lot of tourist though I doubt that they would be able to understand it. The main reason for using the Visayan dialect is not because the narrator couldnt speak in other languages because there are times that he would speak in English as well, but to encourage the people from his province to watch the documentary video to acknowledge the culture that they have.

Throughout the video, each seaport infrastructure, landmarks, and body of water that is related to the topic has its own story. In relation to the study, this documentary video provides the researcher additional background information about the seaport infrastructures around the province.

Chapter 3 Methodology

The research method used in this study is classified as Qualitative Research Method. The research began with rough ideas that turned slowly into research questions. To answer the researchers questions, literature review gradually build up knowledge about the research ideas. Data Collection and Organization phase took place to properly analyze the data gathered. These are difficult tasks, since the volume of data collected in qualitative research can be enormous. The gathering of data as well is quite difficult as well.

The Analysis flows into three concurrent action such as data reduction which focuses, simplifies and transforms raw data into more manageable forms, data display which presents the data as organized and compressed assemblies of information that permit conclusions to be analytically drawn, and verification where the researchers review and finalize the validity of the information gathered. Usually after the typical Qualitative Research Approach, Dissemination takes form of very well written and detailed documents, so that other researchers can evaluate analysis and conclusions obtained and decide if they trust the results and want to use them to feed their own research.

The focus of this preliminary study was primarily on researchers project about redeveloping the International and Local Seaports of the province of Cebu. There is a wealth of information for this review since there is a long history of Maritime Industry of the

36 | P a g e

Philippines that has been documented even before the Spanish Period. It was expected that competency in World Maritime Trade of our country because of our strategic location. The researcher is trying to associate the condition of the countrys seaport with its competence in terms of Trade and Industry locally and internationally.

The methods for identifying and locating resources involved accessing different universities Librarys online cataloguing system. Information related to the reviewed topics at OPAC was discovered in selected books. In addition, EBSCO and Google Scholar were heavily used to locate numerous online databases in order to find related scholarly articles . These online databases included ERIC EBSOhost Academic Search Elite, EBSOhost Professional Development Collection, and GALE Academic OneFile.

There have been few studies related about the different location of Philippine Seaports such as Batangas and Subic Bay Seaport that are available from the libraries of Far Eastern University and University of Santo Tomas. The Department of Tourism and National Library has varieties of books and reports about the accounts and statistics of different Seaports. There are a lot of countries trying to improve their Marine Ports as well and tried to share the information gathered in the World Wide Web. A lot different case studies were gathered, questionnaires were made, and other resources collected determining the issues regarding seaports on different locations and different circumstances.

37 | P a g e

The primary rationale for selecting the sources described above was reliability. The researcher recognized that he had access to human and electronic resources that would make locating sources of information fairly easy. However, it was the researchers responsibility to determine the credibility and the validity of the information to be referenced in this literature review.

The second rationale for selecting the above sources is the researchers own interest in the topic of seaport development and use of technology. The researcher intends to use this literature review as a foundation for future research in Seaport development in the area of Sustainable Architecture integration.

Chapter 4: Site Profile and Analysis

4.1 Site Criteria The site must be well positioned for regional distribution of good (15%) The site must be well allocated for global trade (15%) Site must be a major port of the Philippines (10%) Considered as the gateway of the region or city (5%) Must have an accessibility of resources around the area (10%) The port must have a lot of port infrastructure issues for the past years (20%) The site wont have any major changes for the next three years (5%) The port must have a huge role regarding economic condition of the city (20%)

4.2 Three Initial Sites 4.2.1 The Port of Manila (Pantalan ng Maynila) The largest seaport in the Philippines, and is the premier international shipping gateway to the country.

The Port of Manila and the region dates back to Spanish and pre-Spanish government of the Philippine Islands. It is documented that Manila and the Philippines had trade interrelationship with most adjacent countries at least as far back as the 9th to 12th centuries. Major trading participator included China and Japan, with ties to India through the areas that are now Malaysia and Indonesia. The Spanish-controlled Port of Manila handled trade primarily with China and other East Asian countries, with Mexico, with Arab countries, and

39 | P a g e

openly with Spain from the 16th to mid-19th century CE when the harbour was opened to all trade ships.

The harbour was also the staging moment for the Manila galleons, a state-monopolist navigation line running to Acapulco and back, which operated virtually continuously from the 16th to the early 19th century CE. Manila Bay was the setting for the Battle of Manila Bay in 1898 between United States and Spanish forces, and the encirclement of Corregidor Island by invading Japanese forces in 1942.

The Port of Manila is made up of three areas: Manila North, Manila South, and Manila. Manila North Harbor is located in the Tondo District of Manila which is the biggest and primary port in the Philippines for domestic cargoes. The multi-purpose terminal in the Port of Manila's North Harbour is used to handle general and containerized cargo and passengers. Manila South Harbour is operated by Asian Terminals Inc. (ATI), a publiclylisted port investor, operator, and developer in the Philippines. ATI operates the Port of Manila South Harbours container and domestic terminals and provides general stevedoring services. Located between the Port of Manila's North and South Harbours is the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) operated by International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI). The ICTSI was established in the Philippines in 1987 and has since expanded to operate container terminals throughout the Philippines and worldwide. The

40 | P a g e

Asian Development Bank has recognized the ICTSI as one of the world's top five maritime terminal operators.

4.2.2 The Batangas International Seaport (Batangas Pier)

It is the seaport which primarily serves the region CALABARZON. Situated 110 kilometres south of Metro Manila is the strategic and modern Port of Batangas which serves as a corresponding gateway for the Port of Manila. The port is directly connected with the major highways via modern infrastructure making it conveniently accessible to shippers, truckers and passengers. It was declared as a national port in 1956. In the 90's it was the second biggest port in the Philippines in terms of revenue, just behind the Port of Manila.

Though it has been declared as an International Port of Batangas., for now, Batangas Port is only operating domestically for its sea travel but its international container port is in full operation. It is now a gateway for every tourist who wants to experience paradise and discover the amazing underwater experience through diving and snorkling at Puerto Galera and other nearby islands like the Isla Verde which was recently announced as the center of the center of Marine biodiversity.

Batangas port is rapidly improving when it comes to facilities, services and operation even in their security level for good and safe travel. Sea vessels increased their count as a good sign of tourism and for the locals, franchises of different products appeared in port because of the demands of the traveller. 41 | P a g e

4.2.3. The Port of Cebu

Metro Cebu's Port of Cebu is the busiest domestic seaport in the Philippines. Along with the harbor areas of Mandaue and Lapu-Lapu, Cebu's "seaport complex" is considered as the busiest harbor in the Philippines in expression of number of yearly passengers. It is also the capital port of entry in the province of Cebu and Central Visayas Region. It act a vital role in the Philippine's navigation industry with about 80 percent of the country's navigation companies that are based here. The port is situated at the center of the province's east coast. It is nestled in a natural harbour in the narrow strait between Cebu City and Mactan Island, the latter providing a natural cover and breakwater, making the port one of the safest and functional the whole year round.

Cebu International Port and Cebu Domestic Port serves container vessels and wayfarer ships with destinations around the country and the world. Cebu International Port is a multipurpose terminal covering an range of 10 hectares with 690 meters of berthing space and a controlling draught of minus 8.5 meters at MLLW. The Cebu Baseport Domestic Zone is the scope for the domestic transactions of separate business approaching from and departure to the different island of the archipelago. It is devoted to coastwise shipping with 3.5 kilometers of berthing space, 3 finger piers and 3 passenger terminals.

4.3 Final Site The Port of Cebu 4.3.1 Macro Site Description Profile of the City Metro Cebu is the main urban center of the province of Cebu in the Philippines. Metro Cebu is located along the central eastern portion of the island including the nearby island of Mactan. It accounts for 20% of the land area and 60% of the population (2007 census) of the entire province of Cebu. It is located in Cebu City, the capital of Cebu and the regional center of Central Visayas with twelve surrounding cities and municipalities.

43 | P a g e

The Metropolitan Cebu Development Council (MCDC) is a body mandated to formulate development plans for the Metro Cebu area and coordinate their implementation. Unlike the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority, the MCDC does not have legal and institutional powers. Cebu is the gateway to around two-thirds of the Philippine archipelago. It is the primary destination of approximately 35% of the Philippines foreign visitors.

Superb destinations, low operating costs and excellent government administrative support favor the development of new destinations which are serviced from Cebu. There are opportunities for ocean and land recreation, transportation, marketing, and tourism-related developments such as mountain resorts, hotels and golf courses. After their arrival, travellers retrace historic journeys, play golf, hike mountain trails and laze on pristine white sands and dive on exotic coral reefs that equal the very best of anywhere. Cebus attractions make it the Philippines premier tourist destination.

44 | P a g e

The public administrators of the province have been known to be developmentoriented, steering Cebu to greater heights by putting in place infrastructure facilities needed for economic growth. Cebu has at least nine economic zones that offer to cut bureaucratic red tape by providing a much easier system for investors, plus incentives. It is number one because of good fiscal management: it ranks highest among the countrys provinces in terms of assets and cash in bank. Most importantly, Cebu ranks number one because of the current unity that has never been seen before in any province: unity among elected officials, unity among business groups, unity among its people, and unity between the private and public sectors.

There are many universities and other educational institutions that serve as magnet to students from other provinces, a major factor of a highly skilled and efficient workforce in Cebu. Overall, Cebu continues to excel and investors are drawn to Cebu because of the culture of professionalism and craftsmanship among its people, the vast highly skilled manpower resources resilient amid trying times, its fair weather, relative peace and businessfriendly atmosphere.

45 | P a g e Demographics The Metropolitan Cebu Development Council was created by the RDC through Resolution No.117 (1997) and was patterned after the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority. It is mandated to formulate development plans, prepare programs and projects, and coordinate/monitor the implementation of programs and projects that address problems and concerns affecting Metro Cebu.

The MCDC is composed of the Provincial Governor of Cebu; the Mayors of the Cities of Cebu, Mandaue, Lapulapu and Talisay; and the Mayors of the Municipalities of Compostela, Liloan, Consolacion, Cordova, Minglanilla and Naga. The Governor of Cebu acts as Interim Chairman of the Council.

In August 2005, the Regional Development Council (RDC 7) of Central Visayas, composed of all the governors of Region VII, the Metropolitan Cebu Development Council headed by the Cebu Provincial Governor and Local Government Units of Metro Cebu expanded the definition of Metro Cebu to include the towns of San Fernando and Carcar in the south and Danao City in the north.

Member-LGUs of the MCDC believe the commercial and industrial area of Cebu has already expanded to the towns of San Fernando and Carcar and to Danao City. MCDC does not have legal and institutional powers and resources like the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA). The MCDC defines the coverage of Metro Cebu for 46 | P a g e

planning purposes only. The Province of Cebu has proposed a bill to create a permanent Metropolitan Cebu Development Authority (MCDA). This bill is still pending in both the Congress and Senate. Metro Cebu comprises seven cities and six municipalities. (2010 Census)

Table 1. (Above) Population Chart of Metro Cebu The provincial capitol, the central business district, major educational institutions and the international port are all located in Cebu City while major industrial companies and factories 47 | P a g e

are located in Mandaue City. The international airport and the export processing zone are located in Lapu-Lapu City in Mactan Island. Danao City is primarily a mining city while Talisay City is a residential city with its income generated by small and medium sized businesses.

The population of Cebu in 2010 was 2,619,362 persons. The three largest cities (Cebu City, Lapu-Lapu, and Mandaue) had 866,171, 350,467, and 331,320 residents respectively. Therefore there are a total of 4,167,320 people living on Cebu, with a population density of 780.1 persons per km2. The population of the Central Visayas is predominantly young with about 37 percent of its population below 10 years old. This is very evident in the very broad base of the population pyramid in the region which has prevailed since 1970 but at a declining rate. A decline of 2.29 percentage points in the proportion of household population below 15 years old was noted from 1980 to 1995. Conversely, an increase of 3.06 percentage points was observed in the 1564 age group during the same period.

The population of the region is evenly distributed between male and female. However, the male population in the region has been increasing at a faster rate compared to the female population. Male population outnumbered their female counterparts with a sex ratio of 101 males for every 100 females. There were more males than females in the age bracket 0 to 49 years. As the age advanced to 50 years onwards, however, the females dominated their male counterparts.

48 | P a g e

Figure 3 Age Sex Population Pyramid Average household size was 4.4 persons The number of households in 2010 was recorded at 195,461, higher by 47,861 households compared with the 147,600 households posted in 2000. The average household size in 2010 was 4.4 persons, lower than the average household size of 4.8 persons in 2000.

Table 2 Average Household Size

In 2010, 34.6 percent of the occupied housing units in the city had outer walls made of concrete/brick/stone, up from 22.1 percent in 2000. Similarly, the proportion of occupied housing units with outer walls made of half concrete/brick/stone and half wood increased 49 | P a g e

from 30.1 percent in 2000 to 32.6 percent in 2010. Most (92.3 percent) of the occupied housing units in 2010, meanwhile, had roofs made of galvanized iron/aluminum. This is higher than the proportion recorded in 2000 at 88.2 percent.

In 2010, of the total 195,461 households, 46.5 percent owned or amortized the lots that they occupied. The corresponding figure in 2000 was lower at 36.9 percent. Moreover, 20.0 percent of the households occupied lots which were rent-free but with consent of the owner, 24.1 percent rented the lots that they occupied while 6.2 percent occupied lots which were rent-free but without consent of the owner.

Metro Cebu is located on the central eastern part of Cebu Province, an island at the center of the Visayas in Southern Philippines. As defined by the Bureau of Land Location Monument (BLLM) No. 1, Cebu Cadastral Survey, it is 10 degrees 17 minutes North Latitude and 123 degrees 54 minutes East Longitude. It is bounded by Mandaue City in the North and the City of Talisay in the South. On the East is Mactan Channel and on its West are the Municipality of Balamban and the City of Toledo.

51 | P a g e

The increasing urbanization of the metropolitan now leads to the increasing use of its land for housing, commercial, industrial, institutional and other related activities. Farmlands remained only in the upland or hilly land areas of Metro Cebu. Presently the metros upland areas and watersheds are mostly covered with grass and shrubs with patches of corn, coconuts, bananas, cassava and vegetables. Fruit trees are also planted, notably the exotic mango, which is an export product of Cebu. Very little (9.6%) of the natural forest are left in the upland areas of the city. Even the citys watersheds are lacking in trees that are necessary for their protection.

52 | P a g e

Metro Cebu is made up of structurally complex sedimentary and volcanic rocks that have undergone various degrees of metamorphism. There are seven rock formations or geological units in the city. Sedimentary rocks constitute 60 percent of the metro that include the Cebu Coal Measure, Malubog Formation, Barili Limestone, Carcar Limestone and the Recent Alluvium. The lowlands are generally located within elevations below 100 meters while upland areas are in elevation between 100 and 900 meters above sea level.

55 | P a g e Geo Technical Information Geography Cebu is located 365 miles south of Manila, the capital of Philippines. The province belongs to the countrys Central Visayas Region. It can be reached in an hour by air travel or 22 hours by cruising the sea. Topography

Its terrain is relatively flat on the coastal plain and becomes rolling and hilly at elevations of 40 to 200 meters, then generally rugged and mountainous at elevation of 200 to almost 800 meters above sea level. The slopes vary from 0 to 60 degrees. Its relatively flat terrain is only approximately 15% of the total land area. The mountain areas have become generally unproductive due to the adverse effects of deforestration and poor soil condition; and, the inadequacy of feeder roads has limited the use of the land for agricultural purposes. What may be called productive areas are planted either to corn, vegetables or fruits. In terms of effective land use, Cebu City has very unfavorable topography, since 80% of its total land area is mountainous. This situation also holds true for the adjoining municipalities, thereby limiting growth to the linear or ribbon type of development along the coastal plains. Cebu City's land poor is the rationale behind the reclamation of foreshore lands. Land use for the relatively flat area of Cebu City, considered as the urban core within the Metropolitan Cebu Area, is rapidly being intensified, with the old districts becoming high density areas including the Central Business District (CBD).

56 | P a g e

Cebu is characterized by narrow coastlines, limestone plateaus, coastal plains but with predominant rolling hills and rugged mountain ranges traversing the northern and southern lengths of the island. Although Cebus steep mountains reach over 1,000 meters, the island lacks substantial forest cover. In the towns of Bogo, San Remigio, Medellin, and Daanbantayan at the northern tip of the province, considerable tracts of land are found. Of the three biggest islands, Mactan and Bantayan are relatively flat while Camotes is hilly. Climate The Cebu Metropolitan Area has what is termed by the Weather Bureau as the third type of climate in which there is no distinct wet or dry season. There is more rainfall during the southeast monsoon seasons in the month of September. the summer heat which generally come in March reaches its peak in April and May. Humidity is approximately 77%, decreasing during the summer months and increasing during the rainy days by a few percent. As per records of the Weather Bureau, the average temperature in Cebu City is 27.4 0C or 81.3 0F Cebus weather is relatively moderate, having no distinct wet and dry season, the perfect vacation spot for all seasons. One can bask under the sunshine the whole year through since Cebu is blessed with tropical climate with generally fair temperature range of between 23 to 33 degrees Celsius or 73 to 91 degrees Farenheit. Coolest temperature can be felt in January and warmest in May. The rainy season begins in July bringing torrential downpours that would sometimes inhibit movement.

The Cebu Port System is composed of the Cebu Baseport and its subports which are strategically located in different points of Cebu. The Cebu Baseport is composed of the Cebu International Port and the Domestic Zone. There are five subports within the jurisdiction of Cebu Port Authority, namely: Mandaue, Danao, Sta. Fe, Toledo and Argao. Each of the subports is smaller ports that are essential to flow of domestic inter-island commerce. I. CEBU BASEPORT Cebu International Port Cebu Baseport - Domestic Zone

Soil Characteristics

The top soil on the higher elevation is primarily Faraon Clay. It is residual since it is derived from limestone. The top soil for the lower elevation is primarily clay loam. It is fertile since it is organic in nature, and it can also retain water very well. The primary composition of the sub-strait is limestone interspersed with bedrock formation. 66 | P a g e

Severe erosion has extremely exposed the limestone and rock foundation in some areas. According to the Bureau of soiols , the type of soil common in the different districts of the city and its environs are Faraon Clay, Mandaue Clay, and silt-loam, Baguio and Bolinao Clay. These types are responsible for the production of different kinds of vegetables and root crops, the ever popular Guadalupe mangoes, the much talked about grapes, sugar cane, corn and other staple products. SWOT Analysis

Strengths and Opportunities: The proposed project site at Cebu Baseport Domestic Zone at Cebu City has many strengths and opportunities as listed below: Proximity to the Metro Cebu and Islands central area Well adjusted location to near historical and interesting sites A lot of Hotel beside the Pier Basilica cathedral and Museums Parks plaza Mall Tourist Spots around the area The Port of Cebu is a historical site itself The area is well served by a number of port roads and has a direct link to major road Sergio Osmena Boulevard
