8:00 Modernizing ROROs in the Philippines: Why, How, & The Case Study of Starlite Ferries

Since beginning operations in 1995 Starlite Ferries has grown to one of the most trusted vessel operators based in Batangas. Today Starlite is one of the fastest-expanding operators, with new routes opening between Batangas, Mindoro, Luzon and Mindanao. Beginning a complete refl eeting process in 2015, Starlite has by late 2016 commissioned 7 new custom-built vessels, with 8 more to come. In this session, hear directly from the CEO on his thoughts on improving vessel quality in the Philippines.

  • Why is there an urgent need to modernize? Facts, figures and the hard and soft evidence
  • The Starlite case and key considerations in design and shipyard selection
  • Weighing CAPEX against long-term ROI: Costs and benefits of owning a brand new RoRo vessel
  • Moving forward: What could be done to make refleeting viable for the average operator?
