MANILA, Philippines - Instead of toys, clothes and the usual items people receive during the holidays, the residents of Iligan and Cagayan de Oro cities will receive coffins on Christmas Eve.
As early as 6 a.m. today, volunteers and Philippine Navy personnel started loading 500 white caskets donated by local government units in Pampanga province to the BRP Dagupan.
a little OT but since my training is in logistics, im just trying to determine if government can actually save non-combat related logistic run to private sector.
im wondering whats the full load of BRP Dagupan for this trip and whats the cost?
a Full Container Load (FCL) to Cagayan averages P25,000-30,000/TEU and its faster at 18-20 knots. transit time is about 35 hours.
if the NDRCC has coordinated with shipping lines, they can actually get a free ride.NN+ATS & 2GO
offered free transfer of relief goods to Cagayan & Iligan for free... they have 4x a week trip to CDO via 3 ropax & 1 freighter... the ropax are travelling average of 18-20 knots... transit time is about 35 hours including port stay in Cebu.
since they have the frequency (4x a week), some of the stuff can leave for CDO earlier instead of waiting for LC-551 to get the full load.
