ICTSI reaches milestone with 90% of its workforce vaccinated


International Container Terminal Services, Inc (ICTSI) has reached a 90% vaccination rate for its employees as it continues the fight against COVID-19.

Over 9,700 employees of the ICTSI Group have either been partially or fully vaccinated against the virus as of 31 October 2021.

“We are very grateful to and proud of the men and women of ICTSI who made the decision to protect themselves, their loved ones, officemates and communities. Getting vaccinated gives us the most effective protection against COVID-19 and the best chance to restore normalcy in our daily lives,” said Christian R. Gonzalez, Executive Vice President of ICTSI.

With the vaccination rollout, alongside the health and safety protocols in all of the group’s terminals, ICTSI has recorded less than 2,000 cases from July 2020 to October 2021. Of these cases, 98% have fully recovered.

“The health and safety of employees have always been our priority, but we cannot do this alone. We must all continue to keep our guard up to be disciplined and learn to carry on as we hopefully transition from pandemic to endemic,” Gonzalez continued.

Earlier this month, ICTSI also agreed to continue operating the Madagascar International Container Terminal until 2040.

During a ceremony taking place at the port city of Toamasina, ICTSI and Société de Gestion du Port Autonome de Toamasina (SPAT) signed a 15-year extension of the concession for the container terminal located in the Port of Toamasina.

ICTSI has held the concession since 2005 and this extension will now see it develop and manage operations at the facility through 2025 until 2040.

The extension agreement was signed by Mr Valery Ramonjavelo, Chairman for SPAT, and Hans-Ole Madsen, Senior Vice President and Head of EMEA for ICTSI.

This agreement complements the $639 million port expansion project now underway in Toamasina, with $411 million provided by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and $227 million by the Government of Madagascar. This expansion project guarantees the presence of modern port capacity over the long term.
