Globalport Zamboanga

The Port of Zamboanga serves as an inter-island passenger, cargo and vehicle transportation port (RoRo) for the city of Zamboanga and its surrounding area. It is located just 600 meters from the city center or approximately 4 minutes with light traffic. It began operating under the management of Globalport Terminals Inc. in July 2021 and offers RORO, LOLO, CHARO and passenger terminal services to the public.


Ro-Ro stands for ROLL-ON/ROLL-OFF and means that specially designed ships for carrying wheeled cargo, such as cars, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars can drive on and off of the ship on their own wheels through a vehicle platform. Elsewhere in the shipping industry, cargo is normally measured by metric tonnes, but RoRo cargo is typically measured in lanes in meters (LIMs). Alongside this civilian usage, RoRo vessels are also utilized and incorporated in the naval sector to transport important naval freight.

Lo-Lo stands for LIFT-ON/LIFT-OFF. It describes cargo ships with on-board cranes to load and unload cargo. LoLo ships maintain vast amounts of space on top of the vessel (as well as on the ship deck), and space allows it to be altered to fit the needs of the freight that is lifted on for transportation.

Cha-Ro is a form of Ro-Ro system in which a container mounted on a chassis is loaded on and off the cargo belly of Ro-Ro ships by a prime mover or a tractor. Unlike the pure Ro-Ro mode, the container-mounted chassis is disengaged from the prime mover, leaving behind the prime mover at the port of origin. The cargo is later picked up by another prime mover at the port of discharge. 

In the maritime industry, passenger terminal is a building in a port or on a dock where passengers board and disembark from passenger ships such as cruise ships and ferries.
