Asian Marine Transport Corporation (AMTC)

Is a Filipino passenger and freight shipping company established in 1999 in Cebu City, Philippines. It owns and operates the Super Shuttle RORO, Super Shuttle Ferry and Shuttle Fast Ferry brand of RORO and ROPAX ferries.



AMTC was incorporated in 1999 in Cebu City, Philippines with the goal of providing end-to-end transport and logistics services as well as shipping services for inter-island passengers and cargoes.

That same year, it began operating the Super Shuttle RORO brand of inter-island logistics service using refurbished German RORO vessels. It later started offering passenger services through its Super Shuttle Ferry and Shuttle Fast Ferry brands. Since its establishment, the company has grown to become the largest ship-tonnage owner and operator in the Philippines, serving 32 ports of call. The company has an estimated nationwide market share of 35% for containerized cargoes and 80% for rolling cargo.



In 2010, the company began using the Batangas International Port as it hub.



In September 2017, AMTC won the Priority Integration Logistics Sector Award in the ASEAN Business Awards.

All right, now let's get down to what I'm interested in

2012

Super Shuttle RoRo 1 (IMO 7700439)






The 29 the July the2012 ferry Super Shuttle Roro 1 ran aground in Looc Bay, Philippines. The ferry was en route to Odiongan with 106 passengers and crew from Dumaguit on its scheduled route. Conditions began to worsen as tropical storm Gener approached. The vessel soon was battling big waves and heavy rains. The master of the Shuttle RORO 1 decided to seek shelter and headed for Looc Bay. As the vessel entered the bay, it struck the coral reefs. The ferry suffered hull damage and extensive water ingress. After contacting the Philippine Coast Guard, the master ordered to abandon ship as the vessel flooded. The Coast Guard dispatched rescue craft to the scene. Reports state four passengers had perished or were missing while the rest were rescued by the Coast Guard. The survivors were taken to Odiongan Island. Authorities are conducting a search and rescue of the area.



Then the ship catches fire due to burning cigarettes that fell on the seats, that is the official report.

Super Shuttle Ferry 7 (IMO 7322495)


Technical Data








Super Shuttle Ferry 7 floats on its side after capsizing due to strong winds and huge waves unleashed by Typhoon Kalmaegi, locally named Luis, in Manila Bay on September 15, 2014.



A passenger ferry seeking shelter from a strong typhoon capsized Sunday night in Manila Bay, Philippines.

The ferry, named Super Shuttle Ferry 7, reportedly sank at around 8 p.m. Sunday night and was not carrying passengers at the time.

All 15 crew members were rescued after spending up to two hours in the water. One of the crew, a security officer, was not rescued until around midnight, when he was found clinging to a piece of plywood, according to local reports.



Typhoon Kalmaegi, locally called Luis, hit the northern Philippines on Sunday, cutting power and communications lines and forcing people to flee to higher ground, officials from the national disaster agency said.

The ship was abandoned in place and in mid-2017 it was helped to sink

2016

Super Shuttle Roro 5 (IMO 7822500)


Technical Data








The "Super Shuttle RoRo 5" was beached by the typhoon Nock-Ten (Nina) on Dec 26, 2016 at the Mabini coast in the Batangas province, south of Manila. At 11 a.m. the ferry drifted in the waters off Mabini San Miguel, before running agrund. The Coast Guard deployed the "Pampanga" and "MCS 3001" to verify the situation and assist in rescue operations. All 25 passengers and crew members were saved.



The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) contained an oil spill from the "Super Shuttle Roro 5" that ran aground in Mabini town in the Batangas province at the height of typhoon “Nina” in December 2016. 100 liters of bunker fuel mixed with water spilled in the area where the ferry had been stranded in Barangay (village) Malimatoc.

The vessel was later sold to a new owner, who recently started the ship’s stripping. The  Coastguard received a report of an oil spill in the late evening of March 12 oif 2018. Immediately they sent responders and booms.



However, the PCG ordered the salvaging suspended “to see what better way to avoid another leak.  The wreck was believed to still contain bunker fuel in its lower deck.

That is why the semi-dismantled ship remains in place.

SUPER SHUTTLE FERRY 15 (IMO 6811528)


Technical Data








SUPER SHUTTLE FERRY 15

The Super Shuttle Ferry 15 here is an incredible story.

First we have to go to the year 2012 where the Super Shuttle Ferry 15 ran aground.




The 262 dwt roll-on/roll-off passenger ferry Super Shuttle Ferry 15 ran aground near Merida, Leyte, Philippines.  The ferry had left the port of Ormoc City with 191 passengers bound for Cebu when it lost power after suffering engine failure.   The vessel drifted until it ran aground in shallow water.   The vessel contacted the Philippine Coast Guard, who reported that the ship had run aground and that its sister ship, the Super Shuttle Ferry 23, was being dispatched to the scene.   A few hours later the Super Shuttle Ferry 23 arrived, transferred 185 passengers and returned to Ormoc City.  There are no reports of injuries. 


Ferry Accident – what had happened?
There are still a lot of different stories told around the island. We report the most obvious one:



Super Shuttle Ferry 15 had plied the route from Cebu to Camiguin in the night from Friday to Saturday, November 21 to 22. The crew then discovered water entering below the water line around the tail shaft. The responsible officer then decided not to sail back to Cebu but wait for a tug to be brought to Cebu.

Instead of dispatching a tug boat with strong engines from Cebu, the company decided that the much smaller and much under-motorized Super Shuttle Ferry 11 should tow the big number 15 to Cebu.

Yesterday they started the operation when sea had been rough and wind blew at 35 km/h. They completely underestimated the strong drifts on this coast. The drifts, the waves and the wind together pushed the two boats northwards and towards the coast. The weak engine of Super Shuttle Ferry 11 had no chance.

Instead of cutting the tow rope and safe at least number 11, the two ships collided and ran on ground in the coral blocks

Following that disaster, a tugboat was dispatched to tow the Super Shuttle Ferry 15 to the port of Jaman, Misamis Oriental, Philippines.



This arrived there in 2015 with the idea of repairing it, but it was never done and that is why I have it as abandoned in 2016.

This is all my research and if there is anything wrong, please say so.

I have broken my head researching, I do not affirm anything but I believe 99% that everything I say is true.

If anyone has any comments, they would be appreciated

2018

Super Shuttle Roro 11 (IMO 7725166)


Technical Data









In mid-2018 the ship SUPER-SHUTTLE-RORO-11 suffered a broken engine while berthed in the port of batangas, Philippines.



The ship was towed to a nearby location for repairs.

While at that engine repair yard, a fire broke out, firefighters arrived and rescued 2 men with the beginning of asphyxiation.

The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), informed and disqualified the ship from sailing.



The ship remained a few years in that port, until in 2022 the order was given to dismantle the ship.

It appears that the vessel was scrapped in 2023.   



Google Earth February 2019:
The ship is already in its new location, as it was towed from the port of Batangas to this place.



If you zoom in, you can see this, there you can see the ferry docked.



But if you zoom in closer you can see even the name of the ship SUPER SHUTTLE RORO 11




Google Earth image of October 2022:
The ship is still under repair or beginning to be scrapped.



What strikes me is that using Google Maps you can't SEE THE BOAT!!!!

Super Shuttle Roro 11 (IMO 7725166) was scrapped or was towed to a location and abandoned, to see if it sinks by itself?

According to my research the ship was not scrapped, the ship is abandoned here:

I write this in capital letters because I want you to understand my idea.

MY IDEA WAS ALWAYS TO PUBLISH SHIPWRECKS AND TO SHOW THEM ON GOOGLE MAPS OR GOOGLE EARTH.

There are other Super Shuttle ships that sank but they are not visible on Google Maps or Google Earth, that's why those are not published.

Please make me understand?  ;) :)
