“Ready, Set, RORO!” is this year’s Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) Interisland Race using the RORO transport system. On its 4th year, this annual adventure race aims to promote the road roll-on, roll-off (RORO) terminal system and stimulate the RORO way of transport among travelers either for business or leisure purposes.
I was ecstatic upon first hearing it from one of Byahilo.com‘s shoutouts. I really wanted to join but I don’t have a driver’s licence, which is one of the requirements. Just imagine being able to go around the archipelago’s different provinces. Moreover, I personally haven’t tried the RORO system.
The race highlights several of Philippine’s major tourist attractions through the route including Batangas, Oriental Mindoro, Iloilo, Aklan, Romblon, Negros Occidental, Cebu, Camotes Island, Leyte, Surigao Del Norte, and Siargao. Add to that the native products of the provinces accessible through the RORO terminal system.
The RORO is under the DBP’s Sustainable Logistics Development Program (SLDP) which aims to modernize the process of transporting and distributing perishable goods and the harvest of farmers to and from various parts of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
