Our crane lifting projects are also up and running. We are operating as normal during the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ). Not even a pandemic can stop us from moving and lifting!

Royal Cargo cranes lift straddle carrier upper beam for the LRT-1 Cavite Extension project.

Recently, the Philippine government has allowed the resumption of infrastructure developments following a two-month lockdown. One of the key projects allowed to operate is the LRT-1 railway extension project of Light Rail Manila Corp (LRMC). The project aims to extend the railway from Pasay down to the Province of Cavite. The resumption of the project encouraged service providers including Royal Cargo to return to work.

Royal Cargo resumed its crane lifting operations for the LRT-1 project last May 7, 2020. Deployed on site are 220T Grove and 130T Liebherr cranes to install straddle carrier upper beams.

Earlier this year, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 as a global pandemic. The whole world was taken by surprise with the sudden increase of COVID-19 cases globally. The rising number of cases caused panic forcing governments all over the world to implement social distancing and lockdowns. As response to the declaration by WHO, the Philippine government placed the entire Luzon region under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ). This measure aimed to combat the further spread of the virus in the Philippines. Due to the lockdown, the critical projects under the Build, Build, Build program of the Duterte administration have come to a stop. For almost two months, construction and development were banned from operating.

Royal Cargo continues to operate as normal. We ensure the unhampered flow of goods for our country men. Our cranes are always available for any kind of lifting. For any urgent lifting requirements, you may send us an email at
