Hike in Benguet cold chain project utilization fee eyed
by Susan Aro / PIA

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – Due to the  increasing cost of maintenance and repair of facilities, the management of the Benguet Cold Chain Project sees the need for the increase in the collection of fees for the utilization of the facility.

In carrying out the adjustment of fees, Provincial Ordinance 06-114 which stipulates the collection of fees, needs further amendments by the provincial board.

In a letter addressed to Gov.  Nestor Fongwan forwarded to the provincial board for appropriate action, Benguet Cold Chain project manager Shellanie Molitas requested for the amendment of Section 8 of Ordinance 06-114, an ordinance amending the implementing guidelines prescribed for the management and operation of the Benguet Cold Chain.

The letter states that there was an amendment of fees implemented in 2007, seeing the urgency due to the increasing costs of operations.

Should the proposal for another amendment of fees be approved, the services proposed for increase are transport facility utilization of refrigerated trucks and the modular cold storage utilization rented out on a 24-hour basis.

Among those identified are 20-footer ref trucks from P5,600 to P6,100 with a load not exceeding 5,000 kilograms; 16-footer ref trucks from P3,500 to P4,000 with a load not exceeding 3,900 kilograms; 10-footer ref trucks from P3,000 to P3,500 ref trucks with a load not exceeding 1,950 kilograms. 

Other ref trucks included were 18-footer ref trucks at P5,000 with a load not exceeding 4,000 kilograms; 14-footer ref truck at P3,750 with a load not exceeding 2,000 kilograms.

One provision for amendment is for the clients to shoulder the cost of fuel, toll fees and other incidental expenses.

Additional charge is also being proposed in excess of the 24-hours duration in proportion to the number of extended hours.

Additional charges shall also be collected for delivery and/or pick up services beyond the boundaries of Manila which shall be determined by the excess of the regular normal distance traveled.

As to the modular cold storage utilization, from the original P700 rental per chamber, they would like to increase it to P800. For the two chambers, the original cost of P1,200 would be increased to  P1,400.  The rental cost for the stationary cold container will be P1,000.

Adopted for first reading, the Committee on Ways and Means recommended to forward the matter to the Committee of the Whole for further study and appropriate action.
