MICP to auction seized goods

In an effort to generate more non-traditional revenues, the Manila International Container Port (MICP) will sell through public auction motor vehicles, e-bikes, computer parts, and other imported goods on Dec. 14, the Bureau of Customs (BoC) said on Tuesday.

MICP, the biggest collection district of BoC, is expected to collect P27.7 million from the auction sale.

Gerry Macatangay, chief of the port’s Auction and Cargo Disposal Division, said the auction is divided into 24 lots, which are also consist of Spanish wine, glass bottles, golf bags, galvanized steel sheets, and clothing apparel.

The MICP-ACDD set the floor price of three containers of one electric car, nine electric passenger multicabs, two scooter bikes, and an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) at P1.03 million.

At the public auction, the Manila port would sell three units of E-bike for P60,000 each.

Other motor vehicles up for auction are second-hand Honda CRV 2000 model, Toyota car 1986 model, Chevrolet venture, and two units of used Hyundai Starex ambulances.

Two containers of Alejandrino I, a wine product of Spain, will also be sold to prospective bidders at a floor price of P1.9 million while one container of central processing units and computer parts has a floor price of P3.36 million.

The MICP-ACDD, under Macatangay, is making last hurrah to collect more non-traditional revenues from public auction before the year ends.

From January 1 to Dec. 6, the MICP already earned P275 million for the sale of various forfeited imported goods.

Among the items sold in previous months were Thai rice, sugar, household items, personal effects, zinc alloy Ingot bars, metal scraps, Japanese rice wine, submersible pumps, aluminum screen, and used dump trucks.
