Department of Transportation Offers Salvage Bonus

On Friday, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) offered a bonus to a salvage contractor to retrieve industrial fuel and dangerous chemicals inside the sunken M/V Princess of the Stars. The ship sank somewhere near Roblon Province. The company Titan Salvage, is owned by Crowley Maritime Corporation. Crowley Maritime Corporation is the largest maritime service corporation in the world with its headquarters in Florida. Government officials are concerned that the sunken vessel could cause considerable environmental damages owing to the toxic chemicals aboard. Because of the potential harm the DOTC is considering tightening regulatory controls on freight forwarders.
