DANSPENTA General Services, Inc. is the shipping company behind the fast craft ferry project. The company will be utilizing a 150-seater fast craft from Japan for this service. It is also planning to use e-ticketing system for faster and more convenient ticket reservation and booking.

This faster alternative transport system will be servicing the Santa Ana wharf and Lupon routes which will eventually cut the traveling hours. This sea-borne transportation has an estimated travel time of 1 hour and 12 minutes non-stop.

The company has two fast crafts. The bigger fast craft will be used for public utility transport while the smaller one will be serving chartered tours. Additional fast crafts will be added depending on the demand, the company said.

Once operational, commuters can avail of a much faster one-hour trip from Davao to Lupon which normally takes two to three hours by bus.
