The port will cater to RORO vessels that will ply thru the shipping routes on daily scheduled round trips between Pio Duran and Masbate city (Masbate island/province) and Pio Duran and Claveria town of Burias island, Masbate province. Smaller but efficient kumpits or motorized bancas will dock at the port for daily scheduled round trips between Pio Duran and Claveria.

Previous to the commercial opening of the port, bus services between Manila and Masbate have to use the RORO facilities of the port of Pantao in Libon town which is much farther away and exposes travelers to a longer duration of sea travel.

The project cost the government itemized at P60.4 million for the port’s rock causeway and P14 million for the RO-RO ramp.
