Carlos A. Gothong Lines, popularly known as CAGLI, is a passenger and cargo ferry company based in Cebu, Philippines. CAGLI was formerly a part of WG&A SuperFerry, a company in January 1996 which served 23 major provincial ports throughout the Philippines, and was the first domestic shipping company in the country to be certified by the International Safety Management Code standard.[citation needed] CAGLI, William Lines and Aboitiz Shipping (Aboitiz Transport System Corporation) formed what is still, today, the biggest merger in the Philippine shipping industry.[1]


With a mandate from the patriarch, Don Alfredo D. Gothong, the three siblings Bowen D. Gothong, Ben D. Gothong and Brezilda Gothong Co lead the rebirth of CAGLI with the launching of its first vessel, Butuan Bay 1, on October 3, 2002.

Positioning the company as a low cost operator, the CAGLI President, Ben D. Gothong is helped by the fourth generation Gothongs who are actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the shipping operations and other affiliate businesses. They are Calvin Boniface Lee Gothong, COO of Coco Palms, Clement Bryan Lee Gothong, Technical Superintendent of CAGLI, Cristina Wendy Ong Gothong, COO of GT Ferry, and Jade T. Gothong, COO of PCDC.
