The cars weighed 20 tons (18.1 tonnes) each and measured 14.5 m x 2.6 m x 4 m. The total volume of the cargoes amounted to 36,000 cu m.

Eight of the cars were prototypes from Spain and 224 were from Mexico.

According to XLP, the project involved several parties, both private and government, requiring day-by-day coordination between the Philippines, Mexico, Japan and Spain.
