VESSEL VISITS

Overview

Jamaica’s logistics and infrastructure sectors are being hailed as driving sources for the country’s economic future.

While, we’ve always been focused on bolstering our rich transhipment history, the imminent expansion of the Panama Canal will not only cause a paradigm shift in world maritime trade, but will also see us benefiting from new and innovative commercial ventures.

In fact, we are actively and strategically planning to position ourselves as the fourth node in the international logistics chain, joining Rotterdam, Dubai and Singapore.
