The main port of Jamaica is the Port of Kingston. Kingston harbour is the seventh largest natural harbour in the world and receives a large amount of container traffic due to its location in the Caribbean Sea. The container terminal in the Port of Kingston has undergone a substantial expansion in capacity in recent years to handle the growth in traffic expected in coming years. In the future Jamaica is expected to beneﬁt from the expanded Panama Canal with the prospects of signiﬁcant increase in trading vessels arriving, and importantly, passing through Jamaican waters. This will afford great opportunities for emerging logistics trends to meet with an increasing trade through Caribbean waters including new designated Free Zone sites on unused terminal land.
On arrival, all goods will have to undergo customs clearance before they can leave the port. Our agents in Kingston will help you deal with the forms and associated costs which are payable before you can collect your goods. Once destination charges have been paid and goods have cleared customs you can collect from our warehouse or our agents can arrange delivery direct to your door. We can ship to most inland destinations, including Kingston, Spanish Town, Portmore, Montego Bay, Mandeville, May Pen, Old Harbour, Linstead, Half Way Tree, Savanna-la-Mar and more. Further information on customs clearance in Jamaica is available here.
