"Ship It Like The Pros" For a Faster, Safer, Smarter Move

Barrel Shipping Services

This is a popular method for shipping goods to Jamaica. If you have already packed your barrels then shrink-wrap pallet services can be heavily discounted as they are not required. We can normally load 4 x 55 Gallon Drum pallets to one barrel, these are then shrink-wrapped and strap banded to the pallet for additional security. If you are shipping barrels to Jamaica we offer a nationwide collection service so please ask us for prices by completing the moving quote form on this page.

Port Information

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.

Jamaica Destination Services in Kingstown

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.
