Jamaica and Martinique terminals win top awards

The CSA’s 44th AGM in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, in October closed with the traditional Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony.

These awards are much coveted, with ports and terminals across the Caribbean contending for the prizes in a range of categories. And 2014 was no different.

At the latest ceremony, Jamaica’s Kingston Wharves Ltd (KWL) and Terminal de la Pointe des Grives in Martinique were declared the winners of the Caribbean Port Awards.

KWL received the Ludlow Stewart Multi-Purpose Terminal of the Year Award while Terminal de la Pointe des Grives won the Container Terminal of the Year award.

Five sectional prizes were awarded to other terminals in the region:

  • Port Dependability and Flexibility: Grand Port Maritime de Guadeloupe
  • Port Efficiency and Productivity: Sociedad Portuaria de Santa Marta, Colombia
  • Growth, Development and Improvement: Manzanillo International Terminal, Panama
  • Security: Kingston Container Terminal, Jamaica
  • Port Environment, Health and Safety: DP World Caucedo, Dominican Republic.

Ports and terminals taking part in the Port Awards competition are judged on their performance over the previous calendar year – in this case 2013.

The Port Awards competition was established in 1987 with the aim of promoting the improvement of regional port operations.

The winning husband and wife pairing from Curaçao in the annual CSA Golf Tournament also picked up their trophy.
