Port Industry Stakeholders Consult on Improving Efficiency at Kingston Container Terminal

The meeting was chaired by the President and CEO of the Port Authority of Jamaica, Professor Gordon Shirley and engendered a spirit of cooperation by the players to ensure a speedy and smoother flow of containers for the domestic market for the Christmas Season and beyond. In addition to the JCA, other key participants were the Port Authority of Jamaica (PAJ), Kingston Freeport Terminal Limited (KFTL), the Port Trailers Haulage Association of Jamaica (PTHAJ), the Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders Association of Jamaica (CBFFAJ) and the Jamaica Society of Customs Brokers (JSCB) who all committed to making the necessary adjustments for greater efficiency in port operations.
Several commitments were made by KFTL and many solutions were put forward including; further extension of opening times at KFTL, from two to five days, as well as on alternate Saturdays until December 8, 2018, to allow truckers to receive containers, thereby reducing the back-log that has occurred at the port in recent months. In the light of the approaching Christmas season, the JCA will continue to collaborate with its partners in reviewing port operations in an effort to ensure operational efficiency..
