Sector Profile

Kingston Harbour, the seventh largest harbour in the world and home to the largest container in the Caribbean, is poised to serve as the major port for the planned Jamaica Logistics Hub. Jamaica will seek to offer greater logistic efficiencies to markets in the region by leveraging key existing infrastructure, the country’s prime location in proximity to major East-West shipping lanes and direct connections to all regional ports.

In addition to ideal sea connectivity, Jamaica is also centrally located along several air routes to the Americas, Europe and the Caribbean. Jamaica is connected by air to most major gateways across the world, due in large part to its vibrant tourism industry. Currently, the country has three   international airports, two of which are major international airports located in the island’s major cities - Kingston and Montego Bay. These advantages are complemented by a robust telecoms infrastructure, an expansive road and highway network, available land for development and a talented, cost competitive workforce.

The components of the Jamaica Logistics Hub will be inter-connected via multiple modalities - air, sea and land, thereby allowing for maximum efficiency. 

The development of Jamaica’s Logistics Hub will satisfy the demand for global-standard logistics capacity serving the Eastern Seaboard of the USA.

 

COMPONENTS OF THE JAMAICA LOGISTICS HUB

The Jamaica Logistics Hub incorporates several proposed and existing projects including:

  • Expanded Port Facilities (to include the Port of Kingston, Fort Augusta and Gordon Cay)
  • Caymanas Economic Zone
  • Dry Dock facilities at Jackson Bay
  • Cow Bay Port Development (commodity port)
  • Vernamfield Aerodrome and Cargo Facility
