Container port update.

Jamaica's Kingston Container Terminal (KCT) was ranked No. 1 among the Caribbean's top 23 container terminals by Containerisation Intl 2006, based on the total volume of containers of 20-ft equivalent units (TEUs) passing through each port for the year, reports The Jamaica Gleaner (Jan. 8, 2008):

The top three container ports in the region are managed by global container terminals and not by Caribbean ports. This is reportedly reflective of the infiltration of globalization. The container terminals and their respective management companies are: Kingston Container Terminal, managed by APM terminals; Free Port Bahamas, managed by Hutchinson Port Holdings; Port of Spain, Trinidad, managed by Portia Management Services Ltd., UK. The No. 6 Container Port, Caucedo, in the DR, is managed by DP World;

The Caribbean's Top Container Ports ranked in descending order by throughput in 2006 were: Kgn Container Terminal (Ja.); Free Port, (Bahamas); Port of Spain (Trinidad); Havana (Cuba); Ro Haina (Dom Rep); Caucedo (Dom Rep); Kingston Wharves Ltd. (Ja.); Pointe-a-Pitre (Guadeloupe); Point Lisas (Trinidad); Fort-de-France (Martinique); Port-au-Prince (Haiti); Barbados Port Inc.; Willemstad (Curacao); Oranjestad (Aruba); George Town (Cayman); St. John's (Antigua &Barbuda); Nassau (Bahamas); Castries (St. Lucia); Santo Domingo (Dom Rep); Boca Chica (Dom Rep); Roseau (Dominica); Cap Haitien (Haiti).
