DOMA Concerned About Interruptions At Port Of Spain Port

The Downtown Owners and Merchants Association is concerned with what it describes as the repeated interruption of operations on the Port of Port of Spain.

DOMA claims there are vessels of major shipping lines, which remain offshore, unable to berth or discharge their cargo.

It says whatever issues may have precipitated the action need to be resolved in the interest of the general well-being of the Trinidad and Tobago economy.

It explains in cases where the vessel is due to call at other ports it is a possibility if the delays in Trinidad are prolonged the shipping lines may well decide to bypass our port and go on to other ports to maintain their schedules.

This presents a challenging situation for those involved in various aspects of manufacturing and trade.

The timeliness of cargo arrival is related to many aspects of business operations, including production, re-export, sales and finance arrangements.
