In about a year from now, importers and exporters in the nation-state of Antigua and Barbuda will experience a breath of fresh air.

In Spring 2019, just ahead of the global deadline for new mandatory requirements on Electronic Data Interchange, Antigua and Barbuda is expected to open its Maritime Single Window. According to the new IMO standard (1.3Bis), Public Authorities have to establish systems for the electronic exchange of information by April 8, 2019.

New berth under construction

Barbados is in the process of constructing an additional 300 metres of berthing capacity at its main port.

When the new Berth 6 is brought into service, it will have a depth alongside of 15 metres and a loading capacity of up to 55 tons/m2. Nine acres of reclaimed land will be asphalted to create a container storage zone adjacent to the new berth. With this completed, Barbados Port Inc. (BPI) would have moved closer to achieving one of its main objectives of separating cruise ship activities from maritime cargo operations.
