The Caribbean Shipping Association’s Port Awards were as hotly contested as ever in October 2013 at the 43rd Annual General Meeting at the Sheraton Panama Hotel & Convention Center.

A total of 15 terminals from across the Caribbean competed for the awards. To the obvious delight of delegates, the 2013 awards, as in the year before, threw up unexpected winners in the two main categories: Best Multipurpose Port/Terminal and Best Container Terminal.

To the surprise of many – but not those in the know – Puerto Rico’s Intership won Best Container Terminal, an award long dominated by Manzanillo International Terminal in Panama and Colombia’s Sociedad Portuaria de Cartagena. This is the first time the top award has gone to Puerto Rico. Intership is a stevedoring contractor and terminal operator with 50 years’ experience.

Meanwhile, the Port of Guadeloupe, winner of the previous year’s Growth & Development award, made the step up to take the Multi-Purpose award.

The prizes awarded each October refer to the previous calendar year’s performance. Here is a guide to recent winners of the coveted CSA Port Awards:
