Port Authority of the Cayman Islands Port Director, Clement Reid informs Cayman 27 that in the shipping industry, port efficiency is measured in how many containers are moved from ship to shore hourly. He states, ports like Singapore, Long Beach, New York and Savannah, Georgia come in at around 27 to 29 moves per hour, and Cayman is right on their heels at 25 to 27 moves hourly.
Mr. Reid highlighted that “The average container that comes in for our major importers such as Progressive Distributors, Hurley’s, and the big supermarkets, takes 15 minutes between the ship and to delivery at Progressive. That’s unheard of in any port around the world.”
