Port Works For Cayman

23 April, 2020

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the dedicated staff of the Port Authority of the Cayman Islands (PACI) has been working hard for Cayman.  Their efforts ensure there is no delay in food reaching the grocery stores, medicines reaching our health care facilities, vehicles and supplies that keep essential services running and that Cayman will be ready for commerce when the government decides it is safe to resume.  Here are a few pictures of how we make it all happen for Cayman.

The cargo vessels arrive and are discharged by our dedicated staff during the night.

The cargo is taken to our Cargo Distribution Centre where it is available to the grocery stores that same night and to all customers from the following day onward by the team working daytime.


Customers with Less than Container Loads or those who need to discharge their dedicated containers request exemption letters from us via email at exemptions@caymanport.com


Port fees can be paid online if you register with us, or at our Billing Office on Portland Road.  Please note that:

  • We ask customers/visitors to our facilities to wear some sort of covering over their nose and mouth.
  • We have security controlling social distancing and customer flow.
  • We have janitors disinfecting all door handles, counter surfaces etc upon the departure of one customer and prior to the entrance of the next customer.
  • We have hand sanitizers wall mounted in all public and staff/offices.


And then barge with cargo and supplies for the sister islands of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman is loaded for their weekly trip.



It takes a host of people to keep it all flowing; Cargo Operations nighttime and daytime, IT, Safety, HR, Finance and Billing, Facilities Maintenance, Human Resources, Harbour Patrol, Taxi Dispatchers (who have been reassigned duties with Facilities), Port Security and our contracted Security, K9 Security; our Janitors, A1 Cleaning Services and last, but not least, our Management and Administrative Team, who are working in excess of 12 hours most days.  I thank you all and I am proud of the service that you are giving to the Port Authority and our country!
