About Us

CPS is a merger of most shipping agents and terminal operators functioning at the public complex of the International Port of Port-au-Prince since 1978. With over 70 years of experience, the shareholders of this private entity have been part of the most effective Partnership with the Port Authority.

The spirit of collaboration within the shareholders of CPS has long been established since the creation of The Haitian Maritime Association (AMARH) in 1949. The objective of AMARH was to serve as an intermediary to address common issues between agents, the Port Authority and the Union (STAM).

In response to the really fast growing containerization of cargo, the Port Authority, in the late 70s, invited the private sector to invest in container yards within the public complex. To meet this challenge, three (3) separate entities emerged investing over $60 million in reclaiming more than 50 ha of swampland. Around the late 80s, as the Port Authority’s equipment pool was deteriorating and further public investment lacking, the private terminals invested an additional $40 million in handling equipment.

CPS phase one project is the construction of a modern and efficient container terminal called PAPCT adjacent to the newly built public Berth.
