Container striping in Haiti is similar to many other Caribbean countries. Personal effects goods are purchased by individuals in the United States and Panama mainly and shipped to Haiti for resale in local markets around the country.

The volume of personal effect cargo at the port of Port-au-Prince has been growing steadily over the past 10 years, reaching a peak of 20,000 TEUs in 2015. This cargo requires adequate and adapted services which CPS is committed to invest in and implement at the highest level of operational excellence.

Our consolidation and warehousing solutions will provide you with flexibility and technological support for tracking of your cargo. CPS is committed to service all NVOCCs and Freight Forwarders and other agents in need of efficient, professional and competitive consolidation and warehousing services.

CPS will have about 1 ha for reefer container storage and stacking. Dedicated power lines will be available for our 300+ plugs. Advance monitoring systems will be installed to provide the Lines and consignees with daily reports.
