Port Complex Evolution

Evolution of the Port Complex

2008

In 2008, the Port Authority implemented a major phase of its Port Reform program by substantially reducing its personnel and officially withdrawing from all cargo handling activities. This created an opportunity to further integrate the private operator collaboration with a long term vision of becoming a single operator and logistics hub. This resulted in the creation of Opérateurs Portuaires Réunis (OPR), a sister company of CPS, in 2009, with investments of $8 million in shore cranes.

2010

In 2010, the project was put on hold due to the January 12 earthquake, which destroyed the North Pier as well as the recently purchased shore crane. The existing OPR platform was crucial in speedy reestablishment of activities at the port.

Once again the private sector was called upon to assist the Port Authority in a time of crisis. Within six (6) months OPR installed three (3) floating piers, which reestablished berthing and handling capacity to pre-earthquake levels.

2016

Today, 6 years later, as the reconstruction of the North Pier is nearing completion, our vision to rationalize operations into a single operator is a reality. The CPS Logistics Hub of Haiti is primed to create wealth and added value for its partners: shipping lines, the government of Haiti and the business community as a whole.
