Port Community System used to ease business at ports

The Government is using the Port Community System (PCS) to facilitate ease of doing business at the ports amid the COVID 19 pandemic.

The technology solution has reduced the need for persons to congregate at the ports, limiting the need for physical interaction, which is critical in the fight against the coronavirus. 

The PCS is a single, neutral and open electronic platform, which enables the secure exchange of information between public and private stakeholders in the port community.

It acts as a single window that manages all trade, logistics and business processes to improve the competitiveness of the island's ports.

Intended users include: shipping lines, terminal contractors, shipping agents, haulage contractors, terminal operators, importers and exporters.

The PCS is facilitated by the Port Authority of Jamaica in partnership with the Jamaica Customs Agency, along with the support of  the Shipping Association of Jamaica.
