The Bridgetown Port - A Record of Contribution and Service

As we celebrate 47 years of Independence, this is a time to review the past and look to the future.  This has been a strategic policy of the Bridgetown Port from inception.

The Port is a major port of entry for 90% of the goods used in the manufacturing and retail sectors in Barbados.  A major part of its responsibility has been dedicated to supporting businesses in the import/export trade, a job that it carries out without any government subsidies, unlike the majority of ports in the region.
