“Today marks another milestone in the realisation of Jamaica’s economic development potential, as we unveiled Kingston Wharves’ Mobile Harbour Crane, commissioned the redevelopment of Berth 7, and broke ground for an integrated logistics warehouse complex on Ashenheim Road.
Kingston Wharves Limited (KWL) is consistently recognised as the region’s leading multipurpose port terminal operator, connecting our nation’s importers and exporters to over 45 international ports in the Caribbean, Latin, and North America.
