This year, the Shipping Association of Trinidad & Tobago (SATT) will be hosting our delegates in their beautiful twin island republic.

The Caribbean Shipping Association's (CSA) highly anticipated annual Port Awards Competition is fast approaching and all ports and terminal operators across the Caribbean and Latin American Region are being encouraged to prepare their submissions in order to participate.
From the inception of this competition in 1987, the CSA’s Port Awards Competition has sought to promote the development and increased efficiency of port operations. It has served as a great driving force for regional ports and terminal operators, encouraging and stimulating the development of best practices through the recognition of the outstanding performance of ports in key areas.
Each year, the CSA’s Port Awards Committee compares the performance of participating ports to determine who stands above the rest. The Committee looks at port dependability and flexibility, port efficiency and productivity, port growth and development, security, health, environment and safety.
Awardees are not selected based on the size of their operating port or terminal. The CSA assesses the improvement, performance and security of the different ports and terminals and, as such, any port in the Caribbean stands a chance of winning the top prize, or any of the various sectional prizes, once its management systems are up to standard and its corporate functionality is progressive. At the end of the process, the CSA is able to announce to the world those Caribbean ports and terminals that have achieved high standards of operational performance.
