Snapshot - Port-au-Prince Seaport — Humanitarian Logistics Information

Arguably the most important think that can happen. Bottlenecks have to be removed in shipping and air travel.

Snapshot - Port-au-Prince Seaport — Humanitarian Logistics Information:
"This week the port reached 510 containers in one day using lighterage, the south pier and one interim floating dock which has just been installed. The US Military is now establishing a second floating dock to double the size. These will be placed against the old wharf. Once complete, the floating docks, lighterage and four beach areas will provide capacity of up to 1,500 containers a day while all assets remain in place. These docks will be critical given the foreseen US withdrawal, after which lightering operations may not remain a viable option."
