About Us

The Port Management Association of the Caribbean (PMAC) conducted its inaugural meeting in Antigua on June 26, 1998, having succeeded the Port Management Association of the Eastern Caribbean (PMAEC) established on May 16, 1988.

The major objective of PMAC is to improve the proficiency of member ports and the quality of services provided to users, specifically through the facilitation of appropriate training. Moreover, amidst developments within the maritime industry, the Association strives to remain relevant by delivering critical services to members, which entail the sharing of experience, information, and ideas, as well as advocacy and representation at multilateral levels.

PMAC membership affords the opportunity to network and collaborate with key officials of Port Member as well as competent regional and international Associate Member companies offering a variety of industry-related services, most with an established track record of working in the Caribbean.

In addition, PMAC has established MOUs which facilitate cooperation in the achievement of mutually beneficial objectives with strategic partners.

PMAC therefore performs an integral role as a node in the network of Caribbean ports, stakeholders, and strategic partners, by monitoring developments, building closer cooperation, and coordinating relevant response of members to industry changes and requirements.
