Published:Wednesday | December 10, 2014 | 12:00 AM

Jampro has indicated that the Jamaica Logistics Hub initiative will provide a myriad of opportunities for global and domestic commercial and industry interests. Several cornerstone projects, which represent investment opportunities, include:

n Port of Kingston - The dredging of the Kingston Harbour and the expansion of the Port of Kingston will facilitate the docking of bigger ships

n Cow Bay, St Thomas - Proposed deep-water site for the development of a commodity port

n Jackson Bay - This location will be developed as a dry dock for ship repairs and maintenance

n Caymanas Economic Zone (CEZ) - This is a three-pronged investment opportunity consisting of an economic/industrial zone, a technology park and a facility providing renewable energy to these ventures

n Vernam Field - Located on 2,900 acres of land, Vernam Field is envisioned as a cargo aerodrome, warehousing facility and industrial centre.

n Jamaica Railway - The railway is an integral part of the hub as it will facilitate movement of cargo to and from the economic zones to key seaports and airport

n Norman Manley International Airport & Aerodromes - This airport is one of three international airports in Jamaica and a key transfer airport within the region.
