Caucedo’s vision for major logistics hub on course


Tucked away on the south coast of the Dominican Republic, one of the newest and busiest container ports in the Caribbean is quietly going about its business.

DP World Caucedo – built by the private sector and opened in 2003 – has an annual capacity of 1.68 million teu. Each year it handles more than 1,150 vessels at its two quays, which can handle three post panamax vessels simultaneously. The Puerto Caucedo Container Terminal is owned and operated by the leading port and terminal operator DP World.

Caucedo is the Dominican Republic’s largest port in terms of containers handled and its only dedicated deepwater terminal, handling around 60 per cent of all the country’s maritime container cargo.


Built on a greenfield site close to deep water, DP World Caucedo was constructed in two phases. Phase I included a 622 meter berth with 13.5 meters draft, a fully equipped 50 hectare container yard, and another 30 hectare empty container depot.The berth has five ship-to-shore post-panamax gantry cranes.
