Summary of HTACA

The port of Les Cayes (Port Code:HTACA) is one of Haiti's major ports, with export trade concentrating on mostly coffee and sugarcane due to its isolation from the political turmoil of the capital. It is a small port operated under the supervision of APN in the Sud Departement of Haiti, next to the town of Les Cayes. Located on the southern west coast of the country, it is mainly used to transport building materials (cement) and other supplies to supply the town market. It is also used to receive supplies coming directly from the International Port of Miragoâne. 
The location of the port in the south of the island allows greater access to west-southern areas of the country in an emergency. However, there is no storage capacity on site and cargo traffic to Haiti is only moved through the port sporadically.
