Cargo dock reopens

Bermuda's only cargo dock has reopened for business.

A spokesman for Stevedoring Services Ltd, which has the exclusive licence to operate the docks in Hamilton, said a team from SSL assessed and reordered the dock yesterday following the passing of Hurricane Humberto.

The spokesman said: “It was determined that the facilities were in good order. The docks will open as normal at 8am on Friday, and will be able to receive containers back on the port at that time.”

Warren Jones, the chief executive of Polaris Holding Company Ltd, SSL's parent company, said: “I am pleased to report that the Hamilton Port has been reset and is ready to receive the Bermuda Islander and regular business customers on Friday.”

The MV Bermuda Islander is set to dock in Bermuda this afternoon. Discharge of the Islander will occur immediately upon arrival, the spokesman said.
