Outports handle all types of goods including imports and exports. These are all goods-related ports and do not include cruise ship ports.
Some of these ports include the Port of Montego Bay, the Reynolds Pier in Ocho Rios, Port Esquivel, Rocky Point, Port Rhoades, Port Kaiser and Rio Bueno, but there are others that receive ships occasionally.
