Improving connectivity in the Caribbean

Global end-to-end supply chain solutions provider DP World has announced the arrival of its first freighter aircraft at the new air cargo logistics hub in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. This milestone marks the official commencement of operations at this site, a multimodal platform launched in October 2023. 


The inaugural flight, operated by Air Canada Cargo’s Boeing 767F, has a capacity of approximately 50 t and will serve the weekly Toronto-Mexico-Ecuador-Punta Cana route. The aircraft is designed to transport a variety of goods, including fruits, vegetables, and medical devices.


With an investment of approximately USD 200 million, the Punta Cana free trade zone will house cargo logistics operations and offices for the innovation and development of fintech companies, including an experienced company dedicated to aircraft maintenance and repair (MRO). (cj)
