Dominica is located at the Northern end of the Windward chain of the Lesser Antilles. It is the largest of this island group, lying between the French Overseas Departments of Martinique to the south and Guadeloupe to the north.
Freight traffic is dominated by containerized cargo, which in recent decades has been handled by five main shipping lines. Tropical, King Ocean, CMA CGM, Sea Freight, and Geest Line together dominate the Caribbean market. Most of the routes covered by these shipping lines are “feeder routes” that use Miami as their main hub and Trinidad and Tobago and Vieux Fort as regional transfer hubs between vessels.
