PMAC 22nd AGM: BVI Ports Authority wins Novaport Cup

The Port Management Association of the Caribbean’s (PMAC) top award for commercial marine port operations, the Novaport Cup, was awarded in 2019 to the British Virgin Islands (BVI) Ports Authority.

The BVI emerged victorious from a record number of entries. Twelve ports submitted entries for this annual event in which the PMAC uses previously agreed criteria to identify the marine port with the most improved operations.
Antigua and Barbuda Port Authority was the runner-up and third place went to the Port of St. Martin.

The 2019 PMAC port awards were announced and presented on June 28, at the Association’s annual awards dinner at the end of the three-day 22nd Annual General Meeting, held at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort in South Florida, USA.

The official report of the judging panel for the 2019 award noted:
“The Novaport Cup competition for 2018 saw the most entries to date with 12 ports vying for the title of the most improved performance based upon the agreed Key Performance Indicators used for adjudication.”

The (five) Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are:

  1. Total Cargo Volumes
  2. Total Revenue Generated per Revenue Ton
  3. Total Expenses per Revenue Ton
  4. Net profit per Revenue Ton
  5. Total Staff per Revenue Ton

In summary, the adjudicators’ report noted that operational performances were generally good. It stated that most of the ports reviewed reported improvement. Indeed, only two ports recorded improvements in less than three of the KPIs. The other nine ports showed improvement in three or more indicators.

Four ports recorded improvements in all five of the Key Performance Indicators. These ports are Antigua and Barbuda Port Authority; Grand Port de la Martinique; British Virgin Islands Ports Authority; and Galisbay Port, St. Martin.

Of these four ports, the performance of the British Virgin Islands Ports Authority was deemed to be the most improved.
