The port of Barahona is mainly used as a port for loading bulk cargoes.  The two main exports are sugar in bulk, which is loaded manually in bags onto the vessels where they are bled through the ship’s hatches into the cargo holds, and gypsum, which is loaded mechanically by conveyor Belt and coal discharged through a Hopper to a Conveyor Belt.  Of the six berths in the port, only the sugar and gypsum facilities are used regularly to handle cargo; the others are used mainly as layberths for vessels undergoing repairs or fishing vessels awaiting orders.  The sugar mill also exports some bulk molasses from its facilities.
