The main office was established in the Colonial City of Santo Domingo, when the major volume of importation and exportation cargo was handled in the port of Santo Domingo.

As carriage by sea developed, through the use of containers and modernized ship’s, Rio Haina Port grew as the largest port in the D.R. due to its large area and capacity of attending a wide range of vessel types. In view of this, in 1990 Maritima Dominicana relocated its new main office including a new warehouse within the entrance avenue of Rio Haina Port.
