The port of Barahona is mainly used as a port for loading bulk cargoes. Usually sugarin bulk, which is loaded with ship’s gear by bleeding big bags into the holds. The port has four berths of which only two are used for loading operations because of the the sugar and gypsum facilities available. The other two are used mainly as layberths for vessels undergoing repairs or fishing vessels awaiting orders. There are also some small tankers discharging gasoil at these berth’s.
