As part of a series of visits to assess Bermuda’s lands, infrastructure and buildings, Public Works Minister Colonel David Burch toured the Hamilton docks earlier this week.
Accompanied by the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary Francis Richardson on the tour by Stevedoring Services CEO Warren Jones, Col Burch said: “As 98 percent of all of Bermuda’s goods are imported into our island by container ships, the tour provided us with an opportunity to see first-hand how the port operates.
“We gained some useful insight on this very important service, which was in full action during our visit. It was quite impressive to witness the professionalism and expertise of this all Bermudian operation,” said Col Burch.
During the visit, the Minister was provided with a comprehensive overview of the dock’s logistics and operations, which was followed by a walking tour of the dock area.
