St. Lucia Marine Terminals Limited (SLMTL) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA). The company is charged with the responsibility of managing Port Vieux Fort which is located in the town of Vieux Fort, in the south of the island of St. Lucia.
St. Lucia Marine Terminals Limited was established with the principal purpose of being a privately managed company to operate the port of Vieux Fort which had been

operations of the company, largely because of the need to provide a price competitive transshipment service, an optimal size and flexible workforce, and a highly
efficient customer-oriented operation, in order to have penetrated the keenly competitive sub-regional transshipment market and strengthen the port's marketability in
