Several services, such as permission to third parties for the use of premises or for the provision of services engaged in the loading and unloading of cargo as well as porters services, are tasks assigned by the Authority to individuals. In any case, the Authority reserves its regulatory and supervisory role.
At the port of Lemesos and Larnaka, the loading and unloading of ships is handled by the shipping agents of the ships.
For the loading and unloading of ships, CPA’s cranes and gantries are being used and when those are not sufficient, private cranes are being used from companies which have been granted a relevant permission by the Authority.
The loading and unloading of ships at Vassiliko Port, is carried by a private company, which manages the port upon a relevant permission that was granted by the Authority.
With regard to cargo handling, the entire process of transfer, selection and stacking of containers and general cargo of the port in the warehouses or at container terminals, is conducted by the Association of Licensed Porters, under the Authority’s supervision.
