Goods can be transported to and from Grenada by air or sea. The roads tend to be narrow and winding, so goods transportation by Grenada’s road network is generally avoided.

The main port used for the transportation of goods is St George’s Port, operated and managed by the Grenada Ports Authority. The port offers a small harbour accommodating vessels up to 208 metres, with maximum draft alongside of 8.5 metres. It provides 5.2 hectares of open storage, a transit shed with 1,858 square metres capacity and another warehouse with 929 square metres capacity.

Additionally, there are airports located on the islands of Carriacou and Canouan. Airports are regulated by the Grenada Airports Authority.
