The Port of Tarragona has always been associated with the traffic in vehicles. In fact, historically it has been and continues to be the Port which exports cars destined for countries in the Mediterranean basin and the importing of vehicles from the Far East, mainly South Korea.
One of the many advantages offered by our Port infrastructure is its excellent accessibility by rail to all the facilities devoted to the automobile.
Exporting and importing vehicles
At present we have two terminals that handle this type of traffic.
An import-oriented terminal, with facilities prepared for the pre-release of vehicles (PDI), protective mesh, workshops and extensive parking areas and both of these operate with the main scheduled lines for horizontal cargo devoted to the transport of vehicles.
In terms of the makes, we could mention: HYUNDAI, KIA, SANGYONG, OPEL, VLKSWAGEN, AUDI and SKODA as the most significant.
EVOLUTION IN THE MOVEMENT OF VEHICLES
The Port brings added value to the logistics chain
