Tràfic d'animals vius
During the second week of August, the Port of Tarragona experienced a significant increase in livestock exports, especially in lambs, to the countries of the Mediterranean basin that celebrate the feast of the lamb next September 1st. A demonstration of this is the loading of the ship "Fidelity", scheduled for tomorrow, which will take on board 13,000 lambs bound for Libya. The shipping agent for this vessel is Transmar Ship & Forwarding Agency and stevedoring is handled by Noatum Codemar.
In July 2012 the Port infrastructure launched a new export traffic in live animals with the aim of revitalising the livestock economy in its area of influence. Since the very first operation, growth has been exponential.
At the same time, this type of traffic gives the Port of Tarragona a distinction of high quality, since not all ports are suitable for working with this type of goods. The Port of Tarragona’s livestock terminal is equipped with customs, veterinary and stevedore services that are professionally prepared to receive this traffic, and is a good example of the goods diversification that the Port is promoting in order to become more competitive.
