Tarragona, the gateway port for tropical fruit in southern Europe

The Port of Tarragona is the gateway for tropical fruit for the Iberian Peninsula and southern Europe.

We have facilities and intermodal services that make it one of the best options on the Mediterranean for distributing to the Iberian Peninsula and Europe.

In addition, we have maritime connections with the main fruit exporters, which result in scheduled services with New Zealand, Costa Rica, Colombia and the Dominican Republic. The provision of scheduled services is completed with Canada and the United States.

Most of the kiwi fruit consumed in the peninsula come through the Port of Tarragona, as well as the different varieties of pineapples, bananas and avocados.

Intermodal infrastructures and services

 

To provide an output for the fruit and vegetable traffic, the Port of Tarragona has infrastructures and intermodal services that make it the best choice on the Mediterranean for distributing to the Iberian Peninsula.

In order to handle such cargos, our Port’s various terminals and facilities are equipped with: 

   Areas devoted exclusively to fruit traffic

 

 Picking services 

 

 Wharehouse tracking Systems by RF

 

 Excellent connections to the main road network

 

Control and quality

 

 

The range of services is enhanced with an extensive and modern Border Inspection Post (BIP), with all its facilities approved for the entry of fruit into the EU.

It also has specific quality controls, temperature controls, cargo tracking systems via RF and a wide range of added-value logistics services (consolidation/de-consolidation of cargos, picking services, etc).
