Steel and iron products

The market which supplies the construction and automobile industry

 

The movement of steel products has experienced significant growth in the Port of Tarragona over the past 10 years, reaching a figure close to 550,000 tonnes.

Most of the products in this group correspond to the import of coils, rolled products, profiles and beams, used as raw materials for the automobile and construction industry. Another significant item corresponds to scrap metal and metal remains.
