A benchmark Port on the Mediterranean
The Project Cargo traffic is currently one of the commitments our Port is pledged to as part of its strategy of traffic growth and diversification.
The Port of Tarragona is consolidating its position as one of the benchmark ports in the Mediterranean in terms of the export of special cargos, since we have specialists in all types of transport as well as qualified staff that coordinate and organise the operations from source to destination. Due to the fact that Tarragona has the largest chemical Cluster in the South of Europe, this type of cargo benefits from the powerful pool of professionals coming from Tarragona’s auxiliary chemical industry.
A wise choice
The infrastructure of the Port of Tarragona has a very remarkable feature: an excellent climate that allows almost all of the projects to be carried out in open air areas, making it possible to embark directly from the dock.
Moreover, it also has other advantages:
Extensive operational areas on the docks
Excellent road and rail accessibility
Efficient services and qualified staff for loading and unloading
Pool of qualified professionals
The construction of a Project Cargo project can involve 1,000,000 hours of work in order to be carried out, and requires a range of professional profiles such as welders, electricians, installers, engineers, etc.
The Port of Tarragona has the largest petrochemical cluster in southern Europe, which represents an advantage for the companies that carry out Project Cargo operations, since they can draw on the substantial pool of professionals from the auxiliary chemical industry in Tarragona.
In addition, these companies can count on the team of specialised technicians in the construction of this type of structures which the Port of Tarragona has.
