Spain - Tarragona

Overview

The Mediterranean Spanish port of Tarragona is located in the Northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, in the Catalonia region. DP World acquired the container terminal concession in mid-2008 in partnership with a major liner shipping company for their hub operations. Additional capacity is currently available to other operators and together with the port authority there are plans to expand the terminal in the coming years.

Tarragona is very well positioned to pursue its growth as a significant gateway for Spain as well as a Mediterranean hub for global shipping services. Tarragona Port currently handles 100% origin and destination cargo and serves the hinterland of northern and central Spain with the potential to expand and attract cargo seeking alternatives to nearby ports. In the immediate port hinterland both import and export cargo is readily available from numerous multi-national petro-chemical companies, amongst others, who have regional distribution centres close by. A number of Spain's major wine exporting areas are also within the catchment area.

Tarragona benefits from a deep-water port, a strong expansion potential and supporting adjacent logistic centres, as well as excellent road & rail connectivity to Barcelona, Valencia, Madrid and the Spanish hinterland markets like Zarragoza. The facility boasts some of the best refrigerated warehousing and logistics operations in Spain, located within the port complex close to our terminal.
