Port of Tarragona is located in the southern Europe largest chemical cluster – ChemMed Tarragona. It is an area of a large concentration of manufacturing and processing companies, because of its excellent location and accessibility to the inner European markets. Both north and south poles are linked to the port via pipelines. Tarragona production accounts for 25% of Spanish chemical and petrochemical production and represents the 50% of Catalonia production.
Port of Tarragona continues to be one of the most important and leading ports in Spain, with more than 32 million tonnes handled in 2018. More than 60% of the traffic is about liquid bulk, and the storage capacity of independent terminal companies are increasing. In 2018, there are about 800.000 cubic metres of capacity, and we expect to increase it to 1.5M cubic metres in the following years. The Port of Tarragona has other additional benefits, such as no congestion in both terrestrial and maritime sides and one of the deepest water depths in the Mediterranean.
