DSC 0057

The Colombian port of Santa Marta already has a creditable track record as a deepwater multipurpose port, able to handle a wide range of traffic, from containers and rolling cargo to dry and liquid bulks and coal. In recent years the port has built on its status as a multipurpose facility by investing in new dedicated facilities for handling specific types of cargo.

Following the demise of the Colpuertos state monopoly in Colombia, the Port of Santa Marta was established in 1993 as a mixed-capital company by 60 organizations that included banana traders as well as shipping companies and local authorities.

At its inception the port company focused its efforts on the agro-industrial sector and particularly the banana-producing regions of Urabá and Magdalena.

Over the years, however, the Port of Santa Marta has invested heavily in the development of a modern and efficient multipurpose port able to provide handling and logistic support services for a wide range of cargo including vehicles and reefer containers.
