The Port of Tarragona benefits from the connections offered by its high-value, geo-strategic location as a major crossroads. With its position on the Mediterranean corridor leading towards Europe and as a natural point of access to Spain’s interior along the Ebro Valley, Tarragona is an unavoidable waypoint for many of the routes that join the northern and southern ports, whether by road or by rail. It also provides easy links with primary commercial and industrial destinations throughout the Iberian peninsula.

Major hub for the chemical industry

Tarragona is home to a cluster of more than 100 companies in the chemical industry within a 15-kilometre radius, which has helped build its reputation as southern Europe’s chemical hub. Direct rail connections with the industrialised areas of northern Europe and the natural export point of DP World Tarragona have helped consolidate this industry’s significant presence in the region. Other sectors with a major presence in the port’s hinterland include:

  • Agriculture and food products
  • Industrial and consumer goods
  • Furniture
