The Port of Seville is the only inland maritime port in Spain. It is located in one of the country’s most important cities, with more than one and a half million inhabitants living nearby, and in the main cargo hub in the south of the peninsula. It is a completely multi-modal port with sea and land connections and there is plenty of space in its 850 hectares to develop logistics and industrial activities.
It is a strategic location for the European Union and has six port terminals under concessions and three which are public, more than 4,000 metres of mooring space, one million square metres of storage and a cruise terminal in the centre of the city.
The Port of Seville specializes in a wide range of goods, including agro-food products, steel and container traffic. It is the peninsula’s logistic portal for the Canary Islands, with weekly sailings that connect Seville with the archipelago, and the railway connections are very important, with routes from Seville to Madrid, Bilbao, Extremadura, Valencia, Córdoba and Sines (Portugal).
It has the first Logistics Activity Zone in Andalusia. Its location, next to the Container Terminal and Railway Terminal, make this area a leading logistics platform with excellent connections.
The Port of Seville is the ideal setting for the installation and development of key sectors for the economy of Andalusia. The metal and machinery industry and those linked with renewable energies are established segments in the Shipyard Area. It is where offshore wind generators are built, parts of bridges, catwalks and aqueducts and major metal structures.
The Free Trade Zone is yet another attraction of the Port. It has enormous capacity for development to drive new industries to create business synergies.
The Port of Seville is an important motor for the economic and social development of Andalusia. 200 companies create over 23,000 jobs in the surrounding areas. This industry represents more than 1,100 million euros for the economy.
