The Port of Tarragona is located in one of the most important industrial areas in the Mediterranean, at the confluence of two zones of outstanding economic growth: the Mediterranean arc and the Ebro corridor. It is an area with Spain’s most important Petrochemical complex and a large concentration of manufacturing and processing Industries, that coexist alongside a first-class commercial and tourism sector.
In this area of the country lies the biggest concentration of industrial and logistic companies in Spain, and there are some future projects for more investments of these sectors, as a consequence of the excellent location and accessibility from the area to the inner European markets.

The Port region is seeing some important investments taking place, such as the TAVs (high-speed train) that will connect Madrid to the French border and Tarragona and Valencia to the French border. The Port of Tarragona and its hinterland are also located at a point where the country’s main land communication routes converge. This combination of business activity and its location makes the Port, a key strategic enclave on the access routes to the Iberian Peninsula and the European Continent and establish it as one of the major economic driving forces of the area.

Owing to all these characteristics, the Port of Tarragona is one of the best located Ports, not only by its proximity, but also because it offers a wide space without traffic jams and also easy in reach.  The Port of Tarragona, which handled 32 million tons of cargo in the year of 2014, continues to be one of the most important and leading Ports in Spain, the Mediterranean and it is also a major Cargo Gateway in the European Union.

The Chemical Cluster in the Mediterranean Region focuses on the potential of the industry as the first in the Mediterranean area and in the Southern Europe.  The aim of ChemMed Tarragona is to develop and enhance the appeal and competiveness of the area for industry, research and logistics in the chemical plant sector.
