The Port of Lisbon boasts a privileged localisation, near the main consumption centre of Portugal. Featuring three specialised terminals in this market segment, with modern infrastructures and accessibilities, and with global capacity of around one million TEU, the Port of Lisbon is therefore a preference in the transposition to the productive and consuming hinterland of the Lisbon and Vale do Tejo region. Container traffic is particularly important for Lisbon: it has regular cabotage services to the main North European and Spanish ports, as well as a large number of direct services carried out by the main container ship lines.


National ship owners also operate this traffic, connecting Lisbon to the Azores, Madeira and Africa (mostly Portuguese-speaking countries). The fact that the port of Lisbon integrated the «CSI – Container Security Initiative» in January 2006 - setting up of equipment for non intrusive inspection to containers -, reinforced the privileged intervention that it already carried out in the commercial exchange with the USA. Lisbon is also an important centre for storage and handling of bulk.


Featuring various specialised terminals and duly equipped as pertains safety and respect for the environment, the Port of Lisbon features facilities that are perfectly complementary: some are more adequate for local cargo and others for “deep-sea” and “transhipment”, as well as for strategic stocking. There is capacity for the offshore handling of cargo by using floating cranes and barges for the river transhipment with direct and indirect deliveries.
