The Port of Tarragona has become one of the fastest growing ports for paper and pulp, not just in Spain but in the entire Mediterranean area — and Euroports is supporting this growth.

Euroports has increased its paper and pulp storage capacity in the port of Tarragona, Spain by 25%, bringing its total pulp and paper storage capacity at this terminal to 30,000 m2. Euroports’ bonded terminal has a dust-free area, a terminal length of about 300 m and 16.5 m draft.

With its ten forest products terminals in five different countries, Euroports is considered a major player in providing maritime supply chain solutions to the pulp and paper industry. One of the company’s focus areas for growth in this industry is its forest products terminal in the port of Tarragona, Spain.

With its warehousing and value-added services specialised in handling pulp and paper reels, Euroports not only plays an important role in managing the flows from South America and Northern Europe destined for domestic consumption but also for transshipment to other countries in the Mediterranean area, such as Turkey, Egypt, Greece, Romania and North Africa. With this extended storage capacity, Euroports is expected to handle nearly 700kt of pulp and paper in 2018.

Due to its long-term expertise, the company has build strong relationships with many of the largest pulp and paper producers and shipping lines in the world, and is determined to continue to serve them by delivering best in class maritime supply chain solutions.
