Great activity at Palma's Port

Palma, 12/08/2016

Palma's Port is the largest port managed by Ports of the Balearic Islands, so it concentrates much more services and activities than the rest of docks. The capital's port is especially known for its great sport nautical activity and for being the main destination for cruise ships. In addition, it is highly important for the residents of the island, as it is the port that provides them with most of the products needed in Majorca.

The activity at Palma's Port is intense and regular: 24 hours a day 365 days a year. According to registered numbers, the port receives approximately 2.300.000 passengers every year including regular shipping lines and cruise ships, 170.000 passenger vehicles and 130.000 vehicles as goods, 3.000 merchant ships of 35 nationalities, 1 million tons of oil-bearing products, 200.000 tons of cement and 6.500.000 of diverse goods.

Thus, port services are essential for managing all this activity; from the different facilities for loading and unloading goods and the passengers flow from regular shipping lines and cruise ships, to, in the areas of the port, the public institutions that can be found here, like the territorial delegation of the National Agency of Meteorology, the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centres, the Customs administration, military government, National Police, Health Service and the offices of the Balearic Islands' Port Authority, among others.

Other private institutions operate at the port, like those providing loading and unloading, tow and residue management services; and other companies offering repairing, maintenance and diverse services offered at the port's facilities.
