Buenos Aires Port Modernization Plan

The Embassy is pleased to inform you about the “Buenos Aires Port Modernization Plan” of the Ministry of Transport and the General Ports Administration of the Argentine Republic.

“The Buenos Aires Port is Argentina's main port for loading containers, with traffic reaching 900 KTEU (2017). It currently has three container terminals under concession agreements due to expire by may 2020. As a result, the Buenos Aires Port plans to launch an international bidding process in February 2019 for the concession of the new container terminal.

The Buenos Aires Port intends to renew the port following a flexible design that can adapt to the needs of the next fifty years in a more competitive fashion, by integrating into the world and maintaining a healthy relationship with the community, while observing environmental and quality standards.

The Modernization Plan follows the guidelines of the Strategic Sustainability Plan and the Security Plan of the Buenos Aires Port. Modernization must be both sustainable and safe.

Progress will be made during the next ten years on building an outdoor terminal, in line with the world's main ports. The goal is to build the best possible port in the shortest possible time, without affecting operations, while increasing container flow.”
