Aruba opens brand new container port
End of March, the Prime Minister of Aruba has officially opened the multi cargo port in Barcadera, Aruba (see the report on Prime Minister website).
The new port is an integral part of the infrastructure development of Aruba. A new road has also been built that connects the port with the Green Corridor, the island’s second dual highway. As soon as the first half of this project is ready, the road will open to the trucks with containers to quickly reach the main roads. The technical capacity of the container port are available on the website of Aruba Port Authority.
This new port will also contribute to the development of the third economic pillar, a knowledge-based economy. It gives the opportunity to Aruba to become a hub for Free-Zone and/or Transshipment Cargo.
