The Port of Vigo has been established as a powerful economic engine for the city and its area. It manages a freight traffic above 4 million tonnes whose value exceeds 12 000 million euros. The Port Authority is about to celebrate 140 years in charge of its management which indicates that it is a consolidated construction, capable of generating wealth throughout the metropolitan area, in Galicia and in Spain. This can be achieved not only due to a strong and competitive industrial and economic fabric but also to its privileged geophysics conditions, in terms of location (situated in the middle of the Atlantic) as well as its natural conditions such as shelter, depth of water and canals of entrance.
