Port of Vado

Port of Vado

Since the 1960s, the Port of Vado has developed to the west of the city of Vado Ligure and today port operations cover a surface area of approximately 350,000 m2. Over the years, the port has focused on the fruit and ferry commodity sectors, while the natural harbour provided unloading facilities for petroleum products transported to industries along the coast and oil refineries in the hinterland.

Thanks to the natural deepwater in Vado harbour (over 22 m), construction works are underway to build a new deep-sea container terminal for ultra-large container vessels which will open at the end of 2019.
