Guatemala Port (port code: GTGUA), locally also known as Guate Port, is Guatemala’s largest Pacific port. It is situated in a mountain valley in the south-central part of the country.
As an international container shipping port, the port is able to accept both imports and exports through multiple terminals, with both roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) and container services. It accepts approximately 358,000 containers of various size every year.
The port is thriving and is responsible for a wide majority of the country’s maritime traffic beginning during the 20th century. Because of the country’s emerging manufacturing economy, significant imports into Guatemala through the port include construction equipment and gin machinery. The port’s efficiency and size are able to handle many tons of equipment and allows the economy of Guatemala to flourish with the increase of manufacturing and construction equipment coming into the country through RoRo and container shipping.
The port can accept all types of construction equipment, such as cranes, bulldozers, and dump trucks, as well as manufacturing equipment, like gin machinery. With new terminals being added to this port, the port will be able to accept about 340,000 more containers annually when the facility becomes operational.
