Port of Lisbon is the third-largest port in Portugal, visited by more than 2000 vessels every year and has a container capacity of more than 1Million TEU. Its 14 terminals, that handled more than 11 million tons in 2022, allow the port to receive different types of cargo: containers, liquid, and solid bulk and breakbulk and offers a complete network of connections with the main ports of the world. The state-of-the-art cruise terminal in 2022 saw around 500,000 passengers and 327 calls. With a unique location in the Tagus estuary, holding vast areas of Natura 2000 network, and surrounded by 11 municipalities, the port must assemble economic, social, cultural, and environmental interests.
