Terminal Zárate specializes in the operation of Project cargo.

We have a highly qualified and trained team t work with large and heavy bulks. Our last generation infrastructure allows us to work efficiently in specific vessels carrying this cargo.

Project cargo is stored in a 30.000m2 bonded yard next to the dock, while waiting for customs clearance and later transfer to non bonded yard. We have access through national and provincial routes free of traffic congestion which contribute to transport heavy and voluminous cargo safely.

Our location at km111 of the Parana de las Palmas river lets us operate on barges that use the Paraguay-Paraná waterway to connect Terminal Zárate with ports in Paraguay, east Bolivia and southwestern Brazil.
