Boluda Maritime Terminals has already started the works of the first container terminal in the port of Santander.

Boluda Shipping is starting the construction of the logistics platform which will be called Boluda Maritime Terminals Santander, and which is expected to come into operation in January 2023. The concession for the works and exploitation of the maritime terminal was awarded by the Santander Port Authority at the end of 2020 to NSCT Investment, a company owned by the corporation. Dragados was the awarded company for the execution of the works, which began last April.

Boluda Maritime Terminals Santander will occupy an area of approximately 67,000 square metres and will have a mooring line of 472 metres. Apart from the vessels of other companies that carry out the stowage and unstowage of their goods, Boluda Lines, the shipping company of Boluda Shipping, plans to make one port of call per week, with connections in ports such as Villagarcía, Leixoes, Setúbal, Las Palmas, Tenerife, and ports on the west coast of Africa.

Boluda Maritime Terminals Santander's commitment is to maintain an annual import and export traffic of goods of at least 35,000 TEUs during the first five years of the concession and, from that year onwards, to reach 45,000 TEUs per year.

The maritime company is contemplating an investment of 20 million euros in civil works, installations, building and the purchase of machinery. An investment that, together with the equipment repair and maintenance workshops, is estimated to reach 38.5 million euros during the 40 years established for the concession.

With this initiative, the port of Santander joins the ports of Las Palmas, Tenerife, Fuerteventura, La Palma, Seville, Cadiz and Villagarcía where the Boluda subsidiary already manages its own container terminals. In addition, from September, the terminal at the port of Arrecife is expected to complete its works and start operating under the name of Boluda Maritime Terminals Lanzarote.
