The Port of Manta is a natural deep-sea port capable of accommodating the world’s largest vessels. It is located approximately one hour from international shipping routes, making it an ideal first port of call in the region for global shipping lines. Being the closest port to Asia, the new terminal will also benefit from the growing trade activities between the two regions.
