In the middle of the Bay of Biscay, equidistant between Brest and Finisterre, the Port of Bilbao is central in the European Atlantic. For almost 700 years, this central location has made
Bilbao a privileged link with the main ports in both the American continent and the north of Europe.
An offer of regular services connects it with 800 ports worldwide.
The Port of Bilbao works with all classes of goods and vessels. It is open and operative 24 hours a day, every day of the year. It has no problems of drafts or tides.
The Port’s influence stretches to the Iberian Peninsula and into the south of France – a vast area whose epicentre is in the metropolitan area of Bilbao. Within a 200-kilometre radius 4 million people live, and more than 20 million within 400. In addition, it is an excellent route on the way to the eastern European market.
