Valle del Cauca is geostrategically located on the Colombian southwest, and has the Country’s most important port on the Pacific, as well as the main port for International Trading operations of the Country (except for mining and energy products): The Port of Buenaventura.  This port has three important port terminals and it is a forced passage for shipping companies that cover maritime routes between the North and South hemispheres, and its proximity to the Panama Canal facilitates East –West interconnections, and access to both oceans.

Valle del Cauca is the only multimodal platform of the country that comprises:  A port on the Pacific Ocean, a railway (500km of railroads) that connects to one of the port terminals, 5 regional airports and an international one with more than 80 international weekly flights.  Likewise, it has the best roadway infrastructure of the Country, making this one the most cost-efficient and strategic regions for the development of logistic activities.  There are also 6 free trade zones in the area, and more than 40 industrial parks.

Buenaventura Port, located in the Colombian Pacific, is through where most of the raw material and imported goods enter the Country (14,6 million tons -except transshipments-) which are later distributed to the main markets of the Country: Bogota, Medellin, Cali among other main cities. This key port represent more than 60% of the internal market in a country with the second biggest population of South America (more than 48 million people) and a growing middle class which makes up 30.5% of the population.
