The Paul Gauguin cruise line included Cartagena in the route of the luxury ship Tere Moana, confirming the importance the walled city is gaining as an international tourist destination.

On Sunday, a total of five vessels from distinguished companies visited the city; the foray into the cruise market has become one of the main achievements of the Port of Cartagena, which seeks to capture the attention of renowned international lines .

The city government interprets this move as very important, entrenching Cartagena as major tourist destination in the Caribbean will boost the national tourism sector, with the corresponding benefits to the transportation, trade and gastronomy sectors.

CRUISE

The Tere Moana, left the island of St. Martin in the Caribbean, then from Cartagena will cross the Panama Canal and sail to the island of Coiba, Panama, and then to Marenco, in Costa Rica, and Puerto Caldera in Costa Rica.

Paul Gauguin Cruises is a specialized line of cruises to exotic destinations with warm weather and delivers services to customers that even the larger ships can not offer.  In fact, the maximum capacity of the Tere Moana, which was recently renovated, is only 90 people.

The other four boats that arrived over the weekend to Cartagena were: Seven Seas Mariner, a ship with 700 people with luxury features and marble European style tubs, gyms and jogging track, Coral Princess, Island Princess and The World, known for feeling like home with gyms and personal trainers, tennis courts, golf courses and luxury jewelers who travel the world, as they own several passenger cabins.

The Port of Cartagena expects 192 cruises in the 2013 season, not counting the first landfalls of the following ships: Wind Star, Disney Wonder, MS Columbus 2, Artania and Tere Moana.

Record Year for Container Movement

Containers in Cartagena

The Port of Cartagena reached a record of 2,018,389 containers moved at the end of 2012, positioning the port as the first in the country to achieve such progress.

The forecast for 2012 predicted  two million containers compared to 1,672,041 recorded at the end of 2011. This figure places Cartagena in the select group of the most important ports in the world and shows, once again, the country’s dedication to  international trade.

The expansion of the Panama Canal, expected to be ready in the first half of 2015, will allow 8.4 million containers to pass through each year, compared to 6.5 million presently.  The Port of Cartagena is one of the beneficiaries, and will be useful in  consolidating its position as the primary global hub for the Caribbean.

$45M investment

Area being prepared for new logistics center

The Chilean firm “Compas” announced a $45 million (USD) investment into the port of Cartagena for a new Logistics Center.

The partners in this project purchased a lot of 41 acres, on the new road that goes towards Barú, which will be used to develop a comprehensive logistics center.  Among other services, it will feature warehouses and a distribution depot,  areas for consolidating and deconsolidation; a yard for full and empty containers, storage area for wheeled vehicles and general cargo as well as extensive areas for installation of new industries related to foreign trade.

The 115 kilometers of the navigable Canal Dique, offers enormous potential to mobilize goods in cargo ships.  Furthermore, the possibility of higher amounts freight discount means that logistics costs are between 30% and 38% lower than terrestrial transport.

Those that use this waterway now have satellite navigation assistance, ensuring mobility 24 hours a day.  Therefore, cargo transport through the Canal is feasible, safe and profitable, with positive economic, social and environmental effects.
