Info about the port: The Limassol Port is situated on the outskirts of the country’s second main city in terms of population and economic significance. It is the largest port in Cyprus, serving most of the island’s seaborne cargo and passenger traffic. It handles two thirds of the total container traffic, both locally generated and in transhipment, as well as the entire volume of grain imports. Similarly, over 90% of the country’s passenger traffic is presently served by this port. As a container port, Limassol provides two terminals with six gantry cranes and a total annual capacity of 600.000 TEUs.
