Terminal and private port, located immediately adjacent downstream, and the FRIGOFRUT installations located north of the latter, with all of them acting under the same system as the ZONA FRANCA DE NUEVA PALMIRA (Nueva Palmira Free Zone). The port premises have silos for agricultural bulk storage with a maximum capacity of around 72.000 tons, managed by the TERMINALES GRANELERAS URUGUAYAS S.A. – TGU Consortium.
