Currently, the Port of Gijón is Spain’s main bulk carrier port and one of the most important of all the Atlantic Arc, thanks mainly to imports of coal and iron ore from countries such as the United States of America, Brazil, Russia, Canada for the steel plants and thermal power stations. Also important are the inbound shipments of liquid bulk, as well as a wide variety outbound shipments including cement and general merchandise, represented mainly by container transport.

One of the main expansions of the port took place between 2005 and 2010 with the construction in El Musel of the Enlargement Project, which, starting from Cape Torres, has allowed 170 hectares of land to be gained and 175 hectares of calm waters, approximately doubling what had been carried out since 1892-1893, while at the same time increasing the draft to more than 23 meters deep.

The evolution of the Port of Gijón has been a constant in recent years as regards its different services, facilities and commercial activities, and its traditional services have seen the addition of fishing, cruise ship traffic, and water sports, while not forgetting shipbuilding (shipyards).
