The Port of Aratu is located in the state of Bahia, in the municipality of Candeias, in the cove of Caboto, in the Bay of Aratu, near the entrance of the Cotegipe canal, in front of the east coast of the island of Maré. The port is responsible for 60% of all cargo handled in maritime modal in Bahia, so it is of great importance for Bahia’s economy, as it serves as a means of disposing of production and the entry of products to the Industrial Complex of Camaçari, the Center Industrial de Aratu (CIA) and the Ford automotive complex of Camaçari.

The Port of Aratu has significant economic importance for the State of Bahia and, consequently, for the country, supporting the processes of import and export of products.
