Located in a mountain valley in the south-central part of the country, Guatemala City, or Guate, is the capital of Guatemala. Guate is not only an important metropolitan center for Guatemala but for all of Central America, as it is the most populous city in the region. Aiding with this regional significance is Guatemala City’s international container shipping port. The port of Guatemala City is able to accept both imports and exports through multiple terminals, with both roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) and container services.
Because of the country’s emerging manufacturing economy, significant imports into Guatemala through the port of Guatemala City include construction equipment and gin machinery. The Port’s efficiency and size are able to handle many tons of equipment and allow the economy of Guatemala to flourish with the increase of manufacturing and construction equipment coming into the country through RoRo and container shipping.
