In Colombia, construction is due to begin in March 2016 of Uraba´ Port, which is known locally as Antioquia port. Phase 1 opening is mooted for 2018, with the project being bankrolled by Puertos, Inversiones y Obras SAS at a cost of $400 million.

Initially conceived of as a dry bulk port, it will now be developed as a multipurpose facility. The port, which covers an area of 130ha, will have 1,600 metres of quayside and four berths, with alongside water depth of 14 metres.
