A traditional point of distribution towards the south and southwest of the country, Bahía Blanca has excellent road and rallway connections. Five highways connect the city in all directions as also do the Ferrocarril Pampeano and Ferrosur Roca railways.

The Bahía Blanca port installations consist of a number of terminals spreading 25 km. along the coastline on the northern part of the Bahía Blanca estuary. Coming west from the Atlantic Ocean the SBM buoys for the handling of hydrocarbons can be found off Punta Ancla and Punta Cigueña, followed by the Puerto Rosales and Puerto Belgrano Naval Base.

Argentina has a coastline of 4.000 km. in length and two important navigable rivers, the Paraná and the Uruguay, which before joining up into the River Plate, they go through considerable industrial and rural areas.

The communication and transport needs generated a maritime development which includes a hundred of ports which can be classified into two main types, river navigation from the Port of Iguazú to the Port of La Plata; and maritime navigation from the Port of Mar del Plata in the Province of Buenos Aires to the Port of Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego.

In 1993 the government passes Law Nº 24,093, known as "Law on Port Activities" related to the management and operation of all state and private ports on the national territory.

LAW 24.093: ARGENTINE PORTS

In line with the deregulation policies being the government, Decree 769/93 was promulgated on 22.4.93 whereby Law 24.093 came into effect. By this law the State relinquished control of all ports directly in its charge which were admininistered by the General Port Administration (AGP).

Law 24.093 also states that at the ports of Bahía Blanca, Quequén, etc. These societies so formed should assure the particiation of importers, exporters, barge or ship operators, stevedoring contractors, ship or cargo service operators as well as port labour. At the same time the provincial government and the municipal authority within who´s jurisdiction the port is located, must also be represented.
