The port of Riga is located on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea at the mouth of the River Daugava in the Gulf of Riga
Both historically and geographically, the port is an integral part of the city of Riga. It occupies 11% of the territory of the city of Riga on both banks of the River Daugava and stretches for 15 km from the Vanshu Bridge in the very center of the city to the mouth of the river in the Gulf of Riga.
Its convenient location, providing the closest access to the sea from a large Eurasian land area, has made it possible for the city of Riga to become an important crossroads of trade routes and a thriving port throughout all centuries of its history
Today, the Port of Riga offers the fastest, safest and cheapest transport connections for cargo carriers, connecting important markets of the goods production and consumption in Europe and other parts of the Eurasian continent, including Russia and China.
The strategically advantageous geographical location, well-developed connections for all transport modes and diverse logistics solutions provide the Port of Riga with the status of a multimodal transport hub, effectively serving 200 million consumer markets and being an important distribution center in the region.
