San Pedro is a city of 50,000 inhabitants, located approximately 100 km from Rosario and 250 km from Buenos Aires. It is in the midst of an important farming and fruit producing area (specially peaches and citrus). There is little industrial activity, except for some fruit processing and packing plants. It is connected to the NCA Railway and the Buenos Aires -Rosario Highway (Highway Nº9, 12 km away). A provincial highway connects San Pedro with the farming area in the province of Buenos Aires.

Port general description:

The principal port activity is the loading of grain and agricultural by-products, and in 1997, 37 ships loaded 660.000 ton (Wheat 200.000 ton, maize 447.000 ton, soybeans 13.000 ton), also 20.600 ton fertilizers were imported. Occasionally, due to low river condition, vessels bound for Villa Constitución or San Nicolás with imports of iron ore or other bulk cargoes unload at San Pedro.
