Although the history of CONTERMAS is recent, with the beginning of its activities in 2017, it relies on the history of the Port of Salvador, given the importance of such facilities for the formation of Brazil.
As the seat of the first colonial capital, for two centuries Salvador was the main destination of the vessels that crossed the Atlantic in the route between the Old World and the New World, having since then played an important role as a commercial warehouse.
Hence the history of Bahian port infrastructure has been a highlight in the development of the city since before the founding of the Organized Port of Salvador in 1913, and continues to be so to the present day, due to the contribution of the movement of goods to the state's foreign trade.
For nautical tourism it is no different. At present, the Port of Salvador stands out as one of the main destinations of the cruise routes on the Brazilian coast. And such importance motivated the public investments for the construction of a new passenger terminal.
At this point, the New meets the Past. This is how the project of a terminal with a modern and avant-garde appearance appeared, but was designed to rescue local history through the revitalization of the "Salvadoran" port area and the valorization of the Bay of All Saints.
Forerunner of the management of the new Salvador Maritime Terminal, CONTERMAS uses this tradition to fulfill the objective of integrating the Port to the city of Salvador and consolidate the importance of tourism to the State, investing in the operation of the Terminal and qualifying the service to cruisers visiting the city.
