Rosario City is modern and the financial and commercial center for one of the biggest grain belts.
The port began operations around 1850. Many of the existing installations and wharfs were built 60 or 70 yeas ago and are now under repair, but others have been modernized and new ones have been added and are being built.
The depth of the water at the different berths and wharfs varies and depends on the height of the river, but vessels can usually load to the maximum draught permitted to navigate between Rosario and the River Plate.
The following remarks must be taken into consideration:
a) If shifting alongside berth is necessary, a launch and linemen are employed, but a pilot is only required if vessels are shifted with main engine.
b) Use of tugs is not necessary at Rosario and San Lorenzo/San Martin.
c) For mooring/unmooring, a launch and linemen are employed, and same are available 24 hours a day/seven days a week.
d) The normal working hours for Rosario and San Lorenzo/San Martin are: Monday to Friday, 0600 to 1800 hours and Saturdays from 0600 to 1200 hours.
