The development of the city of Kavala made the construction of the new port outside the city necessary. According to general and special studies conducted since 1966, the proposal prevailedof constructing a new modern port in Nea Karvali, 8 km east of the city with direct connection to the Egnatia Odos (part of the Transeuropean network).
The construction work for the port “Filippos Β’” began in 1990. Before the completion of extension projects the commercial port has a platform of 400m length, 11,5m depth at the platform and an overall space of 50.000m2 for the management and storage of freights. The existing infrastructure can simultaneously serve 2 ships of 190m length and a Ro-Ro ship.
After the completion of the expansion works in March 2019, the commercial port has platforms of 910m length, 12m depth at the platforms and an overall space of about 282.000m2 for the management and storage of freights.
Our vision concerning the commercial port “Filippos B’” is to make it the main gate towards east Balkan, emphasizing on the provision of value-added services.
