As far as rivers are concerned, the Rio de La Plata, Uruguay, Parana, and Paraguay Rivers are the main waterways in the country. There are almost 60 port terminals on the Argentine bank of these rivers with various degrees of infrastructure, operation capacity and specialization. The completed dredging and buoying works already assisted in the considerable reduction of freight as it allows vessels with higher draft. In the past years, many new port terminals were built along the Parana River, mainly concentrated around San Lorenzo and Rosario municipalities in the province of Santa Fe because of growth in agroindustry. Foreign trade through waterways reached about 110,000,000 tons in 2015 which was %2.4 higher than 2014 figures.
