The Port of Lisbon is situated in the most important geographical area of production and consumption in Portugal. The large polarisation region of Lisbon, corresponding to 30% of the national territory, has more than 4 million residents and 40% of employment and national businesses, and is also responsible for 50 per cent of the wealth generated in the country.   

Being a port inserted in the urban fabric, with a strong territorial diffusion, the Port of Lisboa integrates important national logistic axes.

The main logistic and industrial axes include, on the north bank of the Tagus, the West Regions, Leiria, Castelo Branco and all the Lezíria do Tejo, with emphasis in the latter, to the Sacavém - Entroncamento corridor, passing by the Bobadela, Alverca, Alhandra, Vila Franca de Xira, Carregado, Azambuja and Almeirim.

On the south bank, the municipalities of Almada, Barreiro, Seixal, Benavente, Coruche and the Évora - Campo Maior axis stand out due to their logistical and industrial nature.
