Aruba Ports Authority

To update and upgrade the Aruba Ports Authority's visual identity on the web to match the upcoming Cruise and Container Ports development project.


Aruba Ports Authority N.V. is a limited liability company established in 1981, which shares are 100% owned by the Government of Aruba. The aim of the Aruba Port Authority is to provide a safe, efficient, accessible, and inter-modal transportation system that ensures the mobility of people and goods, and enhances and/or preserves economic prosperity and the quality of life for the island.

APA N.V. is responsible for building, managing, maintaining and exploiting the Oranjestad & Barcadera harbors and corresponding waterways, roads and assets. The security of all premises and the promotion and development of Cruise Tourism are also the responsibility of the Port Authority.


With it's upcoming US$ 62 Million Dollar Container Port Development project which involves moving the island's commercial port to the port of Barcadera, and the upgrade of Aruba's cruise port in Oranjestad, the new design for the Aruba Ports Authority website had to reflect the differences between the Oranjestad Cruise Port and the Barcadera Cargo Port, as well as making access to important news and statistics easier for users. The new website provides users with information such as Cruise Statistics, current weather conditions, and information on applying for port access.
