Port of Azua was built in 1959 by Rafael Leonidas Trujillo. The harbor has two terminals, one of those is utilized by Compañía de Gas Licuado de Petróleo Opuvisa (Petroleum Gas Company) which has installed containers of gas.
The other terminal is used for exportation of fruits (bananas), minerals and others, and occasionally general cargo operations are handled, too.
