At our core, we value integrity, reliability, and customer satisfaction, and we strive to exceed expectations with every shipment.


We are a leading provider of innovative and reliable maritime transportation solutions for businesses across industries. With years of experience in the shipping and logistics industry, we have established a reputation for excellence and are committed to delivering the highest level of service to our clients.

We also offer warehouse services, having more than 65,000 square feet of storage space in Ponce and 100,000 square feet in San Juan.

We are a purely Puerto Rican company and we have witnessed and participated in the technological changes that have occurred in our more than 85 years of existence.


We are pioneers in the use of the most innovative port technology mechanisms, with the most modern equipment and machinery. Our communications system is among the best in the industry. These effective methods and the disposition towards industrial technology are witnesses of the ability of Puerto Ricans to compete in international spheres, offering the best possible service in first order ranks.

In the last 10 years we have invested in modern machinery, cranes, information systems, terminal infrastructure, security, and electrical system. We have 4 Paceco container cranes, currently the largest on the market, with greater capacity and modernity in San Juan.

Today, Ayala Colón serves the country from its operation center in Ponce, and since 1978 in San Juan.
Our company carries out its operations nationally and internationally. It employs more than 100 full-time people, including professionals in the administrative and operational areas.
We have offered stowage services, specializing in loose cargo, heavy cargo, oversized cargo, containers, and handling of dangerous cargo. Our company has been serving the people of Puerto Rico for more than 85 years.
