Glan Port, officially considered as a terminal under the Port Management Office-General Santos, is located along the coasts of Sarangani Bay, particularly at the head of the Canalasan Cove in Barangay Poblacion, Municipality of Glan, Sarangani Province.
It now serves as an alternative conduit serving the Jose Abad Santos-Glan-Sarangani Cooperation Triangle (JAGS-CT). Its basic structure was rehabilitated in PhP 20 M project by the PPA completed in 2008. Such is part of the authority's vision to help propel trade, transportation and tourism potentials with Tahuna and Manado Islands in the neighboring Republic of Indonesia as part of the country's links to the Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP EAGA).
Glan Municipality is bounded on the east by Davao Del Sur, on the north by Malapatan, Sarangani Province, on the west by South China Sea, and to the south by Sarangani Bay. Vessels approaching the Port of Glan pass through the Celebes Sea before entering the Sarangani Bay.
Glan Port boasts of a deep natural harbor. Vessels enter the Sarangani Bay then approach towards the Port of Glan.
