A key to prosperity in our region

A key factor to achieving the social and economical development of our region is facilitating the mobility of goods and people.

Our Port is a symbol of economic and social development for our region. And this is why we approach management with a high sense of responsibility as well as with a great enthusiasm to face our future challenges in cooperation with our human resources and with the rest of our partners. We are living in an extremely complexed environment in which our greatest investment endeavours for the extension of our facilities go hand in hand with major significant changes in world economy, in international business, and in the role played by Ports. In this context, our Port has occupied first place within the region and increased its share in traffic along the entire Atlantic coast of Spain, thus being able to offer services that allow it to stand head to head with the best in terms of facilities, prices, services and excellence management models.In this way, we will be able to maximise our results with a triple purpose: obtaining a maximum performance of our resulting port capacity, diversifying our activity into business lines that will have a greater economical and social impact on our region and reducing the carbon footprint of the land and sea transport related to our traffic.
