Interview with Chairman of the Port of Algeciras


What is your vision for the Port of Algeciras for the next decade? What are the main investment projects in the coming years?

Our aim is to lead a competitive and sustainable port and logistics offer which creates added value, in close cooperation with customers, and contributing to the benefit of the regional economy and employment. Taking into account that around 30.000 jobs are directly or indirectly related to the port and logistics activity and considering the high ratio of unemployment of the Campo de Gibraltar area, meeting these goals is somehow a must.

Continuing consolidating Algeciras as a strategic maritime and logistics bridge between the two continents, Europe and Africa, is another strategic objective. In this scenario, we have designed the “Hercules Plan”, consisting of a set of initiatives in order to continue developing ro-ro traffic as a support to growing sectors, such as the automotive one.

Developing business in line with sustainable development is also another main objective.
