Valencia, Spain (PortSEurope) January 16, 2018 – Valencia port has set as one of its priority objectives to develop railway connectivity as it is an element of added value, competitiveness and future for the ports it manages, especially Valencia and Sagunto.
In the eleven months through November, a total of 158,613 TEUs were handled by land in the ports under the management of the authority, 16.3% more than in the like period of last year. This growth, more than notable, places the railway traffic’s share at 7.24% of land transport.
The percentage, which has grown slightly compared to last year (7.01%), remains small in relation to the objectives pursued by the institution. The strategic target of Autoridad Portuaria de Valencia (APV – Valencia port authority) is not achievable unless the improvement actions of the railway network and connection are made clear.
