Barcelona, Spain (PortSEurope) April 28, 2020 – The Port of Barcelona has provided two new spaces available for port operators for the storage of full, long-stay, import containers. Two areas of 3 and 2 hectares, respectively, are located within the port area, specifically in Section VI of the Ronda del Port and in the Moll Príncep d’Espanya. The port is responding to the needs of
its clients to find spaces that can accommodate import containers that need to be stored by a longer than usual period until they leave for their final destination The Port of Barcelona already announced on April 3 the approval of an extraordinary flat rate import container storage aimed at reducing the extraordinary costs that have importers due to alarm status. Now, with this new measure, the Catalan port wants to solve a problem of customers who require additional spaces for the storage of these containers. Barcelona is one of the European ports faced with container/cargo storage issues. Most leading ports have remained operational, handling the loading and unloading of visiting ships, and they have invested huge sums in reducing handling times – transferring cargo and containers onto railway wagons as fast as possible for transport to markets in other parts of Europe. This process has been massively hindered by reduced rail services and a variety of border crossing issues in Europe, which means that a lot of cargo cannot be delivered and requires storage at ports. Also, demand has collapsed and this cargo requires storage. This situation is set to come to a head in the next few weeks as vessels arrive from Asia, ships which left their ports before the Covid-19 crisis developed in Europe. Copyright (C) PortSEurope.
