Cádiz, Spain (PortSEurope) July 7, 2020 – Autoridad Portuaria de la Bahía de Cádiz (APBC – Port Authority of Cadiz) will lower the merchandise rate in 2021, reducing the correction coefficient that is applied to them from 1.18 to 1.15 for the first time. Likewise, it plans to increase incentives for road and container traffic and maintains the discounts for the tenth consecutive year for the
rest of the traffic. The proposal for correction coefficients and bonuses was approved by the Board of Directors and will be included in the draft of the Business Plan for next year, agreed with Puertos del Estado. In order to increase the port’s competitiveness in both container and road traffic, an increase in the bonus is proposed from 40% to 60% in both the rate for the ship and the merchandise in the case of the container terminal for international transit traffic depending on the percentage of traffic in the total movements of the terminal. Likewise, for regular line Ro-Ro traffic (no import or export), the bonus is increased from 10% to 20% in the rate for the ship from the first stop, while for the rate of the merchandise it may go up to 40%.
