Málaga, Spain (PortSEurope) July 3, 2020 – Eurogate Group Terminals, concessionaire company of the Malaga Maritime Station, in close collaboration with Autoridad Portuaria de Málaga (APM – Port Authority of Málaga), has obtained the Global Safe Site certification by Bureau Veritas, world leader in inspection, certification and testing services. The certification consists of carrying out an exhaustive verification of the new procedures established at the Maritime Station, disinfection and
hygiene plans, organizational protocols and protection measures for the terminal’s workers, users and passengers. The President of the Malaga Port Authority, Carlos Rubio Basabe, highlighted the importance of this certification, since it guarantees the application of strict protocols that will allow the use of the port facilities with the maximum guarantee of safety and health. Among the different measures implemented, worth mentioning are the strict access controls and temperature control for both passengers and vehicles, disinfection and cleaning protocols before and after each operation, as well as the horizontal signage of new boarding flows and disembark, maintaining at all times, the established social distancing rules. The certification company Bureau Veritas has already certified the current shipping companies present in the Port of Malaga, such as Armas-Trasmediterránea and Balearia, with which the achievement of this certificate guarantees the creation of a safe “corridor” throughout the logistics chain of passenger and vehicle transport. For achieving this certification, a detailed training and awareness plan on prevention measures against the COVID-19 has been implemented for terminal workers and employees, along with the creation of a passenger service with updated information on the operations, security measures adopted at the terminal and the protocols implemented therein. With these actions, the Malaga passenger terminal goes one step further to establish itself as a reference port in terms of quality and services and continues to attract more and more users who decide use facilities that advocate service excellence and a clear focus on customers and their needs.
