Leixões, Portugal (PortSEurope) November 27, 2018 – Leixões port has started receiving vehicles from Volkswagen AG’s Autoeuropa car plant in Palmela, 30 km south of Lisbon. This is due to the ongoing strike by stevedorers at Setúbal port.
Around 700 vehicles from the plant have been diverted to Leixões port from the plant, and the Leixões Logistic Platform expects to have space for 5,000 vehicles by year-end.
The Port of Leixões is the main Portuguese port in Ro-Ro cargo. In 2017, Ro-Ro Cargo at Leixões grew 18% with the handling of more than 1 million tons of commodities.
