Bilbao, Spain (PortSEurope) July 9, 2018 – Noatum Container Terminal Bilbao has adapted its quality management and environmental management certificates to the new versions of the international standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, after successfully passing the certification audits last April. The company has also been engaged since 2016 in two large-scale projects, aimed at improving the quality of its services and reducing its environmental
impact. Both the recent opening of the new automatic truck access doors to the terminal (with the consequent reduction of queues and waiting times), and the future expansion of the railway terminal, will result in a significant reduction of emissions to the atmosphere (GEI) and other polluting gases (NOx and particles), as well as other environmental alterations improvements. Noatum Container Terminal Bilbao is one of the largest container terminal of the Atlantic region of southern Europe. It serves as the ideal gateway for the transportation of containers throughout the Iberian peninsula and southwest of France. Noatum Container Terminal Bilbao is part of Noatum Ports SLU, a leading maritime terminals operator in Spain, with interests in Bilbao (Noatum Container Terminal Bilbao), Valencia (Noatum Container Terminal Valencia). In June 2017, COSCO Shipping Holdings Co Limited announced that it would buy a 51% stake in Noatum Ports SLU for €203.49 million euros ($227.81 million), extending its ports and terminals business networks over the Mediterranean and European areas.
