Port of Malaga joins the III Andalusian Logistics Meeting held today in Algeciras

Algeciras, Spain (PortSEurope) December 3, 2021 – The Port of Malaga participated in the III Andalusian Logistics Meeting held yesterday in Algeciras, and which focussed on intermodal competitiveness through railways and the region’s logistics strategy. In line with these issues, the president of Autoridad Portuaria de Málaga (APM – Port Authority of Málaga), Carlos Rubio Basabe, took part in the panel ‘Ports of Andalusia’, together with his Andalusian counterparts
and moderated by the CEO of Extenda, Arturo Bernal, during which he debated on the internationalization of the Andalusian economy. Bernal said he appreciated “Extenda’s alliance with the Andalusian ports, which play a fundamental role in foreign trade since about half of Andalusian exports are carried out by sea”. For his part, Carlos Rubio stressed that Andalusian ports: “must be competitive and attractive, not only because of their strategic location but also because of the costs of scale, mainly in relation to taxation, and streamlining of services, as other foreign ports are doing”. The interventions focused mainly on knowing the keys to boost the connectivity of the Andalusian ports, highlighting the importance of the central branch as a priority demand to increase the movement between the Andalusian ports and its connection with the logistics nodes in the interior of the peninsula. This meeting, organized by the Association for the progress of the Directorate (APD), had the support of the Minister of Development, Infrastructure and Territorial Planning of the Junta de Andalucía, Marifrán Carazo, which opened the conference and roundtables of debate. The Deputy Minister of the Presidency of the Junta de Andalucía, Antonio Sanz, closed this interesting meeting.
