Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain (PortSEurope) April 6, 2021 – In the first months of 2021, the port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife handled 12,000 TEUs in international transshipment traffic, compared to 4,125 units in the same period last year. January alone registered 6,376 TEUs compared to 1,646 in January of last year when the pandemic had not yet been declared. Translated into
merchandise, the port of Tenerife has moved 146,800 tons of merchandise in international transshipment in this first quarter of the year, 43% more than in the same period last year when the figure was 102,600 tons. A highlight is the role played by the Grimaldi Lines ships that cover the circuits between America, Africa and Europe, a shipping company that continues to bet on the port of Tenerife as a link for these transshipments of merchandise between the three continents. Along with Grimaldi Lines, ships of the Maersk shipping company were registered again in the first quarter of this year, which, although it already operated in 2019, did not call in the first quarter of 2020. Among these vessels, the regular presence of units such as Grande Senegal, Grande Luanda, and Grande Dakar, by Grimaldi Lines, and the San Vicente, BSL Cape Town and Santa Isabel by Maersk Lines, stands out. Through these maritime lines, Santa Cruz de Tenerife is established as a hub port, or a logistics and distribution connection center, between Europe, Africa and America, with special emphasis on African ports as receiving facilities for merchandise.
