Vigo port praises changes in stevedoring activity rules

Vigo, Spain (PortSEurope) January 6, 2017 – Vigo port authority (Autoridad Portuaria de Vigo) has praised the changes adopted by dockworkers, which, in its opinion, would improve efficiency and reduce costs for shipping companies. The institution is also said that the new contract for the delivery of stevedoring services would allow it attract Copenhagen-based shipping company Maersk back. The agreement approved by the stevedores on
January 4 is the result of the negotiations held since October with stevedores management company Sagep (Sociedad Anónima de Gestión de Estibadores Portuarios). At the functional level, the agreement coincides with an adoption to the IV Framework Agreement of the SEED agreement from 1996, when the Spanish state still participated in the ownership of the stowage. The contracts allows the extension of the working time for the handling of container ships by four hours. Copyright (c) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2017.
