Valencia, Spain (PortSEurope) June 18, 2018 – Valencia port aims to increase the integration of cargo traffic between ships and trains, although there is still a long way to go. In tough competition with the port of Barcelona, Valencia maintains its leadership in the transfer of goods from the main railway logistics platform in central Spain, the Madrid Dry Port, after reaching 60,765 container units
(UTI) in 2017, which represents an increase of 15.3% on the year. However, the Catalan harbour far exceeds the Valencia port in total movement of containers through the railway as a result of its better connections with Aragón, as well as its routes with the Intermodal Terminal Center (TIC), Tarragona, Terminal Intermodal de Navarra (TIN) or Burgos, among others. The Dry Port of Madrid, set up in 2001 and whose main operator is Noatum Ports, combines rail, maritime and road transport, achieving efficiency in channeling of cargo flows. The high concentration of cargo and container traffic in the capital of Spain also promotes the strengthening of the dry port of Azuqueca, which cooperates mainly with Barcelona port.
