Valencia, Spain (PortSEurope) November 23, 2017 – In Buenos Aires, the Valenciaport Foundation has presented the results of the technical assistance for the development of a logistic corridor to the Minister of Transport, Guillermo Dietrich.
In collaboration with the Argentine consultant Jorge Tesler, the project is part of a collaboration agreement signed by both institutions about two years ago, when a delegation from Valencia led by Gonzalo Mórtola and Alejandro Ok were in Argentina.
The project is based on new traffic management required by the Port of Buenos Aires currently and a subsequent modernization process. In particular, a short, medium and long-term solution has been proposed that combines different cutting-edge technological solutions. In addition, a Zona de Apoyo Portuario (ZAP – Port Support Zone) has been designed to meet these needs following logistic and customs criteria.
The meeting was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Transport of Argentina, as well as the Comptroller of the Port of Buenos Aires, Gonzalo Mórtola, the General Manager, Alejandro Ok, the project manager by the Port, Rodrigo Canessa and several managers of the institution.
On behalf of the Valenciaport Foundation, were Salvador Furió, Director of Logistics and Intermodality and Miguel Garín, Director of International Development. At the end of the meeting, documentation containing the results and conclusions of the Technical Assistance was delivered. Subsequently, there was a presentation of the results of the project to the Minister of Transport, Guillermo Dietrich.
The technical team of the Valenciaport Foundation that has developed the project has been formed by technicians Carles Pérez and Paula Vieira and the coordinator of the project, Salvador Furió. This team has cooperated locally with Jorge Tesler and César Guidi.
Both entities have agreed to continue searching for new areas of collaboration for the near future.
The Valenciaport Foundation for Research, Promotion and Commercial Studies of the Valencian region is a non-profit private entity. It has been conceived to further expand the reach of the logistics-ports community by serving as a research, training and cooperation centre of excellence.
