Iberport Consulting and the Valenciaport Foundation collaborate in a joint project for the Port of Garrucha (Almería, Spain)


The Valenciaport Foundation and Iberport, a Valencian port consulting firm, have been awarded a contract by the regional government of Andalusia to examine the opportunities for short-sea shipping (SSS) in Garrucha (Almería, Spain). The Port of Garrucha is the only commercial port run by the Andalusian regional government.

Both the tendency to export of the Almerian economy and its vast hinterland reaching out to adjacent provinces justify an analysis of the present offer of SSS services, forecasts of SSS demand as well as the specifications of the sectorial logistics chains in Garrucha. This is intended to evaluate the potential of SSS. The project commenced in September and is expected to last seven months.

For the part of the Valenciaport Foundation, this new initiative constitutes an opportunity to evaluate in practical terms the models and projections made in this field of research. The methodologies to be employed will be complemented by the experience of Iberport in the valuation of the availability of port infrastructure and accessibility in the designing of future strategies.
