Puerto Bahía de Algeciras
Paseo de la Cornisa s/n
Located near the Strait of Gibraltar, the Port of Algeciras has grown over the years to the position of the largest port in Spain and the 5th biggest in the European Union (both in terms of total cargo and container turnover). Algeciras is also a EU TEN-T core port lying on the Atlantic and Mediterranean fright corridors, serving also as a nodal point for Asia-Europe-Americas and Africa-Europe trade lanes.
In 2013, Algeciras again broke its record by handling over 90 mln tn of freight (+2.2% year-on-year) as well as 4.34 mln TEU (+5.6% year-on-year). In addition as much as 5.1 mln of passenger went through the port’s berths. In total, around 30,000 vessels call at Algeciras each year.
Although presently the port infrastructure spans across an impressive 17 km of quays, covering 600 ha, Algeciras continuously strives for development. Currently there are three main ongoing extension projects taking place within the harbour – setting up of the Algeciras Logistic Area together with developing the sites of the Isla Verde Exterior and Campamento.
