Algeciras port will be able to able to accept railway traffic in containers from this May. A new terminal is being completed at the point described as ‘Kilometre Zero’ of the 3rd axis of a new European transport network. It’s forecast that more than 3.6 million containers could be attracted to what is the main port in Spain thanks to the new terminal at the Isla Verde dock.

The terminal will allow for 750m long trains which are needed to ensure the service is competitive, and will serve the companies installed in the Isla Verde Exterior, such as Korean multinational Hanjin Shipping, which also manages the Total International Terminal in Algeciras, Vopak and CLH.

The port has already seen an increasing number of tankers from South Korea, China, Japan, Thailand, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates. The cost of the terminal is just over 1 billion €, half of which is public investment and the other half private.


And staying on the water, but looking at leisure craft. Such nautical tourism in Andalucía has been hit by the recession with the number of berths occupied in marinas across Andalucía now down by a third, despite a significant reduction in mooring fees. José Carlos Martín, President of the Andalucía Marinas Association, explained, ‘There is more offer than demand for berths, despite a fall in price. 

Since 2008 prices have fallen by 32.8% in Málaga, 60.3% in Almeria and by 72.4% in Cádiz.
