COMMENT: The European Union-mandated liberalisation of Spain's port services, which generated a period of significant unrest in the sector earlier in the year, is progressively leaving in its wake a changed pattern of container handling along Spain’s Mediterranean coastline.
Port of Valencia’s container traffic has recovered from the June stevedoring strike with growth of 0.34%.
Despite this year’s stevedoring strikes in Spain, Puertos del Estado, the national ports authority, has revealed that combined traffic at its 28 ports was up 3.39% to 260.9m tonnes during the first two quarters.
Valencia Port Authority (APV) is to dredge 690,000 cubic metres to deepen existing quays to accommodate vessels of up to 20,000 teu. The recovered spoil will then be used as infill material for Phase I of the new northern container terminal.
The general assembly of the Spanish owners’ association Anesco has voted against accepting a pre-agreement reached with stevedoring unions, claiming it is anti-competitive and in breach of proposed new government legislation, which the unions oppose.
