This year’s host port, the Port of Valencia, is the leader in container traffic within the Mediterranean basin.
The Port of Valencia is the umbrella port for three Spanish ports; Valencia, Sagunto and Gandia which span 80km of the Mediterranean coast.
As the leading port in container traffic in the Mediterranean basin, Valenciaport has had to integrate sustainability into their daily operations.
The Port of Valencia is increasing its cargo handling at an average yearly rate of 2%, taking into consideration that 40% of the containers that serve the Spanish foreign trade pass through the Port of Valencia. It is this growth that the port strictly monitors and accompanies with sustainable management, aiming to obtain the best possible balance between financial returns, environmental caring and social acceptance for the city.
