05-14-2018 (Ministry of Development). The quicker and cheaper Silk Road passes through Spain. The strategic location of the country, the competitive offer of Spanish ports and the development of land infrastructures such as the Mediterranean Corridor allow Puertos del Estado to present to Spain in the Logistic Transport China in Shanghai as a key piece in trade between Europe and Asia.
Aware of the importance of the Spanish ports on this route, the company organizing the fair, Messe Muenchen Shanghai, has selected Puertos del Estado for the organization of a conference on the main day of the Fair when their proposals to revitalize the new Silk Road will be presented.
With the title "The Spanish Mediterranean corridor, essential part of the new Silk Road: a competitive multimodal offer for the China-Europe traffic", Puertos del Estado organizes a panel in the framework of the Logistic Transport China in Shanghai on May 17 at 1 p.m., in which they will present their unique offer for connecting Asia and Europe not only by sea but in a multimodal way via the Mediterranean Corridor, which brings China to the main distribution and consumption centers of Europe while saving time and money.
The Asia-Europe corridor is the second in the world and in recent years the growing activity in the Mediterranean ports has allowed it to be positioned ahead of its main competitors in the management of millions of tons of merchandise that are moved along this route each year. In recent years, this has contributed to the Spanish ports doubling in their number of infrastructures and becoming modern and sustainable ports that welcome the most efficient terminals with the best operability indices.
Improving the connections of Spanish ports with land infrastructures has allowed an even more considerable reduction in transit times allowing a more efficient and sustainable movement of merchandise. Thus, the Puertos del Estado has become the key to getting to the heart of Europe.
The conference will be inaugurated by the president of Puertos del Estado, José Llorca, who will introduce the "Mediterranean Corridor in the trans-European transportation networks".
Representatives of the main shipping companies and terminal companies of the world maritime-port sector, such as Maersk, MSC, Noatum, Hutchison or TTI Algeciras that have selected the Spanish ports to perform their operations, will contribute with their experience in the Spanish ports at the round tables "The offer of maritime lines" and "The high productivity of the port terminals of the Corridor."
In addition, the ports of Barcelona and Tarragona will focus their operations in "The railway connectivity with Europe. Toward the ship-train synchromodality," while the ports of Valencia and Bilbao will talk of "the Mediterranean-Atlantic Axis Connection." Finally, the Port Authority of Algeciras and Customs Management of the Tax Agency will present "The Corridor in economy 4.0: Digital ports and controls on digital borders."
