Port de Barcelona will have a rolling highway terminal
Last week, the Catalan Ministry of Territory and Sustainability, via the public company CIMALSA, signed an agreement with VIIA (SNCF Mobilités French group) to carry out the project for the construction and the operation of the Port de Barcelona rolling highway terminal. That terminal will provide 8 daily connections and will be open to any operator.

With this promising alternative to road to connect Port de Barcelona to Europe, the new infrastructure will strengthen Port’s capacities and will offer companies settled in Barcelona an additional differential element of competitiveness.

Today, Port de Barcelona is the top Spanish port in terms of passengers (more than 3 million in 2018), ahead of Balearic Islands, Las Palmas and Santa Cruz de Tenerife ports. Regarding goods transport, the Catalan capital’s port ranks 3rd after Algeciras and Valencia with 67.8 million tons transported in 2018, 10.6% more than in 2017.

The accompanying image shows how Port de Barcelona was just one year after the creation of the entity in 1869: from 70 hectares at that time to the 1,300 hectares currently used, the evolution is significant and Port de Barcelona deserves to celebrate its 150 anniversary!

Congratulations!
