Valenciaport brings its port services to Albacete
Valenciaport has been present at the exhibition that the Albacete City Council has prepared on the occasion of the Albacete Fair, where the Logistics and Intermodal Platform initiative, which aims to centralise the export and import strategy of Castilla La Mancha in the Port of Valencia, is explained.
At the stand, where the Mayor of Albacete, Emilio Sáez, and the President of the Provincial Council, Santiago Cabañero, were present, the characteristics of this project which favours the commercial alliance between the Port of Valencia and this dry port, an opportunity to improve the internationalisation and competitiveness of the companies from Albacete which have in Valencia their natural outlet to the sea, were explained.
Valenciaport moves 20,000 containers to/from Albacete, a traffic demand that will increase due to the business initiatives to be developed in the province of La Mancha. The Port of Valencia has connections with 1,000 ports in the world from 168 different countries through 100 regular lines.
The Dry Port and Logistics Platform of Albacete is a project promoted by the Government of Castilla-La Mancha and the ‘Candelo’ group. This infrastructure will be located on the Madrid-Levante rail corridor at the junction of the A-31 and A-30 motorways and close to the A-32. The main market of influence of this infrastructure would be the Port of Valencia with 84 percent of the expected traffic.
The Mayor of Albacete and the President of the Provincial Council, together with Ignacio Hernando, Minister for Development of the Regional Government of Castilla-La Mancha (JCCM), visited the Port of Valencia at the beginning of the year to present this Platform.
