Port Authority of Alicante joins Logistop as a new partner with the aim of continuing to add value in the field of innovation and contribute to the development and implementation of projects, as well as to achieve a more efficient, digital and sustainable logistics chain, mainly in the area of port logistics.

About Port Authority of Alicante

The Port Authority of Alicante is the main logistics platform in the province of Alicante, and its mission is to contribute to the economic and social development of its area of influence, by providing efficient and sustainable services that help to improve the competitiveness of its customers and generate added value that can be shared with society.

The strength of the Port of Alicante is based on its geographical location, as it covers an area of influence where municipalities with great export potential converge, and also on the agility and flexibility conferred by its size, far from the large saturations of other larger ports. The excellent existing connection infrastructures (motorways, roads and airport), together with the railway infrastructure, with its imminent connection to the Mediterranean Corridor and the lines to Madrid and Miranda de Ebro (Atlantic Corridor) is increasing its export capacity exponentially.

The port is currently facing a new roadmap to become an intelligent, green, innovative, interconnected and competitive port. A specialisation strategy, in which it wants to make its extraordinary tourist, leisure and sporting use compatible with its industrial and commercial development, aimed at increasing goods traffic.

To this end, it has launched major environmental sustainability and decarbonisation projects applied to port logistics, where innovation and digitalisation are particularly relevant, dedicating numerous areas of the port to the implementation of emerging and technological companies, which are creating an exceptional innovative ecosystem in its surroundings.
