Algeciras is in luck. 2024 could not have started in a better way for the Port of the Cadiz townwhich starting this year will see its importance in the port sector increase considerably, which in itself was already quite prominent due to its geographical position.

This good news comes from the hand of ‘ONE Innovation’, the largest container ship that has operated at the TTI terminal in Algeciras. And, starting this year, the Cadiz town will be the only one in all of Europe where this mammoth ship operates, as well as its five twins, which will also do so in September.

In the words of the Director of the Board of Directors of the shipping company Ocean Network Express (ONE), Stanley Smulders This move is more necessary than ever to ensure the growth of the shipping company.

He assured that he hopes they will be “the most fuel efficient in the world, which will improve the carbon footprint of our fleet to be prepared to sail for the coming decades”, even more so with the measures that will be implemented in climate matters in the coming years.

The Port of Algeciras, in the TOP-25

Gerardo Landaluce, president of the Port Authority of Algeciras (APBA), highlighted that this new incorporation will be a “great asset” for the Algeciras port, and highlighted that 25 shipping companies currently operate in its facilities with more than 200 ports directly. This places the Cadiz city within the top-25 in the global maritime connectivity ranking.

Ultimately, the counselor of the Presidency of the Junta de Andalucía, Antonio Sanz, also spoke in this regard, highlighting the great work of the port of Algeciras, as well as the “spectacular” data of its activity.
