In this sense, Rafa Simó has pointed out that “the Port Authority is the third to lower rates the most for 2021, despite the current situation, to favor the economic growth of the surroundings and the port.” Likewise, he has referred to the high diversification of traffic “which allows us to stow all kinds of goods, including special loads.
“In this sense, they have visited the storage and operations field for project loads and wind equipment of Integral Shipping, a company specialized in the import and export of wind blades.
The president of the Castellón Port Authority has referred to the importance of the investments planned by PortCastelló in productive infrastructures, especially in land and rail connectivity, as well as the urbanization of the southern dock. In addition, he mentioned the future logistics platform that will be located next to the port and that will expand the opportunities and competitiveness of the companies that are located in the area.
The mayor of La Vall d´Uixó has highlighted the importance of creating synergies with other entities, as was done with the meetings with the Sagunt City Council and Parc Sagunt, to “give added value to our industry, improve its productivity and strengthen a sector that has shown that it is the one that best survives crises”. Hence the strategy of creating ties to “work together and join forces in our territory.”
