The Port Authority of Castellón has promoted a new organization chart to face the challenges of the future, be more efficient, meet the needs of customers and provide value-added services to guarantee the competitive position of the port of Castellón.
The new organizational structure of the public body has been recently approved by its Board of Directors and is based on three fundamental pillars, such as management, infrastructure and operation.
These areas will develop essential issues such as talent management and human resources, promoting transversal communication in the organization.

In fact, the Port Authority of Castellón has commissioned a market study to learn about the different business models that can be located in this new space of 700,000 square meters.

It also contemplates a Department of Works and Projects on which the development of the intermodality of PortCastelló falls.
Comprehensive security is included in the Operations area under the premise of developing a safe environment in port spaces and developing a risk prevention policy, promoting a global security culture throughout the port community and facilitating coordination between all agents involved.

He explained that the new organizational structure will prioritize transversal communication and will allow the approved Strategic Plan to be successfully tackled to consolidate the role of the port of Castellón as an economic engine for the environment and “as a space at the service of society”.
