Sea links grow between Barcelona port and Italy, Africa

Sea links grow between Barcelona port and Italy, Africa
Sea traffic is growing between Barcelona port and Italy and Africa and ‘Short Sea Shipping’ links (the sea transport of cargo and passengers along the coast) are also on the rise, specialist Spanish media have said.

Between January and July this year container traffic at the Catalan port rose by 6% over the same period in 2016, the sources report. The biggest increase concerns traffic with Italy, with an 8% rise to a total of 80.172 containers transported. The upturn is also due to improvements made by the port to its services on land.

Passenger traffic rose by 11% in the first seven months of the year compared to the same period in 2016, with a peak of 52% in services to North Africa. This summer ENTMV-Algérie Ferries launched a weekly passenger and vehicle ferry service between Barcelona and Mostaganem, in Algeria.

Italy’s Grandi Navi Veloci operates four servcies per week between Barcelona and TangerMed in Morocco and a weekly service connecting the Catalan port and Nador, also in Morocco.
