02. COMPORT: Association for Port of Algeciras Bay Promotion
COMPORT, association established at the end of 1999 to promote the Port Bay of Algeciras and its Port Community, continues – from that moment on- to push the development of the port and maritime collective through its commercial activity.
The organization of promotional activities such as the participation in trade fairs, conferences and other national and international forums together with the commercialization of the Port itself, in close collaboration with the Port of Algeciras Bay Authority, provides a global vision of the offer of the Bay of Algeciras, promoting the infrastructure and the new port development, and the services rendered by the companies.
COMPORT incorporates all the sectors connected with the port maritime activity. It is now made up of more than 140 members among companies, institutions and business associations. Its aim is to facilitate the commercial relationships and to reinforce the image of the Port Bay of Algeciras.
Thanks to the collaboration and commitment of the business owners of our Port Community, COMPORT is nowadays a consolidated and mature association. It does not cease in providing the professionals of our port community with a dynamic platform for a joint and continuous promotion. The association organizes the promotional events through two large groups, the logistics services, -in its widest sense-, and the ship services. Each of the two groups has different work commissions that deal and coordinate the specific commercial and promotional events of each of the sectors.
Based on the demand of our associates, APBA and COMPORT elaborate a joint yearly commercial programme that guides our activity and permits to feed the growth, development and energy of the economic engine of the Campo de Gibraltar area which is not other than the Port Bay of Algeciras.
