05. Algeciras Bay Logistics Area

The competitive strategic location occupied by the Port Bay of Algeciras, on the crossroads of the world’s containerized cargo exchange, gives us a significant role as a Mediterranean port and logistics hub.

Driven by the Andalusian Regional Government and with the participation of APBA, the Algeciras Bay Logistics Area is set to become the great intercontinental logistics distribution platform in Southern Europe. It is ready to contribute to Andalusia’s aspirations of becoming the Mediterranean gateway to receive and forward the cargo flows from Asia and America that are bound for Spain, Europe and Africa.

Integrating a rail terminal inside a total surface area of close to 300 hectares, the Bay of Algeciras Logistics Area is a necessary link that can consolidate an efficient, competitive logistics chain that encourages the establishment of added-value logistics business and services. The Port of Algeciras Bay can therefore strengthen its position – not only as a transhipment platform, but also as a “Gateway port” evolvingtowards a natural entry and exit platform for cargoes in our closest sphere of influence and outlying markets further down the logistics chain.

El Fresno (Sector 1) in Los Barrios hosts the headquarters of the main international shipping groups and companies related to the maritime transport, grouped in a modern service building that houses the offices of the Logistics Area’s administration agency.

Directly connected to the Port Bay of Algeciras via the North Acces –a road that filters ro-ro traffic from the hinterland towards our port area-, El Fresno has been chosen by the Consorcio Zona Franca de Cádiz to install the Customs-bonded Area foreseen for the region and to operate a Transport Service Center. The new tax area, with a surface of approximately 130,000 m2, will count on customs and tax benefits that will facilitate the attraction of investments and the establishment of companies complementary to the port activity.

Guadarranque (sector 2) in San Roque has a 125-hectare of high quality logistics area divided into three parts dedicated to logistics, intermodal operations and other auxiliary services to the transport.

Logistics and Transformation parks: 650,000 m2 of surface area.
● Intermodal Area: 132,000 m2 of surface area.
● Integrated Service Centre and Centre for Transport and International Transit: 189,000 m2 of surface area.
