The newest Port in Spain has over one hundred years of experience. A century has passed and the Port of Motril has been transformed,
not only from the point of view of its external appearance, in relation with the infrastructures, but also by the important growth in the traffic of goods,
number of vessels that arrive and the large tonnage of these. Many generations of “motrileños” (people born in Motril) have witnessed the changes;
its development has been in the hands of a number of managers who have contributed with their expertise and knowledge to the development of the Port.
A century of existence and a hopeful, wishful future full of expectations. A challenge that will imply one of the most important socioeconomic transformations of recent times, and undoubtedly, promote the development and the creation of employment.
The Port Authority of Motril, aware of the significance of this moment, does not want to solely benefit from this development,
but to approach this new stage together with its citizens.
Much has been achieved and setbacks overcome, which have strengthened us to deal with every opportunity we face. But it is not a coincidence;
it is the consequence of having a community with wisdom, able to work hard to achieve the recognition it deserves.
The general interest of the port is to design the best strategy possible able to unite those companies from different parts of the country that,
subject to the environmental quality and security standards, want to settle among us.
Currently, the Port of Motril has modern and well equipped facilities prepared for the intermodality, able to meet the challenges raised by the sector. Additionally,
there is the possibility of growing, thanks to the wide area of Logistics operations, and its strategic position in a land and marine communications centre. This last concern is not trivial,
if we consider that the Port of Motril is part of the route that connects the Mediterranean with the Atlantic and, therefore, with a number of countries that export and import various goods.
In addition, we are located in the route of the products coming from the Far East that travel through the Suez Channel, the Mediterranean and the Gibraltar Strait into Europe.
Motril occupies a privileged place in that intersection as our distance from the Coast of Africa is only 90 miles, whereas most shipping lines entering or leaving the Mediterranean pass by a maximum of 60 miles from our coast.
