The city of Cadiz has held the first edition of its Logistics Forum organised by the Port Authority of the Bay of Cadiz, which brought together more than 150 professionals from the sector.

The event was inaugurated by the president of the Bay of Cadiz Port Authority, Teófila Martínez, together with the mayor of the city, Bruno García; the councillor for the Presidency, Interior, Social Dialogue and Administrative Simplification, Antonio Sanz, and the director of Planning and Development of Puertos del Estado, Manuel Arana.

Boluda was represented at this forum by Alfonso Serrat, manager of Boluda Shipping, who took part in two of the discussion panels that dealt with crucial issues for the future of logistics in the area, such as rail connectivity and the logistical opportunities offered by the connection between Cadiz and the Canary Islands-West Africa-North Europe.

In this sense, Boluda is committed to sustainability, promoting rail traffic to Cadiz, which allows it to manage greater cargo capacity, as well as reducing C02 emissions into the atmosphere. The company has a service of 5 trains a week that connects Cadiz with the Canary Islands and with West Africa, specifically with Cape Verde, Senegal, Mauritania and Morocco, offering a direct route for the entry of goods. This service, called Daily Canarias, connects the mainland with the Canary Islands every day from the capital of Cadiz.

In terms of the logistical connection opportunities offered by the city for companies, Serrat highlighted “its unbeatable geographical location and the communication of its infrastructures, being the shortest route between the mainland and the Canary Islands archipelago”.
