2018-2022 Strategic Plan

The Port of Alicante, the main logistics platform of Alicante province, faces the future with the security afforded to it by being an essential instrument for the relaunch of Alicante’s economy in the looming new global order.

The Port of Alicante’s potential is based on its geographic location, since it covers a service area where municipalities as important as Alicante, Elche, Murcia and Albacete converge, and also makes inroads towards Madrid through the industrial zones of the river Vinalopó. The strength of this area’s business sector lies in an optimal transport infrastructure: port, motorways, roads and airport, which increases its export capacity and commercial tradition.

Goal of the Strategic Plan

  • Drive a competitive and sustainable offer

    Drive a competitive and sustainable offer of logistics and intermodal services, which are primarily provided at spaces allocated to transport mode transfer and logistics activities, providing greater value to our customers.

  • Strengthen the creation of shared value with the city

    Strengthen the creation of shared value with the city in free access spaces which make up the port-city border, so that the port can advance as an engine of development of the city of Alicante
