Valenciaport to invest more than US$277 million in railway improvements

The Port Authority of Valencia (PAV) will invest 240 million Euro in the ports of Valencia and Sagunto to make the switch to rail transport as the way of the future. In the first nine months of the 2021, Valenciaport has handled 2,251,000 tons of freight through rail traffic, 18.38% more than in the same period of the previous year.

The president of the Port Authority of Valencia (PAV), Aurelio Martínez, has highlighted how Valenciaport is focusing on rail transport with an investment of 240 million euros for the next years. Its aim is to make the train the chosen way of transport of the future and a perfect ally of the maritime one.

Aurelio Martínez: “We are approaching the railway closer to the companies so that containers travel by this means of transport. Our commitment is clear and this allows us to be the first port in commercial relations via rail with Madrid, to have more transport volume and to consolidate our position as the leading port in Spain.”
