Port of Barcelona


The Port of Barcelona is the fastest-growing port in Western Europe and it is part of a unique and seamless logistics and business hub, including airport, port, logistics areas and a large urban area. It is Spain’s top port for international trade: from Barcelona companies can reach a market of 400 million consumers in under 48 hours. Its area of influence stretches through the south and centre of Europe and North Africa and it is the logistics gateway linking markets as distant as the Far East and Latin America. The Port of Barcelona provides over 41.200 jobs and it channels 73% of Catalonia’s external maritime trade and 24% of the Spanish total.

Knect365 will be running a Smart Ports Summit with Port of Barcelona on the 19th-20th November at the Fira Barcelona Gran Via as a side event to the Smart City Expo World Congress. The event brings together industry’s movers and shakers, and key stakeholders from across the supply chain to discuss how to integrate smarter operations, helping to increase sustainability across port and terminal activity.
