Description
The Port Authority of Valencia (PAV), which trades under the name of VALENCIAPORT, is the public body responsible for running and managing three state-owned ports along an 80km stretch of the Mediterranean coast in Eastern Spain: Valencia, Sagunto and Gandia.
Valenciaport is a major gateway to Europe in Spain and plays also a significant role as a redistribution center in Western Mediterranean since some 53% of its containerized cargo is transshipment.
