Innovation for the competitiveness of Algeciras Port
One of the strategic objectives of the Algeciras Port Authority (APBA) is to promote innovation in its field of activity as a key element to increase its competitive edge and generate wealth of high added value.
The initiative “Algeciras BrainPort 2020” represents a step forward towards a new model of port management, where on one hand products and services are created or improved to be more efficient, safe and respectful of the environment, and on the other hand, serves to consolidate a culture / mentality of continuous improvement in the Port Authority and in all its Port Community.
Algeciras BrainPort 2020 is an innovation program framed in the area of transport and logistics, whose general objective is to generate knowledge and added value to optimize the Algeciras Port logistic node placed in the Strait of Gibraltar.
This group of initiatives, in which, not only the Algeciras Port Community participates but also any individual, innovative players or large firms that creates value in a context of Open Innovation, will permit that the concept of the Next Generation Port (brainport) and the digital and innovation world-class ecosystem in port-logistics to be a reality in Algeciras Port.
I encourage you to discover the Journey of Innovation and that you help us to improve with your ideas!
