Commercial port

Pasaia has been a key commercial centre for the Basque Country and the peninsula for many centuries; in the sixteenth century with maritime expeditions to Newfoundland, in the eighteenth century with maritime trade and closer to our time, with the offshore and deep-sea fishing fleets and shipbuilding. These different activities have left their mark on what is today the Pasaia Port Authority.

Pasaia has been a key commercial centre for the Basque Country and the peninsula for many centuries; in the sixteenth century with maritime expeditions to Newfoundland, in the eighteenth century with maritime trade and closer to our time, with the offshore and deep-sea fishing fleets and shipbuilding. These different activities have left their mark on what is today the Pasaia Port Authority. Currently, we are an infrastructure playing a direct role in the value chain of Guipuzcoan companies and those from the hinterland, offering solutions to meet their logistical needs. We have a direct and indirect effect on employment in this region given that many companies use this port for their logistical needs (for example the car manufacturing industry supplied by our components sector). We are therefore the engine driving regional economic activity.

One of the main advantages of this port is its accessibility: Pasaia has direct links with the peninsula and the rest of Europe by air, road and rail. If to this strategic location we add the efficiency of the port stevedore company (SAGEP) and the other stevedore companies operating in our port, the result is an organisation which is highly competitive in terms of both cost (fuel + tolls) and time:

Coste (combustible + peajes) del transporte por carretera hasta el Puerto de Pasaia

Cost (fuel + tolls) of the road transport to Pasaia Port, through high capacity roads*

* Including estimated tolls costs from Gipuzkoa and France. Transport by highways, motorways and other roads included in the trans-european transport network.

There is also a need to understand and manage the port’s activity seeking a balance between being an attractive and economically profitable infrastructure for businesses and this activity coexisting with the urban area. This has required us to define a strategic, competitive and sustainable project with a time horizon of 2025, where we find a friendly port area that allows for port activity (fishing activity, industrial activity, etc.) to coexist with the use and enjoyment of the area by the public.
