From its privileged location in the north of Spain, the Port of Gijón is today a strategic axis of the Atlantic arc and the leader in the movement of solid bulk within Spain. With an annual throughput of more than 20 million tonnes, this port has infrastructures that meet the new needs of customers and users in terms of specialised terminals, draughts for large vessels and storage areas.
The Port Authority contacted Vectio to carry out a mobility assessment to analyse the transport flows, detect areas for improvement and provide solutions. As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practices, the Port Authority's objective is to be environmentally friendly, which is why it is committed to sustainable development and climate protection. For this reason, they work every day to promote sustainable mobility for workers and cargo (internal and external) at their facilities.
One of the main lines of this plan has been the proposal of new tools and actions based on the knowledge of mobility habits and preferences. This information, collected through surveys and field work, has made it possible to implement innovative and functional experiences that help sustainable business mobility, increasing the company's social prestige and serving as an example for other companies.
