Mission, View and Values


The Port contributes effectively, both in the short and in the medium and long term, to the economic-social development of its area of influence, by means of the port activity as a continuity element in the intermodal chain. To do so, it renders quality services, with an added value, equipped with infrastructures and technology, and it exploits its resources positively interacting in its social and natural environment.

The Port Authority of the Cadiz Bay (Autoridad Portuaria de la Bahía de Cádiz: APBC), as a management body with functional and management autonomy, promotes the implementation of the initiative within the scope of influence of the Port, with a special attention to quality management.

The APBC manages its resources under the principle of self-sufficiency, with the efficiency of management contributing to the improvement of infrastructures and of the level of satisfaction of the client.

With regard to other ports, the APBC respects the principles of loyal competition.

The APBC promotes, with the agents of the port community and with the institutions and organisms, the development of participative methods for the planning, management and control of its activities.
