The Port of Bilbao cu-rrently counts on an
offer of 53 regular lines
with ports located in the
European Atlantic faade, including the Canary
Islands. The vessels covering these services
transported a total of
13.4 millions of tonnes of
goods in 1999, 47% of
which correspond to dry
cargo. The evolution of
this type of traffic was
highly positive last year,
experiencing an increase of 14% as regards operations with
other European countries and depicting
an increase of 19% in cabotage traffic.
Based on different countries, the most
important commercial exchanges are
carried out with the UK (51 million tonnes), market that experienced an increase of 19% in traffic. Followed by order
of importance, are operations whose
origin-destination is Russia (1.5 million
tonnes), Low Countries (1 million
Tonnes), and in a lesser measure, with
Scandinavian countries and Baltic
It so happens that Bilbao is beginning to
operate as a transhipment port for goods
coming from the North of Europe, whose
final destiny is the Canary Islands, and
for products coming from Latin America,
which are shipped, once again, to other
European ports. (Information on maritime
lines in inside pages).

Bilbao offers 53 maritime services
with Atlantic Europe
¥ The Port of Bilbao shifted in 1999 a
total of 27.05 millions of Tons of
goods, which entails an increase of
18% over 1998's figures. The balance obtained from port traffic reflects a
positive evolution in the movement of
dry cargo (+3%), against the decrease experienced in the movement of
traffic of liquid bulk (-5%). According
to geographical areas, an increase
has been experienced in operations
with ports located in the Atlantic
Europe and Latin America areas.

S.A. has receptioned a Liebher
1,200 vg. crane, of 52 tonne capacity, whose jib

firm has also
opened new offices in Gran V’a

¥ The Autoridad Portuaria de
Bilbao (Port Authority of Bilbao) has
decided, for the second consecutive
year, to freeze the rates applied at
the Port. Thus, its rates for the year
2000 shall remain unchanged, both
as regards Direct Services -vessels,
passage, goods, cranes, storage
and supplies - and as regards
Indirect Services: towing, mooring
and reception service for waste.
The only rate to be increased shall
be Pilot Service, due to the fact that
the Pilot Corporation has been established as a Limited Corporation.
Railway-port container traffic
increases by 6.6%
The railway terminal Santurce-Port shifted in 1999 a total of
68,043 TEUs, figure that represents
an increase of 6.6% as regards the
movement recorded for the previous exercise. Container traffic
also increased, even though it did
not record such figures, at the
Bilbao-Park facilities, which are largely due to the goods generated by
the Port of Bilbao. In total, Renfe
shifted 104,859 TEUs in both terminals.
The annual balance registered by
the railway company indicates, on
the other hand, that in 1999, the circulation frequencies of the
Santurce-Puerto services with
Barcelona increased (one more trip
per week) and with Silla (two new
daily trips).
Uniport Bilbao recently completed asurvey on the importance of transport for the companies located in the
Basque Country, as an indispensable
complement for their import-export activities. The survey has been undertaken on the basis of the analysis of the
opinion poll carried out among import
and/or export companies whose international commerce equals 81% of the
total Basque international commerce in
tonnes, which in 1998 registered 26 million tonnes.
Basque companies, which are increasingly present in international markets,
use any means of conveyance that
proves "good value for money" to them.
The first factor that determines the
conveyance method to be used, according
to the companies, is the price, followed
by the time in transit, the distance, the
regularity, the volume of goods, the
weight of the same, and the complexity
when contracting the transport.
Quality is not deemed as being a determining variable when selecting one
mode of transport or another because
quality is "assumed". Once selecting
transport by sea, companies consider
that the determining factor is the
freight, followed by transport by road
to/from the port, the cost of handling,
the rates applied by Port Authorities
and finally, the cost of railway transport.
The survey reveals that only 13% of
the companies subcontract the organisation of the transport to operators/forwarding agents. On the other hand,
transport is considered as being one
more element in company competitiveness. On average, transport costs for
companies represent 7.2% of the sale
price of export products and 8.3% of
the purchase cost for imports.
Uniport analyses the Basque International Sector
VIA (Vitoria International Airport)
and UniportBilbao shall have a
joint stand at the International
Transport Week and LogisticsSITL'00, which will be held in Paris
from 14-17th March. Many operators from Transport and Logistics
exhibit in this show, held every
year at the Exhibition Park in the
French capital, as well as manufacturers of equipment and suppliers of technology and
Information Technologies adapted
to the sector.
One month after the celebration of
SITL'00, UniportBilbao shall also
be present at the Intermodal Fair,
to be held in Sao Paulo (Brazil),
between the 12th and 14th of April.
The delegation of Uniport Bilbao to
be present at this fair, shall include

Condeminas Norte, Las Norte,
Jentoft, Sparber Transport, Tiba

Deposa, Moyresa y Nirint Iberia
join Uniport
Three new companies have recently joint UniportBilbao/Comunidad Portuaria, hence the number of associates rises to
119. The companies are Deposa, Moyresa and Nirint Iberia, S.L.
The company Dep—sitos Portuarios,
S.A. (Deposa) has been located, since
1960, in the second row of the Reina
Victoria quay in Santurce. It has automatic facilities for loading, unloading and storing of oil and vegetable oils for the food
industry. These products mostly arrive
from Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines
and Europe. DEPOSA has 31 storage
tanks in the port enclosure, with a total capacity of 17,838 m3.
Moyresa (Molturaci—n y Refino, S.A.)
stems from the contribution of assets
from two Companies: namely, Cerclo
and Aceprosa. Recently, Cerclo, which
is a division of the Eridania BŽghin-Say
Group has taken over Aceprosa's shares and is now 100% owner of
Moyresa. This group holds a first-class
position on a world-wide level as regards the transformation of the main
agricultural raw materials (that is, cereals, oleaginous grains, sugar).
Moyresa has had industrial facilities in
Bizkaia since 1963, specifically in
Portugalete, and since the beginning of
the 70s, it counted on tanks at the Port
of Santurce. Its direct port movement
ranges around 350,000 Tonnes per
Nirint Iberia, S.L. is a company that was
recently formed, which acts as branch office for Nirint Shipping, a Dutch shipping
company. This shipowner maintains,
since 1994, a direct forthnightly service
between Bilbao and the Cuban ports of
Havana and Moa, and has recently incorporated a new service for Short
Sea Shipping between Rotterdam
and Bilbao, with fornightly calls at the
Reina Victoria quay in Santurce and
destined to conventional cargo transport, containers and special projects.
These two services are covered by
the vessels "Nirint Progress" "Nirint
Traveller" and "Nirint Explorer", which
count on their own means for cargo
handling of up to 60 Tons.
