Robust results in the port of Barcelona

The port of Barcelona has reported strong economic results for FY/2023, with a turnover of EUR 189 million, a cash flow of EUR 101 million, and a reduction of its bank debt by EUR 18 million. Despite the increased turnover, operating income declined by 18.5% due to higher expenditure, particularly in infrastructure maintenance and staff costs.


The port remains a key contributor to the state ports system, financing various solidarity instruments. Additionally, the port of Barcelona has become the main entry hub for electric vehicles from China into Southern Europe and the Mediterranean, with a record-breaking 33.7% growth in car throughput, totalling 790,000 units. The port also set a record in dry bulk movement and saw a significant rise in passenger traffic, driven by higher cruise occupancy rates. (pb)
