According to Nahaira S. Alonso from El Pais, 46 Spanish ports coordinated by Puertos del Estado closed 2017 with an average growth of 6.96% and a total of 545 million tons of goods movements. The increase has occurred in a year marked by the conflict of the stowage. The dispute, which arose as a result of the liberalization of the sector undertaken by the Government to the demands of the European Commission, led to strikes in June and has not yet been resolved without the Ministry of Public Works approving the regulations for the development of the Royal Decree of Stowage.
