PORT PRO OF THE MONTH

Since 2013, ESPO has been putting each month a port in the picture through its “port of the month” articles. After four years, we started with a new series of articles called the “port pro of the month”. Every month, we pay a visit to a port executive who will present us his or her port and also help us understand what it means to lead a European port. 

This month we talked to Mr. José Luis Cacho, President of the Ports of Sines and the Algarve (APS). He told us about his long-term vision for the ports, the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the port sector, and shared his view on the role decarbonisation and digitalisation play in the ports. Read the whole interview below to see the other interesting topics he talked about!
