Maritime Transport, Atlantic and Mediterranean Port Networks The Example of the Canary Islands

Gerardo Delgado-Aguiar, José Ángel Hernández-Luis


Maritime transport currently plays a key role in global socio-economic relations. Certain policies, such as globalization, could not be understood without the development of maritime connectivity and its degree of accessibility. The aim of this work, in addition to making an approximation to the theoretical and methodological framework, is to relate development to maritime transport and its application to the specific case of the Canary Islands, where we analyse accessibility from the point of view of connectivity and, in particular, timetables and taxes in the context of the proposal for the Transinsular Axis of Transport, a policy aimed at cohering the territory through maritime and land transport. It delves into accessibility deficiencies, discussing their weaknesses.
