Welcome to our new website, a direct line of communication designed to enhance business relationships by providing a clear and transparent overview of our work.

Our entire company staff are excited about taking up this new challenge, aware that new technologies are the key to continuing to offer the very highest quality and effectiveness in our services.


Good news for our city, and excellent ones for port agencies in Ceutalike ours. Last 9th of December (less than a month from starting the current year 2017), the Salama team learned the latest data provided by Puertos del Estado (State Ports), where it was pointed out that, in 2016, container freight traffic had registered an increase of 37.4% with more than 130,000 tons transported.

The Christmas holidays are just around the corner and it’s time to choose a destination; a decision that is particularly relevant if you travel on your sailboat or a private yacht. Although Spain boasts countless coastal areas, Salama wagers on our local offer and heartily recommends a unique and completely different destination: our city of Ceuta.

The Strait of Gibraltar, considered to be the world’s main maritime artery, is a field of operations where thousands of ships sail per year, meaning all sorts of different actions are carried out. Unknown to most, these activities go beyond "simply sailing through its waters" or a "port layover"; e.g., one of the more complex operations is the so-called Off Port Limits layover. What does it really entail and what kind of ships can request this service?

They say that sailing is one of those unforgettable experiences. That it’s highly recommended for those seeking to relax and to enjoy the sea; that ships crossing the ocean are the perfect way to disconnect during holidays on your own or with family and friends... However, what does it mean to work on a ship? What are its consequences? Can it be considered a "relaxing" experience?

With summer beyond the horizon and after successfully closing the relevant Paso del Estrecho Operation - the main maritime operation in Europe as far as passenger traffic is concerned - the agencies in the port of Ceuta start the new season with a planning full of operations.

Whether it’s a cargo ship, a passenger ship or a small sailboat, when a vessel requests Salama’s services, they usually do it for very specific reasons. These services are similar in most cases

Although there are many, and varied, actions carried out by port agencies in Ceuta, one of the most complicated is what we refer to as crew change. It is performed against the clock (either in the port or at sea) and is crucial for the ship to continue its sea route with normality and on time.

What is behind a port agency like Salama? What is beyond the human team? What is the role of new technologies in an agency as ours? Although one may thing that the headquarters of an agency like Salama are full of papers and filling cabinets, the thing is that —although there are many, as in all offices—, our company is a reference in the sector for its direct connection with new technologies.

Apart from checking that the engines operate at full capacity and ensuring that the ship has the necessary fuel for the trip, there are two elements aboard that are essential for a trip without problems, with guaranties and with the maximum safety: the radios and the radars. What is each tool used for and why are they important?

Beyond our origin, our location and the type of services we offer to our clients (mostly cargo ships), the most relevant location for port agencies in Ceuta (port agencies such as Salama) —the one that gives our objective meaning— is that of the North African port of the Autonomous Community of Ceuta.
