RESUMEN En este trabajo analizamos el impacto económico regional del tráfico de contenedores en uno de los puertos más importantes del Mediterráneo: el Puerto Bahía de Algeciras (PBA). Para alcanzar este objetivo genérico, detallamos el marco global en el que se desarrollan las actividades de contenerización y las características que condicionan este proceso. En un segundo paso, llevamos a cabo un estudio de la evolución del tráfico de contenedores, con el objeto de situar al PBA en contexto de puertos españoles y del resto del mundo. Finalmente se obtienen los impactos económicos regionales a través de la aplicación de la metodología input-output. ABSTRACT In this paper we study the regional economic impact of the container traffic at one of the most important port in the Mediterranean: the Port of Algeciras Bay (PAB). In order to meet this general objective we analyse in detail the global framework of the containerisation business and the characteristics that currently condition this process. In a second step we have carried out an analysis of the evolution of the container traffic, in order to situate the PAB in the contexts of both the Spanish ports and those of the rest of the world. Finally, the economic effects are determined; the economic impacts of the Port of Algeciras Bay and its economic relevance are derived from the application of an economic input-output methodology
