In this chapter, we examine the successive reforms in the governance of ports in Spain which has lead to a movement from a bureaucratic model to a more market oriented approach. We also provide some data that shows that those port authorities more exposed to competition have reduced prices and increase traffic after the price liberalization took place. However, the existence of a formal scheme of cross-subsidies and the modest advances in the deregulation of stevedoring services suggest that the devolution process is, in Spain, still incomplete.
