Las Palmas dispute

The Supreme Court of the Canary Islands has ruled that local construction firm Gramelcan SL must contract port stevedores to handle its aggregates and cement traffic in the port of Las Palmas. The ruling follows a petition filed by the stevedoring company, in a dispute that dates back to 2009.

The Supreme Court concluded that a judgement by the Upper Court two years ago supporting Gramelcan handling its own account shipments was inconsistent and lacked clarity. The Upper Court had found that there was a precedent for Gramelcan’s case, involving Yesos Canarias SA in Tenerife, but the Supreme Court argued that this was not a valid comparison, since Gramelcan could only be granted exemption if handling involved the “transforming, processing or packaging of all of the goods” for later distribution.
