In order to integrate more rapidly into the globalized economy, the Strait of Gibraltar is a predominantly political economic device. With its port facilities Tanger-Med, Algeciras and Gibraltar, this device configures the global economy and maritime traffic in a context of vertical economic regulation where African platforms like Tangier Med, constitute a gateway for development but at the same time a puzzle in a chessboard.

These are the fundamental questions on which this contribution, which is intended to be an application of ICTs in maritime transport, is articulated.
