Airfreight
is often the fastest means of transport that exists. In airfreight a great range of aircrafts are used for air forwarding. The most important airports for air forwarding in Spain are of course Madrid and Barcelona but smaller cities as Valencia, Alicante, Bilbao, Vigo and many others can also be reached easily for air forwarding. Obviously air forwarding can be related to both import and export freight in Spain. For international destinations out of Spain air transport is often the best solution (especially for perishable goods).
Sea forwarding out of Spain often occurs via international ship owners. A large number of containers are moved each year via the many ocean forwarders that are active in Spain. This concerns both FCL (Full Container Load) as LCL (Less-Than-Container Load). Road forwarding is used to get the goods to the Spanish harbours (sea groupage services to and from the ports). Spanish shipping hubs are located in suitable places and serve as a strategic platform for the hosting and distribution of goods via shipping ports. Shipping companies offer high frequency and availability from the main Spanish harbours that are located in:

  • Barcelona
  • Cádiz
  • Huelva
  • Algeciras
  • Bilbao
  • Gijón
  • Ibiza
  • Palma
  • La Coruña
  • Valencia
  • Alicante
