Spain’s geopolitical location, the historical, cultural and linguistic ties with Latin American countries, as well as the road, port and airport infrastructure developed in recent decades, make the country particularly attractive for the development of the freight transport and logistics sector.
Spain has a large port and airport infrastructure (with more than 250 ports, both private and state-owned, and more than 20 airports). There are numerous Free Trade Zones in these facilities, both in the peninsula and on its islands, where processing, selection, packaging, exhibition, sampling, and other commercial operations can be carried out duty free.
Due to its geographical location and the cultural and linguistic proximity between Spain and Latin America, Spain is the ideal entry passport for Latin American companies to the European Union market, in view of the protectionist escalation that we could find in other countries of the world. In Mexico alone there are around 6,000 companies and subsidiaries of Spanish companies and their presence in other countries is as significant for the economy and industry as it can be in that country.
Our specialized and internationally experienced team has the resources and knowledge to advise clients on all key aspects of this sector, from investment structuring, permit and license applications, insurance, and tax and administrative compliance. Furthermore, we have the fundamental support of foreign firms when required by the situation and the client.
