INTERNATIONAL GOODS SHIPPING

Our extensive experience in international goods shipping enables us to offer quality import and export services and to process the necessary documentation for sea freight imports and exports through our customs agents.

We operate in the world’s major ports, offering logistics services in the food, construction, aerospace, car, food and drinks, fashion, home and decoration, health and pharmaceutical, industrial projects, and renewable energy industries, to name but a few.

VALUE-ADDED SERVICES FOR YOUR SHIPMENTS

Customs clearance

Customs procedures are a very important part of the supply chain, as all goods exported from and imported into Spain must go through customs.

A good approach can not only save critical time but can also optimise the process from a financial point of view, with a detailed study.

Hire our customs brokerage service and optimise the customs and tax aspects of your commercial operations.

GOODS INSURANCE

All goods are susceptible to problems arising from unforeseen circumstances or accidents, anything from a minor breakage to the complete disappearance of the goods. Therefore, as well as selecting the most suitable packaging and packing for the cargo, it is always advisable to insure the goods.

Insurance generally only covers damage that goods may suffer from their dispatch at origin to their delivery, including loading and unloading, handling and possible transfers from one means of transport to another during transportation.

We have general, medical and food-grade warehouses, warehouses for organic produce, for dangerous goods, and warehouses approved by customs for different customs regimes.

SHIPPING COMPANY IN SPAIN

Import and export to and from Spain

International shipments are subject to customs and tax regulations which depend on the countries involved and must always be taken into account. Depending on the Incoterms under which the operation is carried out, the exporter has to deliver the goods to a particular place so that they may be collected by the importer. Therefore, the obligations of the exporter do not always end, nor do those of the importer always begin, when the goods arrive at the port of destination.

The seller acts as the exporter or shipper and the buyer acts as the importer or consignee.

SHIPPING ROUTES

Importing and exporting to and from Spain…

Spain’s geographical position makes it a strategic country as far as shipping is concerned. The country is located very close to the axis of the main shipping route, the circum-equatorial corridor linking North America, Europe and Pacific Asia through the Suez Canal, the Strait of Malacca and the Panama Canal. America communicates with Mediterranean ports and countries through routes that pass through the Straits of Gibraltar to Asia through the Suez Canal. Spain’s position between Europe and America and between Europe and Africa make it the main logistics platform in southern Europe.
