How are products exported and imported from Madrid?
Madrid is one of the most important logistics centres in Spain. The main highways for land transport run through the city and the surrounding region. This road network favours the transit of goods and also the presence of industrial premises, warehouses and buildings used for logistics distribution.
The presence of the Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas airport is an added value for imports and exports as air transport reduces transit times for logistics operations.
Rail transport is also very active. This is all thanks to the development of several dry ports in the central part of the Iberian Peninsula, which facilitate the transfer of large containers of goods by train to the main ports on the coast, heading for destinations all over the world via maritime transport.
In order to import or export products from Madrid it is essential to have the support of an experienced logistics operator such as Logisber. We will help you with the entire process, from the beginning of the commercial shipment to its arrival at destination.
In the case of a national transport with Madrid as the origin or the destination
If the flow of goods is within the Iberian Peninsula or to or from the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands or the autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla, taxation must be taken into account, especially in regions outside the Iberian Peninsula, as taxes can vary.
Usually, within the peninsula, the most popular form of transport is by land, but if geographical conditions delay shipments, air transport may be the preferred option. For non-peninsular exports or imports within the country, you can choose to send goods by ship or by plane to cross the barrier of the Mediterranean Sea or the Atlantic Ocean.
In the case of international transport outside Madrid
If the goods are going to be shipped outside Spain, it is important to be aware of the import and export requirements outside the European Union, with special attention to the United Kingdom, North Africa and other continents. It is essential to know the tariffs, customs formalities, how the goods must be labelled, etc. Land transport is the most common form of transport in freight forwarding operations between European Union countries.
Attention must be paid to products that require specific logistics such as food or medicine that need to travel in temperature controlled conditions in order to avoid breaking the cold chain. Similarly, the transportation of dangerous goods or waste requires special control.
