Improve your international maritime transport from or to Bilbao.
Logisber has an office in Bilbao and we are therefore closely connected with its port, which is a central enclave in Atlantic Europe and is connected with the main ports, especially those in America and Northern Europe. It provides a range of services connecting it with 800 ports all over the world, and records more than 35 million tons of traffic annually, of which 21 million tons are liquid bulk, and around 600,000 TEUs.
As Bilbao is a port where goods leave and enter its area of influence, Logisber has different certifications that authorize it to provide this maritime activity, such as that of the Chemical Distribution Institute, CDI, which guarantees that our services for the maritime transport of products from the chemical industries are safe and of high quality.
At Logisber we are committed to tailoring our services and we adapt to the particularities of each cargo and the needs of each client. And it is precisely from Bilbao that we operate our Chartering or Conventional Freight division.
Through it, we offer alternative solutions to customers depending on the traffic and type of product. Break Bulk shipments for various shippers are becoming more and more common and, at Logisber Bilbao, we try to promote this type of traffic for goods linked to the iron and steel, machinery, and automotive sectors, among others.
What international air transport services do we offer in Bilbao?
In terms of air freight, the main infrastructure is Bilbao Airport, which moves around 100,000 kilograms of goods every year. From here, Logisber can organize shipments that need the speed offered by airplanes and air transport.
As freight forwarders and customs agents with an office in Bilbao, we are accredited by the International Air Transport Association, IATA, and, as a distinctive and substantial element, we have the Good Distribution Practices, or GDP certificate for pharmaceutical products.
Find out about our wide range of land and multimodal transport options in Bilbao.
Bilbao and its area of influence have connections via intermodal rail services with logistics areas in Vitoria, Burgos, Madrid, Guadalajara, Sevilla, Zaragoza, Navarra, Barcelona, Castellón, Valencia and Murcia.
For land transport, by road or by rail, the Bilbao area is connected to most of the Iberian Peninsula. Its road infrastructure, especially highways, connect the Basque capital with the main Spanish cities and with Europe, with a border land point in France which is Irún. As for areas with logistics activities, Bilbao has a network of dry ports and multimodal platforms in the towns of Azuqueca, Coslada, Villafría, Júndiz, Plaza, Nonduermas, Tudela, Pancorbo and Arasur.
For this reason, the land transport services offered by Logisber are based on multimodal transport, using either trucks, because of their speed, or rail, because it is a much more sustainable mode of transport and contributes to reducing the carbon footprint of exporting and importing companies.
