The international logistics provider continues its expansion in Western Europe and is opening a branch office in Barcelona, Spain. The new office provides ideal connections to the country’s main transport hubs and allows cargo-partner to offer a wide range of air, sea, land transport and logistics services for its customers in the region.
cargo-partner continues its expansion course and is adding yet another new country to its global network. Following the needs of its customers in Western Europe, cargo-partner will open its first branch office in Spain as of September 1, 2022. Oriol Asturgo, Managing Director of cargo-partner in Spain, explains: “The decision to open an office in Barcelona was driven by the needs of our existing customers in the region. Our new setup in this strategic location allows us benefit from cargo-partner’s comprehensive network of offices and warehouses throughout Europe and to support the whole cargo-partner group with a full range of transport and logistics services.”
The new office in Barcelona brings cargo-partner closer to its customers in the country, which is one of the EU’s largest economies. Spain ranks 6th in GDP among EU countries, with the logistics segment representing 10% of the country’s GDP. Barcelona provides ideal connections to all major logistics hubs in Spain, including the ports of Barcelona, Valencia and Algeciras, the airports of Barcelona and Madrid, and the road transport hubs of Barcelona, Madrid, La Jonquera, Irún and Zaragoza. From this vantage point, cargo-partner is ideally poised to serve its customers in a variety of industries, including the automotive, foodstuffs and retail sectors.
The cargo-partner team in Spain offers a complete portfolio of transport and logistics services, from air and sea freight to national and international trucking, rail transport and warehousing services. “Our office in Barcelona complements our network in Western Europe and allows us to benefit from synergies with other offices in the region to achieve faster transit times in road transport. In addition, we will use Spain as a hub for air and sea freight to speed up shipments from Europe to the Americas,” states Oriol Asturgo. The team in Barcelona currently counts six members and is expected to grow to fourteen employees by the end of the year.
