Set up a Transporting and Storage Company in Spain

The manner in which a transporting and storage company can develop its activities in Spain depends on the types of products it delivers, the means of transportation and the type of transportation (national or international). Also, it is necessary to conclude insurance policies for the respective goods and products and to respect specific transit schedules.  

Thus, when opening a company in Spain in this sector it is highly advisable to receive professional assistance on the applicable legislation, necessary permits and licenses and on the conditions in which a delivery can be concluded in this country. In this sense, our team of specialists in company registration in Spain can provide complete assistance.

Regardless of the manner in which the delivery of goods is concluded (by air, land, sea), a transporting and storage company in Spain will generally provide the same types of activities and services, which can be available for both natural persons and legal entities. Below, we describe the main activities of a transporting company that provides air freight services

  • preparing a detailed inventory of the objects that are to be delivered;
  • labelling, measuring and weighting all the products prepared for delivery;
  • preparing the required documentation requested when transporting goods or products;
  • collecting the items from the client’s address and delivering them to the cargo terminal at a local airport

Transportation of products by sea in Spain 

When transporting products by sea, specific documentation has to be concluded as per legislation regulating shipping transportation (which is generally concluded through shipping containers); our team of consultants in company formation in Spain may advise on the maritime legislation applicable for cargo deliveries

A company that delivers products by sea should provide the necessary customs documentation prior to the actual transportation, be able to offer a suitable container that could satisfy the needs of the respective load, handle individual packing and labelling and prepare a comprehensive inventory.
