The aim of this operation is to facilitate trade exchanges between Northeast Asia, Southern Europe, and North Africa.
The centre’s logistics partners include FM Logistic and Taewoong Logistics, which has made it possible to increase the number of warehouse modules for the platform from one to four.
In the case of Korean logistics, it is the first warehouse that the company will manage in Europe. It will also be FM Logistic’s first in Barcelona’s ZAL.
The centre has an initial surface area of 9,129 square metres and work is already underway with the Tax Agency so that it can operate as a temporary storage warehouse (ADT). Later, the idea is that it can also operate as a public bonded warehouse (DAP), i.e. with authorisation from Customs to store, without time limit, non-EU goods without paying taxes until they reach their destination.
“We want to turn Barcelona into the main port for arrivals of goods by sea in southern Europe and North Africa, given that it has all the favourable conditions for this”, said Montserrat Maggi, director of business development at FM Logistic. For his part, Jordi Torrent, general manager of B2B Logistics, encouraged companies to land in the Barcelona ZAL. “B2B Logistics is the best partner in Barcelona for efficient distribution in southern Europe,” he said.
RJ’s team advising B2B Logistics was led by Roger Pla and Carlos Fernández, partner and associate of the Real Estate Law department.
