Positioned on the French border in the Basque region of Spain, Irun is a strategic town insofar as we can distribute shipments to Southern France as well as Northern Spain. In fact, feedback from our clients would suggest that by using Ital Logistics for their freight to Biarritz, Bayonne and as far up as Bordeaux, we are more competitive than many a dedicated French carrier, and can actually offer a faster transit time, often delivering first en route to Irun.
Getting back to Spain, from our Irun depot we can effect timely deliveries throughout the area; Bilbao, Vitoria, Vizcaya, Logrono and Pamplona as the main freight destinations. Irun is also an artery into the rest of Spain, the western half at least, and many trailers will continue on to deliver freight to Burgos on their way to reload, often from Madrid.
Furthermore, our Irun depot operates a daily service to Portugal, both Porto and Lisbon, and as such we can offer next day deliveries should be need to unload Portuguese cargo in Irun for other logistical reasons.
- Our export and import services to and from Irun and surrounding areas is at least twice-weekly in each direction consisting of multiple trailers upwards of four each week, most being able to carry dangerous goods
- Transit time direct is approximately 3 days
It’s strange but it’s true. Many of our customers, and even new employees of the company often comment that they never realised how busy Ital Logistics actually is on Spain. Synonymous with Italy by virtue of our name, the strength of our Spanish service is often under-estimated. In fact, we are now loading an average of 18 groupage trailers every week to Spain. We must be doing something right!
