The South East of Spain is one of Spain’s most important regions. For this reason we decided that, in order to increase our coverage of Spain, we needed to offer direct services to and from Valencia, which would enable us to provide better transit times to and from the surrounding key areas; Castellon, Alicante, and Murcia to name but a few.
Working closely with our new partners in the region, Moldtrans Group, in January 2014 we commenced our twice-weekly export and import groupage service (minimum), and this is growing consistently.
As with Barcelona, we also utilise Valencia as a transit hub for some of our road freight services to the Balearic Islands, consisting of Majorca (Mallorca), Minorca (Menorca), Ibiza and Formentera. During the summer months our partners load up to ten trailers per day to these holiday destinations which includes some of our UK exports which transship ate their depot.
- Our export service to Valencia is at least twice-weekly, leaving every Tuesday and Friday
- Our import service from Valencia likewise is at least twice-weekly, also leaving every Tuesday and Friday
- ADR and temperature-controlled facilities are available on most departures, export or import
- Transit times vary between 2-5 days depending on the particular origin and destination
The areas primary exports are foodstuffs and beverages, ceramic tiles, furniture, textiles and iron products to name but a few. One of our largest exports to Valencia is chemicals, in particular fertilisers which protect the crops grown locally and in the surrounding areas of Murcia. A substantial amount of the crops grown in this region end up on our supermarket shelves.
Valencia is also an important seaport, being the largest in the Mediterranean, and the second largest of Spain in terms of total throughput.
