Why do business in Barcelona?

Barcelona is a unique logistics centre in the Mediterranean and in southern Europe thanks to its industrial specialisation and value-added services, the concentration of key infrastructures, such as the port and the airport, and its marketing and distribution network. 

It is internationally recognised as a medium-sized city, suitable for business, entrepreneurship, with a multicultural labour market, with good training, with an innovative, pioneering and established ecosystem, well-connected and with high quality of life.

Logistics and distribution centre

From Barcelona, the sixth largest metropolitan area in Europe and the third Mediterranean coastal city with the largest immediate consumer market in the eastern Mediterranean, there is access to a potential market of 400 million consumers in Europe and the Mediterranean in less than 48 hours. And it also offers a competitive transit time compared to the Asian market. 

Compared to northern European agglomerations, distribution from Barcelona saves costs of between 10 and 15% and a 40-50% reduction in the carbon footprint of logistics chains. Another advantage is the concentration of logistics infrastructures (port, airport and logistics areas) and the presence of national and international logistics operators that offer specialised value-added services for industrial sectors.
