Logistics Day is celebrated on 16 February, a date that seeks to highlight the importance of logistics and its impact on the business world and society in general. Logistics is a key area in business management, as it is responsible for planning, coordinating and controlling the processes of storage, transport and distribution of products and services.
In Spain, the transport of goods by road is one of the fundamental pillars of logistics and commerce, and represents 90% of goods transport in the country. Trucks are the most widely used means of transport for moving goods, and their importance lies in their ability to reach any destination in Spain and Europe, thanks to the well-developed road network.
The road freight transport sector in Spain is essential for the country’s economy.
The road freight transport sector in Spain is essential to the country’s economy, as it is responsible for moving all types of goods, from raw materials to finished products and consumer goods. Thanks to road transport, goods can be delivered quickly and efficiently, helping to maintain the supply chain and meet market demand.
In addition, road freight transport in Spain has a large number of companies and workers, making it a key sector for job creation and economic development in the country. According to data from the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, in 2020 the transport and storage sector in Spain employed more than 755,000 people.
However, road freight transport also faces significant challenges, such as increased road traffic, environmental impact and the need to renew and modernise the vehicle fleet. To address these challenges, the industry is working to improve the efficiency and sustainability of freight transport by implementing more advanced technologies and using more efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles.
