BEST logistics solution for ZAL Port

BEST BarcelonaBARCELONA: October 05, 2016. Barcelona Europe South Terminal (BEST), part of Hutchinson Ports, is to partner with the Port of Barcelona and Merlin Properties' intermodal logistics platform ZAL Port "to optimize and reduce supply chain costs".

ZAL Ports is located adjacent to BEST with access to a network of highways and three freight rail hubs plus the cargo center at Barcelona El Prat International Airport.

BEST said this combination makes the area an essential logistic node for South and Central Europe.

"This cooperation agreement is a game-changer and will allow logistic operators to find the most cost effective, efficient and reliable supply chains," said Guillermo Belcastro, CEO of BEST. "We believe that the combination of BEST and ZAL will bring real value to the market and enhance Barcelona's position as the main gateway to Southern Europe for Far East traffic."

Barcelona Europe South Terminal (BEST) is the first semi-automated terminal of Hutchinson Ports and is capable of serving multiple mega-vessels simultaneously with an eight-track railway facility connecting to traffic coming from, and destined for, Southern Europe.

Alfonso Martinez, CEO of ZAL Port added: "This cooperation will allow the logistics market to grow, bringing the port new clients with new freight, giving them a complete solution for their logistics chain, creating value through exclusive and unique logistics offerings."
