Estrategia Logistica España

This initiative reflects the acknowledgment of the importance Logistics.

The document (click on the image to download) starts with the European orientation and positioning of Spain. Then analyses the regulatory framework and status of demand, offer and infrastructure. It sets principles and directions and finally defines 18 specific  actions, that you can find in Chapter 13.

The actions that I like the most are:

3.- Liberalization of rail transportation

4.- Education in Supply Chain

8.- Evaluate potential increase of max authorized weight and vehicle dimension for road transport

18.- Improve connectivity of ports with their hinterland

Do you thing others are more important? Please share your point of view.
