Partida Logistics Marks Centennial Milestone with Ambitious National

Celebrating 100 years, the maritime customs agency unveils strategic plans for new branches and enhanced services in Spain’s key regions.


In its 100th anniversary year, customs agency Partida Logistics is focusing on its geographical expansion strategy, with a primary emphasis on the domestic sector, planning the imminent opening of new branches.

MADRID. As outlined by the company’s Commercial and Business Expansion Director, Álvaro Partida, “the organization’s expansion primarily targets the national arena.” Indeed, “we will soon inaugurate our new branch in Almería to be closer to our clients, streamline customs procedures, and grow in other strong sectors in the Levante area,” he explains to Diario del Puerto. He further anticipates, “shortly, we will announce the opening of another branch, which will propel the company and, above all, enhance the operability for our clients.”

Partida Logistics specializes in sectors such as perishables, automotive, fashion or textiles, industrial, live animals, and dangerous goods (ADR). However, the company manages any merchandise its clients may require and holds certifications as an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO), Compliance, and Halal. In this regard, Álvaro Partida specifies that this expansion strategy aims primarily to strengthen its services. In addition to proximity to clients, Partida intends, through its new branches, to promote its Foreign Trade Advisory Division (AEO, customs figures for warehouses, VAT and tariff taxation, plastic taxes…); boost Customs Training (Incoterms, types of sales, customs and pre-customs declarations, tax rates, and taxation); process customs declarations and coordinate import-export operations for goods transported by land and sea; clear goods from Morocco, entering through the ports of Algeciras and Motril; handle export clearances destined for the United Kingdom; and assist in traffic operations through the Almería-Nador maritime line.

Restructuring Currently, Partida clears goods not only through the Port of Algeciras but also through those in Malaga, Valencia, Barcelona, or Vigo, among other key Spanish ports. Its goal is to clear goods through European customs. However, Partida already provides services in other international customs ports through strategically located partners in Morocco, Portugal (Sines), France (Perpignan, Hendaye), the Netherlands (Rotterdam), the United Kingdom, and Mexico.

In the year the company celebrates a century of history, it has also initiated an internal restructuring after selling all its shares to the Spanish investment fund, Everwood. “This decision is made to retain the human capital that has been with us for so many years and, above all, to offer a hopeful business future. We are in the process of restructuring our company, expanding goals, expanding both in our country and in Morocco and European countries, to be able to meet the new demands of the global market,” noted Partida’s Managing Director, Fernando Partida, during the anniversary celebration.

“The era of globalization also compels us to be prepared for market openings, the entry of major competitors, or European centralized clearance, which will entail a significant shift in current work habits. For this new scenario that lies ahead, economic strength and having abundant human and technological resources will be decisive,” pointed out Fernando Partida. Furthermore, looking ahead, Partida is committed to customer loyalty by providing agility through technology. “With the investment in information technology that we have made, we believe we will be at the forefront of the customs sector,” explains Álvaro Partida.
