Ferries to Spain

The Mediterranean Sea has many important shipping routes and connects three continents; therefore both personal and business customers may be looking for freight ferries to Spain. Freight ferries to Spain can be categorised by four areas of departure; the UK, the Canary Islands, North Africa and Italy.

Travellers from the UK will arrive on Spain’s northern Atlantic coast. P&O Ferries serve the Portsmouth to Bilbao route, while Brittany Ferries have a service from Plymouth to Santander. These two routes offer a more relaxing alternative to the long drive through France to Spain.

Another important route for freight ferries to Spain, is to the port of Cadiz on Spain’s southern Atlantic coast. Freight ferries from Canary Islands such as Gran Canaria and Tenerife arrive in Cadiz. Although, there are longer sailings to other Spanish Mediterranean ports such as Barcelona and Valencia.

The Mediterranean Sea on Spain’s southern coastline is also the narrowest point between Europe and North Africa; therefore, this is an economically important shipping route. Freight ferries to Spain, from Morocco, arrive in the ports of Malaga and Almeria. On the other hand, travellers from Algeria might like to sail to Almeria or take the longer crossing to Alicante.

The final important crossings for freight ferries to Spain depart from Italy, to the ports of Valencia and Barcelona. Once again, freight passengers from Italy avoid a long drive through the south of France, with a relaxing journey across the northern Mediterranean Sea. Passengers should look out for Grimaldi Freight, who offer freight ferries to Spain from Salerno. This journey takes 36 hours and they offer three crossings each week.
