Abstract

Currently many companies are forced to go outside due to the economic situation and in many cases, as the sole alternative to ensure their survival. In this context the logistic performs a leading role. To promote and to take advantage of an efficient logistic management is key to exports. In this sense, dry ports constitute the required nexus for road-rail-sea intermodal transport. The establishment of a dry port in Antequera would boost the export and import flows to and from Andalusia with the rest of the world.
