transporte de energías renovables

Keys to transporting renewable energy

Spain is one of the main countries worldwide when it comes to the international production of components and materials necessary for the installation of renewable energies. In the transport of renewable energy, we must bear in mind that we are talking about goods that can be very bulky. In most cases, transportation has to be Door to Door even between continents. This also means that we are talking about a high number of containers or shipments of an urgent nature by air. These projects generally have a maturity period of approximately one and a half years. This is because socio-economic, environmental and governmental factors have to be taken into account.

For this reason, and due to the particularities that this service entails, at CST Group we have specialized in the transport of renewable energy in recent years, taking into account certain keys when carrying out this type of logistics.



Keys in the transport of renewable energy


The main types of machinery related to the transport of renewable energy are those related to:

  • Solar energy
  • Wind energy
  • Hydraulics energy
  • Geothermal energy
  • Bioenergy energy

In the transport of this type of merchandise, it is essential that logistics comply with each and every one of the necessary steps to guarantee the efficiency of the service, and avoid problems of time, security, loss or breakage of merchandise. To do this, we thus establish the following keys.


Choice of type of transport


Depending on the characteristics of the machinery to be transported, we must know how to choose the most suitable means of transport.

We will do it by sea if we are talking about a large volume and mass of cargo; by air, when we talk about spare parts or certain urgent maintenance, as it is the fastest means in these cases; or by land, if what we want is to gather all the components in case they arrive from different suppliers and thus make a single shipment, which greatly reduces costs.




Directly related to the previous point, here the programming of departure and arrival dates comes into play; organization with other possible suppliers; review of permits, licenses and paperwork … So that we avoid last minute unforeseen events as much as possible and, thus, we can guarantee maximum efficiency in the service.



We are talking about parts, machinery and in general, very delicate merchandise. It is crucial that the transport complies 100% with all security measures, in order to comply with a zero-incident policy and thus avoid any type of damage to the goods. Let’s not forget that in the transport of renewable energies it is extremely important that we do not overlook anything, since only in this way can we guarantee that no energy company or, failing that, companies that enjoy this type of energy, lose performance in their capacity productive.

Transporting ceramics: What to consider?

Today from CST Group we want to talk about certain points to take into account when transporting ceramics to different countries.

Ceramic is used as a material for different utilitarian and decorative purposes, and that of Spain, due to its historical quality, becomes one of the country’s first exports to different parts of the world. Specifically, the ceramics from Castellón are really famous, which is why there is a high number of transport routes for this material from this point of the peninsula to various parts of the world.

In this post, we explain, among other things, who are the countries that most demand this material and how to transport ceramics safely, ensuring that your merchandise arrives in perfect condition at its destination.



Demoras y ocupaciones en el transporte marítimo

Demurrages and detentions in maritime transport

The transport companies work daily so that the cargo always arrives in the time and manner established at its destination. However, this task can be complicated when at some point in the operation, maritime transport intervenes. In this sector, we have to take into account the concepts of demurrages and detentions in maritime transport and the problems that these can cause us so that the transport is carried out successfully.

Demurrages and detentions in maritime transport are two terms to take into account, since they imply, among others, variable costs that may not have been contemplated at first.

Keep reading and we will briefly explain what they are and how they can affect the international transport of goods.



transporte internacional de mercancías y el brexit

International freight transport and Brexit

After several weeks since the arrival and entry into force of Brexit, the logistics sector continues to adapt to the new situation in terms of international freight transport and Brexit.

Initially, the agreement between the European Union and the United Kingdom promised to be beneficial for both markets, however, the day to day is preventing a flow of goods as smoothly as companies and logistics operators would like.

So what has changed? How should we act in the face of these operations, which are now considered imports and exports?

Read on and find out which customs procedures have to be taken into account for both cases.
