Can you describe the benefits of your FTZ?
Our FTZ has the best location in the country and one of the best in Latin America. Barranquilla has access to all kinds of transport, by land, by river and by sea. It is a great advantage that enables us to be competitive on transport costs.
We are very close to the USA and Mexico, about 1,800km. To Spain we are 7,200km away. We are near to the Caribbean ports of Barranquilla (17km), Santa Marta (120km) and Cartagena (140km), these ports handle 80% of the export cargo from Colombia. This FTZ is located at the north of Barranquilla, very close to the residential areas, health services, universities and schools which is convenient for those who work here.
All FTZs have the same tax benefits but we have added value here because we are in partnership with the companies helping them to start their operations, also by providing the best service to them by reacting to their requirements as quickly as possible.
