Location and Communications

Zalia en el corazón de Asturias

The multimodal platform in the heart of Asturias.

ZALIA is located in the heart of Asturias, at the road junction of the Cantábrico Highway (A-8) and the Silver Route (A-66) in the municipality of Gijón. This area of more than 400 hectares is linked to the Ports of Gijón and Avilés via railway and high-capacity roads.

Location is particularly one of the strengths of this project aimed at establishing a logistics and industrial activity area in Asturias. San Andrés de los Tacones (Gijón) was arranged as a huge communication junction in the heart of the region due to its proximity to Ranón Airport and to the Port of Avilés and El Musel Port of Gijón which can be reached via railway and high-capacity roads.

Zalia will therefore constitute a defined framework where companies will count on an added value being this consolidated industrial area with unbeatable logistics services which will lead to an increase in supply chain efficiency and the flow of goods by enabling air, road and maritime links and reducing costs.

This strategic location together with heavy investments in new infrastructures will make it possible to connect Zalia to the world and turn it into the great logistics platform of northwest Spain fully integrated into the worldwide transport and distribution network as the central axis of the Atlantic Arc.

Zalia Communications


The Logistics and Industrial Activity Area of Asturias is designed as a port and regional mixed logistics area to become the essential structure for a powerful scheme of different modes of transport (road, rail, maritime and air) needed to distribute goods to all markets.

Therefore, Zalia means a great multimodal platform:

  • It will count on new accesses to link the ports and the airport by means of a great network of high-capacity roads: A-8, A-66, AS-I, AS-II.
  • The new railway terminal together with Pajares diversion will enable faster and more fluent communications with the meseta which will provide new ways to transport goods and passengers thus improving links between Asturian ports and the hinterland.
  • Zalia will form a link in the value chain of the motorways of the sea and will be part of Gijón-Nantes motorway, and therefore of Madrid-Paris axis which links two motorways through a convenient, fast, economic and safe maritime service.
  • It is also an investment based on the development of air freight through Asturias Airport located 15 km away from Avilés and 40 km from Gijón.
