Exporting to Asia
In the last decade, maritime transport to and from Asia has been increasing and it represents the main commercial route in the world. Because of that most Asian countries have commercial agreements with Spain that can help you in your exports, but it’s important you are aware of each country’s laws in particular and what using their ports means in terms of documents, cargo and even waiting times.
How much does it cost?
Sending your cargo to Asia has multiples costs associated. On the hand there is the kind of container you choose, your cargo, or the agreed Incoterm, and on the other you have to remember to fill in and present all relevant documents and permits, taxes, and surcharges.

International relationships between Spain and the Asian countries vary depending on the country.
In general terms, the main countries to which Spain exports are China, Japan and South Korea, but looking just at the ASEAN countries the top3 are Singapore, Thailand and Philippines.
The pandemic has made its toll into Spanish exports to Asia but our operations to China (which has reached 9th place as Spanish client worldwide) and Taiwan, have remained stable and even increased despite the closing of their borders and main economic operations. In Japan’s case, although Spanish exports have fallen they haven’t done so as much as the EU average.
Among the most exported products to the Asian continent we find pork meat, vehicle parts and components, pharmaceutical products and chemicals.
Other products that stand up are:
Aircrafts and navigation equipment to South Korea and Singapore. In the first countries’ case exports have diminished greatly in the last year so the gross volume of Spanish exports to South Korea has been largely affected. In Singapore’s case Spain did send a big Airbus shipment that makes comparisons to past exports complicated to calculate.
Brandy and Jerez (sherry) exported to Philippines, as well as products already mentioned like meat and machinery.
