About us

The Canary Cluster of Transport and Logistics (CCTL) is a group of enterprises, institutions and business agents in relation to the transport and logistics sector in the Canary Islands. The relationships and the connections between its members are based on common interests in this particular sector, and therefore gives them a competitive advantage over new challenges of globalization which includes the development of more world-class clusters in Europe through internationalization and excellence.

The CCTL's mission is to improve the competitiveness of the production process by putting together and liaising all value chain's actors, namely producers, buyers, suppliers, research and academic institutions, policy-makers and other public authorities.

The SALT is strategic for the transport, logistics and distribution sector, but also for other sectors of the local economy. This professional fair offers important opportunities to enterprises and entities as it promotes new possibilities for business and commercial contacts, to share knowledge and experiences and to discover new and innovating elements.
