Elements of OTLE

Data, charts and maps

The OTLE's own database, graphs and maps show extensive information on transport and logistics in Spain. The sources used are mainly from the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, in addition to other ministries, international organisations and various external sources.

Indicators

Based on the analysis and interpretation of the information contained in the database, the OTLE prepares a series of indicators on the state and evolution of the transport sector in Spain.

The organisation of the information is structured around seven areas: mobility, socioeconomics, infrastructure and capital, security, sustainability, metropolitan transport and logistics

Annual and topical reports

The OTLE produces an annual report which presents and analyses the information collected throughout the year on various aspects of transport and its socioeconomic context.

As a complement to the report, a methodological annex presents the main technical issues applied and provides guidance on the use of the information presented.

In addition, each year one of the aspects covered by the OTLE is selected and analysed in greater depth in a topical report that is separate from the annual report.

In the latest edition of the Observatory, presented in May 2022, the report was structured in the following sections:

  • Improvements and modifications to the report and the Observatory in 2021.
  • Mobility, competitiveness, safety and sustainability of transport in Spain.
  • Logistics in Spain.

Conferences

Each year a conference is held to disseminate the main contents and results of the Spanish Transport and Logistics Observatory and to serve as a meeting point for the sector.

The 9th annual OTLE day took place on 26 may 2022, This year the conference has been broadcast in streaming, people could decide the best way to attend the presentation of the main results of the OTLE Annual Report.

Pilot mobility study

During 2018, the Ministry of Public Works carried out a pilot and experimental study, applying Big Data technology, replacing the classic methodology used to date, to define interprovincial passenger mobility. The main results of the study are the definition of trip matrices and stage matrices.
