Montepino Logística, one of the largest logistics developers and asset managers in Spain, is also an advocate for equality within the logistics sector. 60% of the company's staff are women, which is almost triple the sector average; according to the European Commission, only 22% of people working in logistics in Europe are women.

Right from the beginning, the Aragonese company committed to including women in its team; "not to meet quotas," Montepino staff clarified, "but because we value professionals and their merits above everything else." As a result, the company is "a mirror image of the situation in Spanish universities, where almost 6 out of every 10 graduates are women."

This has also led to a significant rise in the number of women in management positions. While in Spain women are in 34% of leadership positions, and in logistics this figure is even lower at 25%, Montepino's percentage is again higher, with women leading 50% of the company's different departments.

The Accounting department is fully staffed by women, as is the Legal department, where all team members, including the legal director, are female.

Marketing and Communication is also led by a woman, while Human Resources is run by a female talent manager. Their team leader is also a woman.

The Property Management department, meanwhile, consists of 66% women, and the Control area is 50% women and led by a woman. In the Finance department, one third of the staff are women, and in the Development area, woman make up 46% of the team.

These figures demonstrate how Montepino is "breaking down barriers in a professional sector that has traditionally been monopolised by men." The company's contribution to equal opportunities, they explain, "is the result of the changing society we live in, where the professionalisation of women and the impact of new technologies are leading to changes in teams and professional interests, including in the logistics sector."
