Traffic Regulations

Buffer Zone

It is mandatory that all vehicles entering the loading docks of the Fira, whether self-unloaders or working with CEVA Showfreight, must have been allocated a timeslot. To obtain this, drivers must first take their vehicles to the vehicle registration/buffer zone at the address below.

Sot del Migdia – Truck Waiting Area
Carrer del Foc, s/n , E-08004 Barcelona, Spain
GPS 41°21’34.7”N 2°08’58.3”E

For a full description of the steps your driver must follow, please refer to the ISE 2021 Event Manual

Zero tolerance for parking

There will be a zero-tolerance policy regarding parking at the loading docks; when the assigned unloading or reloading time has elapsed, you are obliged to leave the loading areas immediately. Any vehicles using the exhibition site as a parking area will be towed away without warning.

Vehicle passes
At the buffer zone/vehicle registration area (SOT), only one space is available at any given time. The driver will be issued with a vehicle pass accompanied by a map. The map will show, in detail, the location of the entrance gate. The pass will state the allocated time allowance at the exhibition site.

Self-unloading vehicles
Drivers of vehicles 12 metres or longer that need to be unloaded or reloaded by hand will need to purchase a pass from the registration area at a fee of €100.00 per single entry. Drivers of lorries and vans shorter than 12 metres will need to purchase a pass from the registration area at a fee of €12.00 per entry.

For any additional entries, it is necessary to report to SOT and purchase a new pass.

Breakdown Traffic

During breakdown, vehicles are allowed on to site from the buffer zone/registration area (SOT) at the time slot allocated to them. It is of great importance that you contact CEVA Showfreight to receive a loading slot for the breakdown. Your vehicle can only arrive at the buffer zone a maximum of two hours prior to the designated reloading slot. The buffer zone/registration area cannot be used as a parking area and is not open overnight. There is a strict policy regarding no parking or access to SOT during the show days.

Cars and vans with a height up to 2.1 metres have parking areas available around the venue (parking garages B and F) to allow loading of goods.
