The CLH Group, which is made up of Compañía Logística de Hidrocarburos, CLH S.A. and its subsidiary company, CLH Aviación S.A., is the leading company in Spain for the transportation and storage of oil products. The company has an 85-year long history, as it comes from what used to be (CAMPSA) (Compañía Arrendataria del Monopolio de Petróleos). CLH is the result of the spin-off, in 1992, of the commercial assets of the former CAMPSA that was carried out as the culmination of the process for deregulating the oil sector after the approval of new European Community laws that ended the oil monopoly. The CLH Group's main activity consists of transporting oil products - essentially gasolines, diesels, fuel oils and aviation fuels - from the refineries to the storage facilities the company has distributed across the whole of Spain, where it's customers' tank trucks load these products and deliver them to the end consumers1. CLH currently holds logistics service contracts for the use of its facilities with most of the operators that do business in Spain, and competes with more than a dozen logistics companies that provide the Spanish market with storage and transportation services. The International Energy Agency has given recognition to the flexibility and capacity this integrated storage and transportation system has for responding to unforeseen events2. The company also provides services related to consultancy and advice for international companies in the oil or logistics sectors, gaining its first experiences in countries such as Brazil, Colombia and Oman. Another service that CLH is fostering is strategic storage for European Union countries3. On the other hand, CLH Aviación, created in 1997 and a wholly owned subsidiary of CLH, operates at most of the Spanish airports in the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Islands, offering services for the storage, distribution and into-plane supply of aviation fuels and lubricants. CLH Aviación also provides advice and technical assistance for the installation and maintenance of distribution networks for different types of aviation fuel. The company has been given recognition by outside bodies, for example the highest rating in the world for sustainability in its sector, given by SAM (Sustainable Asset Management)4, the European Seal of Excellence 500+5, various quality certificates from AENOR and the Family-Responsible Company (EFR) seal of approval6.
Royal Decree-Law 6/2000 prohibits any CLH shareholder from holding more than 25% of the total number of company shares.
