The Dry Port of the Community of Madrid is located in Coslada, which turns the city into a strategic point. The majority of the companies which transport important commodities that operate in Spain have branch offices in Coslada. Another economic asset is its proximity to the Airport of Barajas, where a great percentage of its population is employed.
Migration: there are 17,000 foreign-born inhabitants, who represent 12% of the total population. Most are Romanians, though there are also small numbers of Chinese, Latin Americans, Guineans, Vietnamese and Indians.
Coslada is covered and connected to the Madrid metropolitan area by the line (L7) of the Madrid Metro in May 2007, local and regional bus lines, a commuter trains line (C-1,C-2 and C-7) and several major freeways (A-2 (Madrid-Barcelona), M-40,M-45,M-50) and toll highways (R-3).
