Poole to Bilbao route details

Our twice weekly service from Poole to Bilbao operated by Pelican provides a freight-only service for unaccompanied vehicles and can accommodate up to 12 drivers.

Poole is easily accessed with good road links from the M3/M27, A31 and A35.

Bilbao is close to the small village of Zierbena. To reach the port, follow signs from the motorway to Portua and then Ferry. Zierbena lies approximately 13 miles (21km) to the west of Bilbao and is accessible from both the west via the A8 (Santander) and the east (Madrid, Barcelona and SW France).
