Not all of Dry Ports potential is used because there is no planning methodology to help decision-making. The aim of
this research is to gather all the factors influencing the choice of location of Dry Ports and set the weighting of each factor using the DELPHI methodology. The results give greater importance to the aspects considered in the classical theories of industrial location. However, setting the most appropriate location to place a Dry Port is a geographical multidisciplinary problem, with significant economic, social and environmental implications.
Finally, we present a practical case consisting in an evaluation of the location quality of Spanish Dry Ports based on the result of DELPHI and a linear weighted Multicriteria decision analysis.
