Since our introduction to the Portuguese market in 2009, our business with Portugal has remained steady. Of our core services, Portugal is one of the few countries where we have found it difficult to find a commercial partner who understands our values and can match our exacting requirements.
Over the years we have worked quietly with several different companies at different periods of our involvement with this market. This has not disadvantaged our service, in fact probably the contrary, as it has, and still does, provide us with a greater flexibility to manage the route into Portugal depending on the location, commodity, and size of shipment.
Our freight services to Portugal
Offering a minimum of twice-weekly road freight groupage services to and from the primary areas of Porto and Lisbon, we can carry part load, full load, and express consignments, including the ability to carry dangerous goods on most departures, fully in accordance with ADR and IMDG regulations.
- Lisbon – Direct every Tuesday & Friday
- Porto – Direct every Tuesday & Friday
- Faro & the Algarve – Via Lisbon every Tuesday & Friday and direct at least weekly
- Madeira & the Azores – Via Lisbon every Tuesday & Friday
From the North of Portugal, either en route or via our Porto partner we often back deliver freight to Vigo and North West Spain, La Coruna, Pontevedra and Porrino to name a few.
Additionally, through our Lisbon partner we can also provide services to Cape Verde off the coast of Africa.
As Iberian specialists, whether it be a box to Faro, a couple of pallets of paint to Sintra, or a part load of dangerous goods packed in IBCs to the Algarve, we are able to cater for our client’s needs, whatever they may be.
Our Partners in Portugal
As mentioned above, we work in conjunction with several partners across Portugal and these can be found on their respective pages.
In addition to these relationships, utilising the distribution services of some of our international hauliers, located at several points from north of Porto, through central Portugal at Coimbra and Nazare, and to the south of Lisbon, we are able to provide a more flexible and competitive solution, giving access to all trailer types, including ADR as well as temperature controlled.
