Renowned in recent decades for its sandy beaches and golf courses stretching along the southernmost coast, the Algarve is a popular tourist location, reported to have taken over a billion euros in 2018.
Undoubtedly 2020 will be completely different, as will many parts of the world whose major source of income is through tourism.
Often asked – “Direct service to Faro? Are you sure?” Well yes we are. The volume of Southern Iberian cargo which we move has increased substantially. The proximity of Portugal, stretching north to south on Spain’s western side, allows us two routes in.
Our freight services to Faro and the Algarve
For smaller groupage consignments to Faro, the ‘conventional’ route is via Lisbon for onward distribution, whilst for larger consignments we can approach Faro from the east, via Seville and Huelva. The direct freight service to Faro by the latter route helps to reduce transit times, whilst also keeping costs down enabling us to provide more competitive rates.
From Faro we can also provide freight services to the rest of the southern coastline of the Algarve; places such as Albufeira, Portimao and Lagos, for example.
- Our export and import road freight service to Faro is twice-weekly, departing every Tuesday and Friday
- Transit times vary between 5 and 7 days depending on the departure day and the route taken
- Whilst not so common for the area, dangerous goods can be transported on this route, although this requires strategic planning in consideration of the large quantity of food related cargoes
And talking of food…oranges, oranges, and more oranges…
If you have visited the Algarve on holiday you would surely have noticed the roadside sellers. Many of the farmers in this area sell their produce to the UK supermarkets – oranges don’t just come from Seville!
