Service Information

Porto, or Oporto as often referred, is the second most populous city in Portugal and probably best known for its fortified wine – Vinho do Porto, or rather ‘Port’ as most commonly so called. An abstract fact regarding Porto’s wine production is that the Douro region is the third oldest protected wine region in the world, Chianti, in Italy, being the oldest, established in 1716.

Port wine aside, Porto (or Oporto) is an important area for trade to and from the UK, and our first Portuguese partner (since closed) was based in Porto back in 2002/3. However, following their closure, with our hands slightly burned, we left Portugal alone for a while to maintain our focus on Italy.

It was some years later, during 2009, when the real start to our service came as a result of building new relationships with several good international hauliers and local distribution companies based around the main distribution centre of Matosinhos.

Our freight service to Porto

Predominantly providing a road freight service to Porto, we can also provide sea freight services into the Port of Leixoes, Portugal’s northernmost sea port.

Our partner in Porto

If you arrived at this page via our main Portugal page, you will have read that, of our core services, Portugal is the only country where we have found it difficult to find a commercial partner who really understands our values and business ethics.

However, this difficulty has certainly not disadvantaged our service, in fact possibly to 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.

Constant contact is top drawer

Mike. Lot’s going on this week, and a fair few changes to boot!

Just wanted to say thanks to you and your team for all your help over the last couple of days. The flexibility, fast responses and constant contact is top drawer and really made the difference to us.
