History

  • 2002

  • Founded in the year 2002 in the city of Badajoz, Spain, our main purpose was to extend the hinterland of the Port of Lisbon by creating competitive logistic solutions making Lisbon a valid option and enabling the city to compete on an equal footing with the main Iberian ports.

  • 2005

  • After successfully completing this first goal, Transitex soon spread throughout the Iberian Peninsula and now owns 8 offices, 2 multimodal platforms and various infrastructures which enable cargo handling in full or partial loads from anywhere in Portugal and Spain.

    Specialized in containerized cargoes, both FCL and LCL, Transitex is a reference in today's Iberian market.

  • 2007

  • In 2007, with Mota-Engil holding a stake in the corporation's capital, Transitex achieved a new dynamic, broadening horizons and making internationalization the company's natural and unavoidable future path.

    Using historical and cultural factors as a reference, in addition to the trade relations within the Iberian market, the growth of Transitex has been based on two main pillars:

    - Nations in Southern Africa, with particular emphasis on the Portuguese-speaking countries;
    - Latin America, where Transitex is present from north to south, from Mexico to Argentina.

  • 2012

  • Consolidating this network and paying constant attention to the market's development is the future of Transitex, striving to continue to grow in a sustainable way, as it has up until now and increasingly globalizing our services.

  • 2014

  • New offices in Recife and Curitiba, Brazil, and a return to Europe with new offices in Genoa and Salerno, as Transitex Italy. Obtaining the first warehouse with customs procedure in Portugal allows the beginning of the supply of LCL consolidation services to destinations where Transitex has its own offices.

     

  • 2015

  • The opening of Transitex China, with offices in Shanghai, marks the arrival of Transitex to Asia.

    For the first time, Transitex offers in Latin America an international road transport service with its own fleet.

     

  • 2016

Transitex Lithuania reopens and the opening of new offices in Poland, Sweden and Turkey are being considered, as well as in other geographical locations in Latin America and Southern Africa, maintaining the company's focus on areas where it has been developing its activity.
