Transitex internationalization strategy continues in China

  • Recently strong markets for non-EU exports from Portugal have slowed down for various reasons, particularly in the Portuguese-speaking countries.

    In Angola´s case, among other factors, due to the fact that the economy is highly dependable on the oil´s market price whose value is now less than half the value compared to the previous year. In Brazil, the huge devaluation of the Real also discourages purchases in large quantity and facilitates their own exports.

    These are just two examples that help to understand why, more than ever, it has become essential for companies to look for other markets, try to know them and seek the best strategy to try to be present in them.

    China, as a trading partner of Portugal, has been gaining progressively greater importance especially in recent years. Not only because of the Chinese direct investment in the economy, which has been significant, but also on account of a targeted increase of Portuguese exports to a market in which the consumption of imported products has evidenced a large increase in demand.

    On a global perspective, China is almost always a major trading partner of most countries and particularly those in which Transitex is present with its own offices.

    Within this framework, we took the step to enter this country.

    Transitex was the first freight forwarder of Portuguese equity to enter mainland China! We are listed by local AICEP as a fully functional logistics provider.

    After almost three months since the opening of the office in Shanghai, we can state that we are already 100% active and our local team is duly trained and adjusted to the corporate culture.

    We have already handled air and containerized cargo to/from almost every country where we operate, which is a great source of pride and representative of the common effort that has been made by everyone!
