Alonso Group incorporates to its forwarding division All Ways Cargo, one of the largest freight forwarders in Portugal
The national and international expansion of Alonso Group‘s forwarding division continues to develop and consolidate in new geographical areas. The holding has just added to the project one of the leading freight forwarders in the Portuguese market, All Ways Cargo.
The company, in line with the strategy developed in the Iberian Peninsula by Alonso Group, maintains its brand and corporate identity that will work in coordination with the firm of the holding. The incorporation of All Ways Cargo allows Alonso Group to consolidate its consolidation strategy in the Iberian Peninsula market where it is developing one of the main projects, the Global Logistics Plan, which will connect the main nerve centres of maritime freight traffic on the peninsula through multi-customer and multi-product trains.
This is a commitment to one of the most important freight forwarders in the Portuguese market, specialists in sea, air and land transport. Created in 1993, the company has more than 70 employees, professionals of recognised prestige and extensive experience in the sector. All Ways Cargo currently has offices in Lisbon, Oporto and Marinha Grande.
On the other hand, Alonso Group will also have the outstanding network of All Ways Cargo agents, always under the premise of maximum quality service in a context of a globalised economy.
Delegation in Cape Verde, gateway to the African continent
All Ways Cargo is characterized by its coverage and versatility in the entire Portuguese market, as well as having a branch in Cape Verde, located in a strategic geographical point that serves as a gateway to the African continent. This location also allows for greater connections with countries such as Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau and Sao Tome and Principe, former Portuguese colonies and today’s emerging markets.
The Portuguese freight forwarder works with the Maghreb countries (Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia) through regular services, both full load and groupage (LCL/FCL) by land and container.
In this way, Alonso Group goes one step further to increase its presence in Africa, a key today for the consolidation of any global operator.
