During the Christmas season, Alonso Group continues to show its solidarity for the benefit of the most underprivileged groups in society. The holding participates in three far-reaching campaigns that show its interest in contributing to a better future. Mensajeros de la Paz, Padre Ángel's NGO, Aportem and Doctors Without Borders are the recipients of these charitable initiatives.
Alonso Group continues to promote its national and international freight forwarding division with the addition of All Ways Cargo, one of the most outstanding freight forwarders in Portugal. Specialists in sea, air and land transport, it has more than 70 employees and offices in Lisbon, Oporto and Marinha Grande. It also has a branch in Cape Verde, the gateway to the African continent.
Alonso Group's multimodal logistics platform has just acquired a new state-of-the-art reach stacker machine. With a load capacity of up to 10 tons, it is a telescopic stacker that integrates an energy efficiency system that can reduce costs by up to 15%. The acquisition is part of Setemar's business policy of purchasing increasingly efficient equipment.
The spirits brand once again participated in FIHAV 2019, which brings together representatives from more than 60 countries. It is one of the most important fairs in the Caribbean. Legendario's participation in this edition has been very special as it coincided with the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the foundation of the city of Havana, an event in which the whole country has been involved through initiatives of all kinds.
A delegation from Alonso Group has travelled to Helsinki (Finland) to present its Global Logistic Plan at Digital Transport Days. The event brings together the main players involved in intelligent transport solutions at European level. The summit has been organised by INEA (Innovation and Networks Executive Agency), an organisation that depends on the European Commission.
