German forwarder with head office in Koln and branches in Troisdorf, Duren, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Pirmasens, Hamburg and Stuttgart as in Poland Wroclaw and Warsaw.

As these companies are leading experts in Portuguese market for a long time, naturally Porlogis provide strong groupage and part loads regular lines with Finland and Germany.

In 2003 Porlogis starts offering integrated logistic services in Perafita warehouse, based on two main areas:

- Traditional services (handling – stock in and out – Picking)
- Value - added services (Labeling – Stock control - Distribution)

Following the client’s needs, Porlogis extended its services to new markets:

  Groupage services to Baltic Countries, Russia and east Europe supported by its partners networking.
