We are proud to announce that Cargolândia Portugal is, as of today, part of the Manuport Logistics (MPL) Group. Thanks to this acquisition, we are setting foot in Portugal with 11 new colleagues, meaning we are now able to offer our customers an even wider range of services.

Cargolândia Portugal delivers a broad spectrum of services, including project cargo, sea, air, road and rail freight — making it a perfect match with Manuport Logistics. This acquisition is part of Manuport Logistics' global development strategy, consisting of the expansion of our worldwide and southern Europe office network with our own MPL differentiators (i.e., our specialized and enthusiastic staff), to allow us to serve our international customers even better.

“The main goal is to honor and develop Cargolândia’s long-term relationships with local customers and partners", says Guy Pasmans, CEO of Manuport Logistics.

“The key motivation behind entering this partnership is that we share the same vision and mentality as the MPL family,” explains Pedro Ferreira, Managing Director at Cargolândia.

The integration and further expansion of Manuport Logistics Portugal will be a joint effort by the local team and head office in Antwerp. The local management will remain on board and become a minority shareholder.
