Our History

Transhipping was founded in 1986, initiating its activities as cargo agent, with the purpose of exploiting the UNITED ATLANTICA LINE -UAL-, maritime line that linked the port of Valencia with the two main ports of the Canadian Atlantic coast, Toronto and Montreal. After two years of good projection, it is decided to give a new direction to the company as Freight forwarder, in order to globalize the services aimed at exporting and importing companies, consolidating a wide network of agents. Subsequently, Transhipping is established as an IATA agent to operate import and export air cargo, thus covering all the needs of its growing client base.

Currently TRANSHIPPING GROUP has offices in Barcelona, ​​Madrid and Bilbao, as well as a network of agents around the world, providing services of multimodal transport (Sea Freight, Air Freight and Road Transport), Import & Export, customs brokerage, storage and insurance.

We are Experts in International Freight Transport and Customs Management, offering a customized service in each operation.

Your trusted freight forwarder

From our origins, the working philosophy of TRANSHIPPING GROUP and success formula is based on the combination of three elements:

(Experience + customized solutions) x personalized attention

The extensive experience of our teams of professionals allows us to manage operations of any level of complexity and type of goods. However, the attitude to offer personalized attention and an agile response is what makes the difference to offer not only a good service, but the best service. This formula of success has given us the confidence of our customers for more than 30 years.

Behind the best service are the best professionals. The specialization according to type of merchandise, transport mode, place of origin or destination is key to offer an agile service of the highest quality. For this reason we have highly qualified professionals in continuous training, as well as the direct involvement of top management in all projects.

The management team is available to our clients at any time for advice on: logistics routes, transport routes, as well as customs and documentary procedures.
