"Giving new worlds to the world"

Portugal, due to its geographical position, but also its history,

still keeps a strong Atlantic calling.


Its geographical position, integration in the European Union, the network of modern and practical road, rail, ports and airports infrastructures allow the simplified and agile management of the flows of goods between the three continents with Atlantic coast and make Portugal the privileged entry way in the Euro-Atlantic axis.


Portuguese ports annually handle a total cargo above 80 million tons (2.5 million TEU). Arnaud has its two terminals in privileged sites for movement and coordination of the cargo handling through the most important ports.


Portugal has more than 1.400 weekly air connections to 95 destinations and the two main airports (Lisbon and Porto) are located less than 10 minutes from our cargo terminals. Arnaud is the first certified IATA agent in Portugal and has been distinguished over recent years with the TOP TAP Cargo award by TAP Air Portugal.


Portugal nowadays has one of the best road infrastructures in the world, according to the annual report of the World Economic Forum. The inter-connection, through Spain, with the remaining countries in Europe, as a part of the Trans-European Transport Network, allows for an optimized circulation of goods between the different countries, in an economical, fast and secure way.
