Extra Transportes Internacionais is a specialist in air and maritime cargo into and out of the Iberian Peninsula, as well as Customs service and storage and distribution solutions across Portugal.

“Extra Transportes was started by four like-minded and ambitious individuals in 1976 to provide a service that customers could rely on and trust,” said António Freitas, Managing Director Advisor and Network Support Manager, Extra Transportes Internacionais.

“Since first opening our doors, we now have offices in Lisbon and Porto, and as we continue to move forward, we are introducing new and automated facilities which will diversify our services to cater to customers in e-commerce, aerospace, and Food and Beverage.”

WACO has been growing its global footprint with the addition of Gollcher Group and AAA-A2 Cargo as the members for Malta and Russia respectively.
