“Being located on an island, shipping is of the outmost importance in our business. For decades Transinsular has been our privileged partner in this important function, of taking our products close to the consumer market. Since part of our products – namely cheese and butter – are perishable, the service of refrigerated containers is vital and in this aspect, Transinsular has really provided an excellent service.”

O nosso compromisso

We connect Continental Portugal to the Azores and Madeira, Africa, Northern Europe, Baltic, the Mediterranean, the American continent and Asian markets.
This service covers the transport of non-containerized cargo, homogeneous or not, without itineraries or pre-defined regularity, and it is based on the principle of “one cargo, one ship”.
Refrigerated Containers or Reefers are used to transport perishable cargo that requires controlled temperature conditions, such as: vegetables, fruit, fish, meat, wine, pharmaceuticals, among others.

We set up the transport solution to our Customer’s needs, which may involve the development of Container prototypes that meet the load requirements.

STRONG ADVANTAGES OF TRANSINSULAR
The excellence of what we do, motivates the choice of our customers.
“We have been working with Transinsular for several years with the livestock and more recently with dairy products. It is a reliable company, precisely for the service it provides us every week.”
Francisco Barcelos, President, Quinta dos Açores
“Without the partnership with Transinsular all our logistics would not be possible. Nowadays we have to send empty containers, olive oil and oil to our factories where we produce the canned tuna and then send them back to the mainland.”
Luís Cumbrera Tavares, Administration Assistent, Cofaco
“In the todays business world, success also means partnering with companies who can guarantee a professional, efficient, fast delivery service based on a relationship, trust and mutual help. These were the qualities that we found in Transinsular professionals. In a relationship of years, Transinsular is part of our daily life, transporting our wood from Madeira Island to the Continent.”
Rui Pereira, Diretor, RSP Madeiras Lda
“Ensuring a good transport service is a competitive advantage to mitigate the effects of the outermost regions of the Madeira Island. Over the years, Transinsular has been a trusted partner for transport of food (cereals, pasta, oil and bran) from the mailand to Madeira and from Madeira to the Azores and the Mainland.”
Carlos Batista, CEO, INSULAR – Produtos Alimentares S.A.
“Communication and mobility are key issues in island regions. The ease and speed with which people and goods are transported, particularly in regions with few natural resources, are indispensable factors for their development and economic growth. In the case of cement marketed by Cimentos Madeira and since the beginning of its activity in 1985, Transinsular has been an excellent partner by ensuring, with quality and high service levels provided, not only the transport of cement in bulk carriers, but also their Agency. Over the years Transinsular has been a key partner for Cimentos Madeira’s success.”
José Franco, CEO, Cimentos Madeira
“It is with pride and satisfaction that we acknowledge being part of the Transinsular Madeira ‘s history. Likewise we recognize this partner as crucial in the success and progress of Nóbrega throughout our 53 years of existence. Transinsular’s transport services allow us, with confidence and security, to exceed the thousands of kilometers of ocean that separate the Madeira Island from the World, ensuring that our goods, refrigerated and frozen, are received in a secure and timely manner, something we have always counted from Transinsular. Nobrega Company praises Transinsular Madeira for its proximity and extremely efficient Service, not only caring for the regular operations, but also anticipating possible obstacles, always responding with solutions in a way that never compromises our operation.”
