Respect for the environment
Our story began in the summer of 1977. Armando Lopes Pereira and Maria Bertina Branca Calado Pereira arrived from Angola in 1975 and established themselves in Valado dos Frades. They soon realized that there were many farmers in Valado and the surroundings that needed solutions to have their products sold in the market in Lisbon. They founded the company Transportes Armando Pereira with the objective of providing the transport of vegetables from the village of Valado dos Frades to the Supply market of Lisbon. The business at the time proved to be quite innovative, an innovation that guides the growth, over the years, of Transportes do Valado.
The name of the company was changed to Transportes Rodoviários de Mercadorias do Valado, Lda and this name was used up until 2021. From this date, with only 2 TIR vehicles, the company begins to dedicate itself exclusively to the international transport of goods.
The company now has 10 heavy goods vehicles.
The company already has 17 heavy goods vehicles. The partners felt the need to acquire a new space that would allow to adapt the response to the level of demand of the clients. This new space allows, nowadays, all the maintenance of the fleet to be made in the best possible way. From 1986 to 2002 fleet renewals have been constant in order to guarantee an average age of 4 years.
A new pavilion was constructed to allow the storage of general goods. A serious crisis shaked the transport sector. However, the company continued to strengthen, always betting on growth, as, despite the severe crisis that shook the freight transport sector, it was the partners' option to increase its fleet to a total of 27 vehicles.
The company maintains its bet on LTL to and from the UK by opening a cross-docking warehouse in Estarreja.
The company continues to grow in terms of structure and, thanks to the growing commitment to the company's human resources, it is now possible to offer new transport solutions. On this date the fleet has a total of 72 vehicles.
Transportes do Valado starts operating weekly Multi-Modal services to and from the UK via Portugal and Spain. Year of major changes at IT level, with a strong and thoughtful commitment to internationalization through the opening of a warehouse in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain, and another in West Thurrock, England.
The partners decided to close Estarreja warehouse. Opening of a cross-docking warehouse in Vagos. On this date the fleet has a total of 86 vehicles.
Implementation of a new ERP SAP Business One with Transport Management vertical. This “always in touch” IT solution allows for complete transparency of processes as well as real-time communication. Opening of the Container Carrier and Sea Freight Service.
Implementation of the Quality Management System according to NP EN ISO 9001:2015. Implementation of the Environmental Management System according to NP EN ISO 14001:2015. Partnership with GLS for distribution of packaging at national and international level. On this date the fleet already has more than 100 vehicles.
