History


A. Sá Teixeira, Lda was created in 1974, same year as the revolution in Portugal that established a democratic system in Portugal. During its early years it main focus was the supply of portuguese motor tank vessels from oil company "Petrogal" serving the refinery nearby Leixoes.

In the mid 90's with Petrogal's fleet significatily reduced, the main focus became short sea shipping vessels, providing fast, reliable and cost-effective solutions to our customers.

Since 2009 the company started working regularly also on portuguese ports of Aveiro, Viana do Castelo, Figueira da Foz, and occasionally north Spain and South Portugal ports (Lisbon, Sines, Setúbal).

As a result of increasing work solicitations, in 2012 A. Sá Teixeira changed its Head Office to a more modern facility with its own warehouse, five minutes away from Leixoes' port in order to keep the fast response times that are the company's trademark.
