Pinto Basto Angola
Two centuries of experience at the service of Angola

Angola will always be considered to be the company's first step in internationalisation. Our company was able to understand and respect the local culture, whilst remaining loyal to our principles and values. We also made use of over two centuries of experience in developing solutions that were suitable to markets with different characteristics.

Our experience proved to be a recipe for success, which has now given us market leadership and an active role in the development of Angola, becoming a benchmark company in Western Africa.


Angola is without a doubt the location where we have applied what has been one of our main strategic options: Partnerships.

The fact that we were able to become quickly recognised in the market placed us in a position to be privileged business partners, which has allowed us to diversify our activities. One example of this is our partnership with Porseg, which has made us market leader in security doors and equipment for buildings.


In Angola, we currently offer all of the traditional activities of the group, using the same strategy for creating independent companies for each sector. In these companies, we employ the best professionals, whose job it is to find the best solutions for our customers. We are present in the following sectors:

Shipping agents
Express transport
P&I Clubs
Forwarding and customs agent
Air cargo
Surveying and inspection services

The concept developed especially for the Angolan market, which due to its added challenges, unique to a country that recently underwent a decades-long war, and which is now experiencing strong growth, is based on the capacity to develop solutions on a case by case basis. These are adapted to the size of each customer, and may or may not include different types of services. In particular, the company offers its customers a single point of contact for their every transport and logistic need, and is a pioneer in the door-to-door concept in Angola to and from any part of the world.
