VASCO, founded in Bilbao in 1970, is a global family company dedicated to international transport, logistics, consultancy and innovation. Sustainable growth, which began as a shipping agent in the Port of Bilbao, has enabled it to achieve this international projection after more than 50 years of development.
During this half century of experience, the group has adapted to the needs that transport has required. It began its journey by sea, but in order to diversify its range of services, the company created VASCO Bohemia to also dedicate itself to land transport. With this new service, the company went international in 1996 and reached Eastern European countries such as the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary. Then, in 2017, it conquered the only means of transport it did not offer in its portfolio: air transport.
In addition to providing transport services, VASCO realised, after listening to the demands of its customers, that it should also offer logistics operations and consultancy solutions. Thus, in 2005, the group created In Side Logistics, a commitment to automation and digitalisation adapted to the customer.
In response to the global trend towards digitalisation, the group chose to join the digital transformation and created VTLAB in 2018. It is now applying the knowledge acquired and developing market-dedicated applications and technologies, such as Tookane, an online platform that connects all the players involved in the supply chain. VASCO is present in six countries around the world, including the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Mauritania. Besides, it covers practically all the activities that make up the logistics chain.
