MEDWAY IS THE NEW BRAND NAME THAT, WHAT USED TO BE CP-CARGA, IS GOING TO OPERATE AS, STARTING TODAY

MEDWAY is the new brand name that, what used to be CP-Carga, is going to operate as, starting today. In order to become the largest logistics operator in the Iberian Peninsula MEDWAY’s strategy involves expanding its upstream and downstream activities to offer integrated logistics and transport solutions and widening its activity into Spain. Back in May, the company rebranded itself as MEDLOG, a name that the MSC Group uses in other geographies for its logistics businesses and that it owns as a European brand name. However, as there was already another company operating with the same name in Portugal, the Board decided to adopt a new name in Portugal to make its presence clear and unequivocal and that makes it stand out in the sector.
