We were in 1964 when the automobile assembly line was installed in Mangualde (Portugal). In the absence of national carriers that could meet the transport needs of this plant, the French carrier PAT- PARIS AQUITAINE joins the automobile factory to open a branch office in Portugal. And that is how Patinter is born. Patinter was the first Portuguese company to have lorries with licences to carry 40 tons and have 13 meters in length. It was the year of 1967 when PATINTER was formally established. However, it started its activity in 1968 when the formalities were completed.
