A Brief History about Twin


Twin began its trajectory as a freight forwarding company. Under the name Patriot do Brasil Transportes Internacionais Ltda., in 1989, it was born as a branch of the German company Patriot Speditiongesellschaft Gross & Co., in Porto Alegre.  With the growth and consolidation of its operations in the capital of Rio Grande do Sul, it opted, in 1994, for an independent management of the head office.  At that moment the company changed its name to Twin.

With extensive presence in the freight forwarding market, especially for the leather-footwear sector, the company consolidated its recognition in the market, and, in 1996, signed an exclusive alliance agreement with AEI (Air Express International), one of the largest freight forwarders of the world at that time.

In order to complement its offer of services in addition to freight forwarding operations, through experiences acquired in practice and through investments in employees’ training and partnerships, Twin also began to dedicate to customs clearance of its customer’s cargos in the following years.


With the success of complementary operations and with mergers that occurred in the following years among great logistics operators, in 2005, Twin returned acting independently. This independence led the company to invest continuously in the training of its team, culminating in the increasingly intense development of activities in areas of customs and tax consulting.

Today, with the experience gained throughout its trajectory, Twin offers a wide range of services that provide complete solutions in logistics and customs operations as well as in customs and tax consulting. Excellence in results is guaranteed by its experienced and constantly updated team, besides being based in a history of solidity, evolution and responsibility.
