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.
