Alfonso Abril - Co-owner of Transportes Las Maravillas, Spain
Pharmaceuticals are delicate products. They must be carefully transported in temperature-controlled trailers, and pharmaceutical companies will only hire logistics partners who can provide evidence of this. But for Murcia-based logistics firm Transportes Las Maravillas, who began to specialise in this field 10 years ago, it is no problem.
One of the current owners, Alfonso Abril, explains why: “My father started the company in 1979 as a refrigerated transport company for fruit and vegetables. But more recently, we have become experts at transporting pharmaceuticals. We needed to achieve quality certifications in order to operate but, as our reputation grows, we can invest in better machinery and bring even better levels of service to pharmaceutical clients.”
Since they began transporting fruit and vegetables in the 1970s, Transportes Las Maravillas has always insisted on high quality, and Alfonso is delighted to work with a tyre partner who shares those values: “These are difficult times and we have to work hard and keep moving forward. With Goodyear, we are always becoming stronger.”
