About us

We have been in Colombia since 1970 when we were Global Services S.A.


In 1992 we changed our name to Portan S.A. and became funded with 100% Colombian capital. During all these years we have followed the highest standards of professional ethics, quality, security, on a strong financial base. Our services have been offered mainly to multinationals, diplomats and multilateral organizations in Colombia.

Thanks to our experience and professionalism we have moved more than 5,000 families all over the world, to and from Colombia, with the professionalism and dedication that our clients deserve. We have moved not only household goods but lives, dreams and emotions, and as a result achieving great satisfaction not only for our clients but also for our staff.


For Portan the client is our first priority and our reason for being here and encourages us every day to give our best. Our dedication to service makes the difference and our greatest success is obtaining your satisfaction for the services received.

In Portan we recognize creativity and innovation through the constant stimulation and motivation of our staff in order to promote and develop suggestions, improvements and new ideas and projects. We encourage, at all times a proactive attitude to anticipate and respond to the specific necessities of each client.

In Portan we value team work and understand that the coordination capacity of our staff is a sign of professional excellence and the ability to do things well from the very beginning.

Trust is hard to be earned. Portan works hard day after day to reach this goal, client by client. Portan understands that international moves signify transportation and manipulation of belongings and objects of much value, which means your home, intimacy and history. We strive for excellence in providing responsible, professional and ethical service, thereby giving the clients the necessary trust and assurance that our team will always take very good care of their valuable belongings.

Portan owes our clients top quality service and this is reflected in: our client satisfaction; timely communication, information and service; efficient use of resources; a professional and well-trained team; a constant development in searching continuous improvement; consistency in all our processes and attention to details.


We have a great team which inspires confidence as of the initial contact. Our staff is a highly qualified and trained team which understand the emotional feelings that accompany a family in any relocation process.

Beginning with our sales team and later with the traffic one, packing and administrative staff our clients receive a friendly and timely service guaranteeing personal and professional attention understanding the special needs of each person or family.

Keeping in mind the importance of the human talent we have always believed in the development of our employees at a professional level. Therefore, we have always promoted and coordinated ongoing training. We care about the development of policies of well-being and coexistence ensuring a friendly work environment which carries over to our quality.


We have implemented programs of internal consciousness to save energy, water and reduce the ozone layer through the recycling of packing materials which are separated and then sold to recycling companies.
Our policy for supplier selection is also in-line with our policy of eco-sustainability.
We are conscious and sensitive to the social necessities of our country and the commitment a company should have toward the development of a better country for future generations. We support social causes focused on the education for the less fortunate by funding scholarships and contributing to institutions and foundations.
