In 1978, Manfred Dück had a pioneer vision, and started Cifob Cargo one of the first established cargo agencies to provide customized services. This helped development on foreign trading.
A second step was taken in 1994, when he started along with his son Bernardo, Sumpramar. A free port warehouse specialized in regional distribution with high tech solutions and support & logistic consultancy. The major goal was to optimize customer resources.
Today the group has consolidated a third step with Carolina, taking part in project cargo & power plants, investment projects, timber and forestation. Following tradition and values, this family owned company had combined strong principles, moderation and growth.
