These photographs will give you an idea of just how much bulk liquid transport has changed over the last hundred years. Despite all the changes, Transportes Martín has been able to adapt with the times and maintain its position as sector leader. Without a doubt, this is largely due to the work of our founder, Antonio Martín Ibáñez, who since establishing Transportes Martín in 1925, knew how to instil this philosophy of ongoing improvement in the company. Antonio Martín Ibáñez was a man with a vision who turned his company into Spain’s pioneering bulk liquid tanker truck transport company. Little wonder then, that for forty years Transportes Martín enjoyed a reputation as the leading food liquid transporter in Spain (in wines and oils in particular). In the 1960s, the company’s focus was reoriented, and greater emphasis was placed on the transport of bulk liquid chemical products, which today represents our main source of business.

Today, the company is still managed by the Martín family (4th Generation), which began diversifying the services offered by the company as well as to create new operating divisions to monitor the transport and distribution of chemical products, fuels and cryogenic liquids by road.
