Slogan Davila


Davila Group’s parent company, Joaquín Davila y Cía, was founded in 1917 as a General Partnership and then turned into a Corporation in 1962.

The company’s headquarters were initially established in Vigo, and its main activities were:

  • Oceanic liner shipping agents.
  • Ship owners, including sailboats.
  • Tramp ship agent.
  • Customs agents.

In time, Joaquín Davila y Cía. moved its headquarters to Madrid and opened new branches in every main port on the Iberian Peninsula. In addition, its activities expanded to include:

  • Chartering.
  • Transit.
  • Air freight (IATA Agents).
  • Transport Logistics.
  • Road Freight.
  • Railway Freight.

ALTIUS was founded in 1.999, as a result of customs and transit areas’ diversification. ALTIUS in addition to the above mentioned services, it expanded to include integral logistics, thus supporting the External Trade sector in all its aspects.

In 2002 the DAVILA GROUP began the centralization of administrative services of the different companies under it. This process concluded satisfactorily in 2005 with the consolidation of an independent company called DAVILA SERVICIOS ADMINISTRATIVOS.

That same year, the GROUP promoted the commercial brand ROYAL SPANISH, geared towards mega yacht owners and offering such services as: management, chartering, ship brokers, technical advice, inspection of the construction process, crew and docking management, etc.

In order to protect the interests of those shipowners we represent, and to avoid unpredictable and unwanted conflicts of interest, DAVILA GROUP offers its services via three totally independent companies such as, MARITIMA DAVILA, MARITIMA ASTONDO and MARITIMA DEL ORIENTE.

Currently our port facilities include several entirely owned marine terminals such as TERMAVI (Vigo’s container terminal), DAVILA REEFER TERMINAL (refrigeration facilities at the Marin port) and others with shared partnerships like TCT (Tenerife Container Terminal) and ESTICARGO (Marin’s stevedoring reefer cargo).

Our port facilities also include MARINA DAVILA SPORT, our own marina in Vigo, aimed at providing our customers with a comprehensive service in the nautical sports field.

Furthermore, our marina offers ample and secure berths for bigger recreational boats such as mega yachts.

The MARINA DAVILA RESTAURANT, also located at our marina, has a warm and welcoming décor and enjoys privileged stunning views over Vigo’s estuary. It offers a wide range of succulent à la carte dishes prepared the traditional Galician way but garnished and presented in a contemporary fashion.

Last but not least, there are several companies in the DAVILA GROUP which specialize in real estate, financial investments and in alternative energies.
