The family-owned transport operator Faftir, which have its headquarters in Fafe, in Northern Portugal, have been the customer’s guarantee for professional and competitive service for more than 20 years. Since the company was founded by João Ribeiro in 2001, the company have strived to be best in class. This has now led to the installation of solar cells on the company’s trucks. 

With Europe as a workplace 

Since the company embarked on their first transport assignment to Germany in 2002, the course has been set with Europa as a workplace. The land transportation of both national and international shipments requires planning when it comes to the company’s 60 employees and its fleet of 45 units. The company experienced rapid growth and in 2007 the company moved to its current location. Throughout their journey, it has been important to maintain their focus on reliable service and a high level of expertise. Through experienced, engaged and highly qualified personnel and a fleet that meets the highest standards, Faftir still manage to deliver a service that focuses on close cooperation and meeting deadlines. That is just one of the reasons why the company has decided to install solar cells on the company’s trucks.  

Reliable, robust and trustworthy is the mantra 

Being a transport operator, reliability is a necessity. Therefore the CEO, João Ribeiro, had a great interest in finding solutions that can maintain higher operational reliability. Ricardo Goncalves from Green Energy/MIPV.pro has helped with the installation of a 110Wp solar cell set on one of the company’s Renault – T tractor units. Here he meets CEO João Ribeiro, who explains the reason behind choosing this exact solar cell solution.
