In 1860 a pioneer called Mr. Estanislao Durán founded Estanislao Durán e Hijos, S.A., a company devoted to peninsular trade, and so established the basis for today's prestigious shipping agency E. Durán Shipping P&I Services, S.L. A born enterprising person, he was creating the profile of a both consolidated and dynamic company, aware of the new arising business strategies.
In 2006 E. Duran Shipping P&I Services, S.L. gains a global dimension by joining Perez y Cía. Group, one of the largest shipping and logistics networks in Spain —with 23 offices in the Iberian Peninsula and the Canary Islands, including its headquarters in Madrid— and overseas, mainly concentrated in the Caribbean with presence also in Colombia and Panamá.
