Our Company

A beacon of strength, leadership and direction

Portilius derives its name from the original, ancient Roman harbour of Portus, an ancient Roman port build in AD 62. 

It evokes the notion of a hub that supported the development of one of the world’s most impressive trading civilisations. The iconic, hexagonal harbour basin was surrounded on all sides by the faculties essential to maritime trade – great wharves and shipyards, merchants’ offices, fortifications and connection to inland routes.

Portilius may not have a boat-building facility (yet) but the functions of our digital harbour are remarkably similar.

Connect with the world via a secure and supportive platform, surrounded by all the services you need to achieve successful international trade.

…Your business is your empire, this is your doorway to global trade.
