It is a clear commitment to the road transport sector and the chemical industry, stable employment and the national economy. Transportes Santos will continue to operate as such, maintaining all its commitments and contractual agreements, reinforced and strengthened as it now forms part of a larger, more solid and diversified group with more capacity for investment, growth and future development. D.Rafael Santos Vela will continue to be linked to the company and will remain as proxy, which will facilitate an orderly, progressive and professional transition and integration.
