About

History

Juan Martínez, Vasco Gallega de Consignaciones (VGC) founder, was an entrepreneur in every sense of the word: In 1976, he started a small business, establishing a ship agency in the port of Vigo. In the course of the late 1970s, he took a personal interest in the export logistics of local granite quarries. VGC saw its biggest growth over the following decades mainly due to the explosion of granite exports. That was the beginning of a new company, specialized in providing end-to-end integral logistics solutions to the local mining industry. VGC naturally became a global leader in granite and natural stone logistics. 

As the millennium approached, VGC turned its thoughts to the future, extending the company’s services to other natural resources materials such as timber or steel and non-iron products, as well as to the naval industry. During the first decade of the 2000s, we broadened our horizons to industrial projects and wind power integral logistics. In 2007-08 Red Ball Logistics (container freight forwarding), VGL and Green Ball (supply chain management and added value services) were established.

During the late 2000s, the opening of new subsidiaries in India, Brazil, China and Angola marked Vasco Gallega Group´s (VGG) overseas expansion, as VGG continued to introduce new logistics solutions and state-of-the-art products. In the fall of 2013, VGG was rebranded KALEIDO, Ideas & Logistics. As a new, unified global brand, KALEIDO has become (and perhaps always has been) a company that embodies logistics in all its forms.

Today, we have a network of over 50 agencies and we have joined forces with over 450 specialists worldwide. We are investing for the future to ensure corporate sustainability: in global reach, in technologies, in IT, in people, in brands, in R&D. With major long-term projects still to be unveiled, Kaleido has a lot of logistics in the proverbial supply chain.
