We are a family-owned company committed to continuously overcoming challenges in this industry that we know so well and are passionate about.

The founder of Marcombi, Francesco Praderio, was born into a family of carriers from northern Italy and moved to Barcelona at the beginning of the 70s to be the benchmark for the company in the rapidly expanding Spanish market. He lives and actively participates in the beginnings of Short Distance Maritime Transport (TMCD) as an alternative to road transport between Italy and Spain.

His direct participation in the problem solving and responding to the needs of the new mode of transport, together with the knowledge acquired during his years on the road, give him a very complete global vision of the new market´s requirements and potential. In 2003 he founded Mare Combinato, hereinafter Marcombi, with the aim of offering Italian carriers who were beginning to use the Short See Shipping system with the shipping company Grimaldi, the transport service for their trailers to the final destination. This is how Marcombi began its business path as a Spanish benchmark in the TMCD for the elderly.
