Lisbon has always been a gate and a connection centre from Europe to the World and vice versa. Filkemp•’s outstanding location just outside of Lisbon (18km from the city centre), allows for the best sea transportation costs to Northern Europe, Americas or to the emerging Asian countries. 

In terms of land transportation, getting to Central Europe takes just two days. Portuguese road transport services are among the cheapest in Europe, and therefore being located in an apparent peripheral location is no longer a handicap.
