About us

Our history

The company, historically known as Manuel Páez, was founded in 1928 by Manuel Páez Montoya in the province of Almería.

In its beginnings, Manuel Páez had four wagons pulled by mule trains (a set of mules) thanks to which he offered his services of transporting grapes in 22kg barrels from the town of Berja in Almería to the Port of Almería. There, they would leave by ship to Great Britain and the United States, among other destinations.

This activity gave rise to new business lines related to international trade and transport, with maritime exports of citrus fruits and grapes being the first customs activities carried out by the company to the USA, Norway and India.

Four generations behind it all

Years later, the incorporation of his son Manuel Páez Páez to the company, coincided with the proliferation of exports, which found in the railway another potential transport to Europe for the same products, and with it, giving rise to an exponential growth of the company with destination countries such as Great Britain and Germany.

Around the 70's, José Manuel Páez Romero joined the company, the third generation of a company, which increased its yields thanks to the development and the boom of the so-called "mar de plástico" of Almeria.

The entry of Spain into the European Union caused a drastic reduction in the business volume and the consequent decrease over the years, as the countries started joining the European Union and, therefore, all customs procedures were eliminated.

Relaunching new horizons

Currently, the fourth generation of the family has joined the company, consisting of José Manuel Páez Vizcaíno and Alberto Páez Vizcaíno, taking advantage of the opportunity that the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union has provided to the company, with the aim of relaunching and expanding new horizons and lines of business for the company and, not only to continue with the tradition of the same, but also to position it as a benchmark in service, trust and innovation in the sector.


The mission of Paez Aduanas is to help companies that carry out export and import operations in the processing of the necessary customs documentation, with the aim of avoiding any kind of concern in this regard, and getting them to save time and money.

Our commitment to the seas and oceans

The seas and oceans are the basis of life on the planet. Yet we have turned them into a dumping ground.

The problem of plastic pollution in our seas and oceans is increasing to and alarming rate. According to a study by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, it is estimated that, at the curren trate of plastic production, there will be more plastic than fish in our seas and oceans by 2050.

As a result of these facts, we have felt very identified with the initiative of Gravity Wave, a social startup of circular economy and environmental awareness whose main goal is to clean the seas and oceans of plastic and then recycle and transform them to give them a second life.

We contribute by helping to remove for recycling:

220 lb of plastic

per month from the Mediterranean Sea
