Baggage Transfer from Porto to Santiago (no stops in between)

Walking the Camino Frances in April 2020.
I'll be living and working in Porto for a couple months and then walking the Camino Portuguese at the start of March 2024. I'd like to find a transfer company to move one hard-sided case from my flat in Porto to Santiago - straight through without any stops. A few problems I'm encountering...

1. I can't find a company shipping bags that early in the season.
2. Where could I send my bag to be safe until I arrive 12 days later?

I've no doubt there are many here who have solutions I've not considered and I'll be so glad to hear them. Thank you in advance!
 
Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.

€60,-
I had a good outcome sending stuff to Casa Ivar from Lisboa using the CTT. Whether your suitcase meets the max parcel limits would be the issue here. It might be on their website, but you might need to ask at a local CTT office. The alternative might be companies like DHL if the specialised baggage transport providers aren't available when you want to ship your suitcase.

I did the same as dougfitz, used the CTT. Worked fine, no issues, and had the pleasure of meeting Ivar himself when we retrieved the boxes.
 
Thanks everyone for your helpful suggestions, they are most appreciated!

@ivar - would it be possible to store my bags with you for about three weeks? As I mentioned at the start of this thread, I'll be working in Porto for about a month and then walking the Camino Portuguese, followed immediately by the Ingles. I'm looking for a safe place to leave my bags (which will include my work laptop and monitor) while I walk both routes.

Thank you most sincerely for all you do for the pilgrim community! :)

I am planning a walk starting in A Guarda and following the Portugues Coastal but getting to A Guarda does not look easy. I will be flying out from the UK which gives me options of flying into...
