Has anyone found a way to get their suitcase from Lisbon to Santiago. I have not been able to find a company yet. There is one from Porto but that does not help me.
Anyone has friends in Lisbon?

Thank you. Yes, I have read this before, will need to find out when I get there how much will it cost. My belonging are not worth that much so need to make some math

used this before with good and prompt results

https://www.sendmybag.com/

EDIT: am RE-TRACTING my recommendation of the company mentioned above.
For a new shipment needed from USA to europe - their customer-'service' provided me with infomation that was later contradicted -
Result: leaving me in some rather dire-straits that could not be remedied and had me scramble to find an alternative.
they apologised - offered 15$ that i could use for the adjusted shipment (which now was to cost 230$ instead of the initial 150$ as assured). i declined the insult and encouraged them to keep those funds, have a prosecco or two while contemplating the muck-up THEY created.
found another option - and now we shall see how they deliver. Thus far, got straight and clear answers from their customer service and prompt attention that did not loop in circles.
So far so good - will keep updates posted.

On this same line of thinking..... how about courier service such as they offer on the Frances route? Is this available to the Pilgrim? If not Lisbon.... then from Porto to Santiago?

Thank you kindly.

Thank you, just chatted with them but they don't service Spain
Really??? Ivar has suggested them before https://www.caminodesantiago.me/com...-suitcase-how-do-i-ship-it-to-santiago.45855/

And they have a page about shipping to Spain on their site: https://www.sendmybag.com/baggage-shipping-destinations/spain

EDIT - I did an online chat with SendMyBag, and indeed, they don't have service from Portugal, they do deliver to Spain though from other countries.
