Milan is the main industrial, commercial, and financial centre of Italy. It is the second-most populous city in Italy and the capital of Lombardy. It is said that ‘All roads lead to Rome’, and whilst this may have been true in Roman times, Milan is now the freight distribution hub of Italy.
From Milan we can provide national distribution throughout Italy, with varying transit times and frequency depending on the distance. In general, from Milan, we can provide next day transport services to and from the neighbouring provinces of Bergamo, Como, Lecco, Lodi, Monza and Brianza, Pavia, Varese and Novara. The slightly farther provinces of Brescia, Turin, Genoa and Asti, to name a few, can occasionally take an extra day depending on what time during the day the consignment is booked.
- Our service to and from Milan is direct and (almost) daily as described in the previous page. Almost all of our departures, export or import, can accommodate dangerous goods in scope of ADR.
- We can also provide temperature controlled transport, including chemicals also requiring such control. Transit times vary between 2-3 days between UK and Milan hubs.
Freight between the UK and Milan is rarely problematic, and as such it is a very competitive market. It is true that many other companies can provide similar services, though we believe that our extensive experience on the Italian market, supported by consistent praise from our clients, makes us the preferred choice of carrier. We pride ourselves on providing a high level of service which consistently meets our clients’ demands.
