The aim of Ital Logistics is to provide a quality, reliable and personalised service, with openness, honesty and integrity.
Ital Logistics was founded in August 2000 initially offering road freight transport services to and from Italy. Since then, our service portfolio has increased beyond Italy to include similar road freight services to and from Spain, Portugal, and Greece, as well as offering freight forwarding services throughout Western, Central and Eastern Europe. And more recently, following customer demand, we also provide maritime and air freight services worldwide.
The aim of Ital Logistics is to provide a quality, reliable and personalised service, with openness, honesty and integrity. From the beginning this has always been our guiding philosophy, irrespective of client size or status. Not every client is the same and each has particular needs. We pride ourselves on being able to listen and understand these needs, and work our model around our clients.
We specialise in the carriage of dangerous goods in scope of ADR and IMDG, and this specialisation is spread through all services. Ensuring compliance, we have two on-site DGSAs, the first being myself, and the second is my colleague Derek Heap. Our new purpose built 16,000ft² warehouse facility in Manchester is compliant in this regard. Additional third party receiving facilities in the South and the Midlands, also compliant, complement our UK wide coverage.

On four occasions we have entered the British International Freight Association Awards; firstly in 2002 when we were winners of the ‘European Services Award’; next in 2007 picking up the same winner’s trophy for a second time; and more recently in 2012 and 2015 when we reached the finals. This, from the industry’s governing body, is praise indeed and vindication of our business ethic.
There is nothing pretentious about Ital Logistics. We have built our reputation by providing a reliable and competitive service to the very best of our abilities, and we will continually endeavour to do just that. The only way to evaluate if we do what we say is to try our service. As one of our clients who did sample our service quoted – “Your reputation as a ‘doer’ is refreshing by contrast to the plethora of suppliers I am burdened with who ‘can’t do’.”
At Ital Logistics we take the matter of transporting goods which are hazardous very seriously indeed, and do our utmost to ensure that they are carried in compliance with the rules of ADR & IMDG. Around 25% of our total business is made up of the transport of dangerous goods. Many companies shy away from […]
