Verona is, for some, synonymous with William Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’, a story that historically precedes Shakespeare himself. It is also the home of the ‘Arena di Verona’, a Roman amphitheatre in Piazza Bra built in the 1st century, and is internationally famous for the large scale opera performances given there. I can recommend a fantastic restaurant just around the corner where the wine list is incredible if anyone is interested!
For us, however, Verona is where our Italian partner has its second office and warehouse serving the whole Veneto region, and the majority of Emilia-Romagna. From Verona, we can collect and deliver to the provinces of Verona, Vicenza, Padova, Udine, Treviso, Pordenone, Trento, Bolzano, Rovigo, and not forgetting the capital of the Veneto region, Venice. And if I have missed any off, that’s any province with a post code beginning with a 3!
As for the Emilia-Romagna regions, we provide road freight transport services to and from the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna, Ferrara, Forli-Cesena, Ravenna and Rimini. That’s all with a postcode beginning with a 4.
- Our service to and from Verona, like Milan, is also direct and again (almost) daily. Whilst we can transport dangerous goods on most of the trailers serving this region, the North East of Italy is not quite as chemical based as Lombardy and Piedmont. Transit times vary between 2-3 days between UK and Verona hubs.
Apart from the associated islands around Venice, road freight transport between the UK and the North east of Italy is rarely problematic. Driving restrictions are perhaps the only real difficulty which is encountered with increasing annoyance, primarily as a result of often needing to traverse Austria and Germany where we find certain stowage regulations with regards to dangerous good are inconsistently applied. But that’s another story.
