Freight forwarding a. hartrodt group relocated from Genoa old town to Molassana where they will be supported by 2,500 square metres warehouse.

The German company helmed in Italy by former Spediporto's President Maurizio Fasce has been operating in Italy since 1959 through subsidiary a. hartrodt italiana, actually recruiting overall 38 staff in Genoa and Milan.

The Italian headquarters is also controlling the 'Mediterranean and Africa' region, not only managing and coordinating business in Italy but also in Portugal, Spain, Slovenia, Greece, Turkey, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

This sub-holding records 50 million Euro turnover and 150 multi-ethnic direct workers.

Furthermore a. hartrodt is a multinational founded in Hamburg in 1887 operating in freight forwarding and logistics businesses in 46 countries through a thick network listing over 100 on property facilities.

The group's turnover stands at 500 million Euro/year.

“We chose Genoa as regional headquarters for the Mediterranean being traditionally deeply rooted in shipping activities and particularly for his strategic position which turns it into a natural gateway for Mediterranean countries but also for the wide market spreading among Switzerland, Austria and Southern Germany”, illustrates the company.

“The investment in new premises and warehouses in Genoa ensued from their parent company's intention  to directly manage ancillary services”.

The new 2,500 square metres warehouse (including temperature controlled areas) will consent a. hartrodt italiana to provide not only warehousing services, pick&pack and deliveries, but also and particularly to offer groupage services to all Mediterranean regions (including Switzerland and Austria) reaching over 15 destinations.
