For part load road freight we can collect your freight directly from your premises with our nationwide next-day collection service. Alternatively, deliver your freight directly to one of our receiving depots throughout the UK. For part load road freight, goods should be packed onto wooden pallets or into plywood shipping cases. For loose shipments we offer a full palletising service, either at your depot or at our receiving warehouse prior to shipment.

For full load road freight to Italy, we will generally deliver an empty truck to your premises for you to pack and load. If this is not possible then we can receive goods at our warehouse and load into a vehicle on your behalf.

Regardless of whether goods are sent as a part-load or full-load shipment, delivery to Italy will be direct to the recipient’s premises. We can arrange delivery using tail-lift vehicles where goods are heavy and there is no lifting equipment.

We can arrange comprehensive marine transit insurance to protect against all risks during transit and offer storage both in UK and in Italy.

Freight Cost from UK to Italy

Freight costs to Italy will depend on the size and weight of the consignment and the choice between airfreight and road freight. For small shipments which do not fill a whole pallet airfreight will often work out cheaper – particularly if  sending freight on a door-to-door basis. For larger shipments, road freight is better value at the expense of a longer transit time. For very large shipments a dedicated vehicle may prove best value.

To enable us to accurately calculate your freight cost to Italy, we will need to know the length, width, height and weight of each item being shipped. If  goods are  being sent on pallets or in cases then the measurements of these should be supplied.

If you do not have exact dimensions and weights then we can provide an estimated freight cost to Italy which we will adjust when exact specifications are known.
